Sunday's Coming

Good morning from Newcastle , Oklahoma.
We made our trip without any problems.
Even though we couldn't park where we normally do when we arrived, God said, "Not to worry." He had a plan and we will wait and see how He uses us where we are for His glory.
It's a pretty park, quiet and peaceful, not far from my mother and a short drive to LaVon's (about 15 miles).
I still dont know what we are going to do this summer. We still need income to live, but we will trust in God to provide what we need as He has done faithfully since we have been doing this ministry.

I want to thank each of you for your prayers, emails, phone calls and financial support. Oh, how you encourage us. A special thank you to all who wished me a happy birthday. You truly made it a special day. And, also, to those who sent us happy anniversay wishes, thank you.

Have a great day, love you, pass it on.

The Reason We Are Stressed
"Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall He not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?" Matthew 6:30
Do you know the reason we're stressed? Because we think our needs are not going to be met. We say, "Oh my goodness, I'm not going to have what I need!"
Jesus tells us not to worry about what you are going to eat. And don't worry about what you are going to wear. He's saying only one thing is important -- His righteousness. These things don't even take significance until your deepest needs are met. You are to find your satisfaction in Him. If you don't find your satisfaction in Him, you're going to be stressed.
Are you stressed out about something today? Turn it over to Jesus and turn your focus to Him. Let Jesus meet your needs and transform your heart today.

I am so glad you made it to OK safely. Enjoy the summer and stay in good health. I look forward to reading more of the Baker blogs. I'm not doing so well at updating mine. We are painting and it is really wearing us both out. Happy Mother's day to LaVon.

Glad you are there safely & have had much fun celebrating!
You are so right - "seek ye first the kingdom of God". Oh how easy it is to forget that sometimes. Then to remember it isn't our needs that we think we are stressed about, it's our wants. I've found so many times that I think I want something & then when it's time to get it, I don't need it. I think God is telling me something!
But He gives us the best! Sometimes the unexpected answers to prayers that we've forgotten we even asked Him! His time is not our time.
