"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33
THINGS. Our world is all about the pursuit of things. This verse seems to suggest that we can definitely have all these things, but the way to get them is to seek the kingdom of God.
The truth is, things will never make you happy or fulfilled. Only God can do that. If you're truly seeking God, you'll find that all you really want is more of Him.
PRAYER FOR THE DAY
"Heavenly Father, I kneel before you today in awe of who you are. Thank you for the gift of this moment, where nothing matters, except your presence. Thank you for loving me, even though I certainly don't deserve it. I pray that you would calm my spirit today, and guide my thoughts and actions according to your purpose. I trust you completely with everything going on in my life, and I ask you to remove every ounce of fear and worry. You are God, and you are good, and I love you. Amen."
