Snowmageddon in the Smokys 2014

So we are in the midst of snowmageddon 2014 here in the Smoky Mountains and so I'm not planning on leaving the house for the next day or two.  I'll be spending the time reorganizing my work area (today) and painting tomorrow.  They are calling for 5 to 10 inches although there has been a great deal of uncertainty with this forecast. 

Uncertainty can be frustrating and scary.  Most people like a safe and predictable course and when something upsets that they can become discontented, stressed out and can make some hasty bad decisions.  Been there, done that.  But uncertainty is all a part of life, and it is in uncertain times that we need to rely and trust in God more then ever. No one can know what will happen tomorrow, only God knows that.

Matthew 6:25-34 ESV
“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Right now I can honestly tell you I am in one of the most uncertain times of my life.   I worry more then I should and I know I need to trust God more and worry less... or rather, trust God COMPLETELY and worry NOT AT ALL. but I am human... and I do trust God completely.. but I still have to deal with the consequences of my decisions and actions. Trusting God does not mean all our problems go away.  Anyway, I am making an effort to worry less, to not let uncertainty rule my thoughts or decisions.  Whatever happens, God's got this.

So.. In honor of Snowmageddon
