Real romance, real faith!

God provides

Psalm 127:2 – God provides for us

Image of lake on a misty morning with Bible verse Psalm 127:2, from inspirational romance author Autumn Macarthur
It is pointless to get up early,
work hard, and go to bed late
Anxiously laboring for food to eat;
for God provides for those He loves, even while they are sleeping.

When I read this verse, it felt as if a weight of pressure and struggle lifted from me.

Not that it’s permission to be lazy. Most of us live our lives the opposite of lazy.

It’s much-needed permission to stop trying so hard and stop feeling guilty when we have to rest. It’s permission to rest in God, trusting that He’s got it.

We still do the work, but that frantic stress and strain and sense of failing to do enough we far too often feel is gone.

We can breathe again.

Ahhhh. That feels good.

[Tweet “We can stop working so hard, and try resting in God, trusting that He will provide.”]
