Be Not Anxious for Tomorrow: An Angel Message

During these fearful times of shifting sands, the challenge is to try our best to use the troubling situations we face as an opportunity to awaken from spiritual amnesia.  A wake-up call to rise up higher and keep the faith.  Adversity can be a gift to grow spiritually when embraced as Children of Light, and we have heavenly help to guide and comfort us, bringing gifts of courage and strength to endure the trials.
In looking back, this uplifting artwork was in a Bible lesson notebook at my mother's house. A Christian live-in couple spent months at Mom's providing loving health care for my sweet step-father during his transition from this world.  
Years later, while I was living at Mom's, the notebook popped up while I was cleaning out a nightstand drawer.  Curiously, leafing through the collection of artwork, the heavenly scroll,  "Be not anxious for tomorrow" was the angel message I needed.  At the time I was at a major cross-roads in my late thirties. I'd let go of everything society told me I needed to be happy, and with a leap of faith started a new chapter in life by listening within or going without.   For the first time ever, I was navigating through uncharted waters.  For more than twenty years, my work with the federal government was steeped in rules and  regulations. The divine edict. "Be not anxious for tomorrow" made a lasting impression.   God doesn't want us to live in a constant state of anxiety, we serve a loving God and can release all of our burdens and cares to Him in faith knowing our circumstances will be used for good growth.  

Throughout the years, those powerful words proved to be true.  "Be not anxious for tomorrow." Adversity would come, but peace would prevail and I grew within under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the angels.  Then twenty years later, at a time when my eyesight was temporarily failing, I was surprised by a sudden image in my mind's eye. The floral victory wreath.  The radiant Hand of God handing down the official document.  "Be not anxious for tomorrow."   
A reminder to keep having faith...more is going on than meets the physical eye.
Be not anxious. Rest in the peaceful assurance that the same Spirit of Truth that raised Christ from the dead dwells within you, and will quicken your flesh. All that is needed is a little willingness. The challenge always is to try and lean on our own understanding.  By letting go of anxiety and trusting God, not only will we come up higher, but the world will be blessed with more Light and love. 
For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Psalm 91:11-12      

Love and peace,
