OFTEN WHEN I FIND MYSELF feeling upset or disappointed about something going on in my life, I am reminded of these words from Christ Jesus: "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matt. 6:33 ). Elsewhere, Jesus expresses a similar idea, saying, "Your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him" (Matt. 6:8 ).

It's easy to feel comfortable leaving small issues "in God's hands." For the bigger things, however, I have tended to attempt a more "thanks God, but I got it" approach.
