But seek first...

"But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." 
{Matthew 6:33}

Because He ought to engross us entirely.

Our desires, cares, questions, doubts, plans they fall into place in the light of His glory. And the thing is they not only "fall" into place, they are ADDED to us out of the goodness and free extravagant love of the sweet Lord, and without our thought or care. Us girls, we're funny. We think we have to think thoughts towards something constantly for it to reach a solution. And that we do, we think it into the ground, or 'til it resembles the like of a bowl of spaghetti in our head, which then directly affects our heart. Then there we have, chaos and confusion - that started and ended with us, alone. 

Goodness how beautiful it is when the Lord blesses us by telling us exactly what we need to hear through someone else. and right when we need it. My sweet sister friend told me this wonderful example of the Lord and His timing today. She described to me this illustration of a play and God as the director. She went on to say how we are sitting in the audience and thinking we know exactly how the play is going to and pan out, but the curtain is still closed. However, behind the curtain the Lord is carefully and meticulously putting things into place, working things out in our heart, and very deliberately planning His timing of scenes. And at just the right time... He will open the curtain.

If we seek first His kingdom, our heart will be aligned with Him, and what His is about. Everything else will give way to this.

Sometimes we need to just get alone with our Maker. Worship Him. Tell Him who He is. And Receive what He has for us. Trusting, Knowing, and Declaring He is good. He is holy. He is enough.
