One Piece At a Time

Read Luke 12:22-34 - Don't worry


"So don't be anxious about tomorrow. God will take care of your tomorrow too. Live one day at a time."

Matthew 6:34 (TLB)


Elizabeth Erlandson, from Nebraska, and her husband have enjoyed working on a jigsaw puzzle. At first it was fun, but the enjoyment wore off when they got to a part of the puzzle where all the pieces were shades of green. Needing help, Elizabeth joined an online puzzle group and asked for suggestions. The most helpful advice was: "One piece at a time." Elizabeth has taken this advice to heart. With patience and persistence, they will complete the puzzle one piece at a time.

This got Elizabeth thinking about how God gives us one day at a time. No matter how much we plan for or fret about the future, we only have what God has given us today. In today's reading, Jesus reminds us that being anxious over the future does us no good. We can't add a single hour to our life.

We worry about finances, health, loved ones, and relationships. But regardless of what may be disturbing us, it is important to focus on God's loving and mighty power. We can rest in God and fix our eyes on the One who made the world. God has a grand design for creation, and God knows exactly where you and Elizabeth, and I, fit in.


Prayer: Heavenly Father, help us to trust you even when we can't understand how our circumstances fit into your bigger picture, in Jesus' name. Amen.
