I've been struggling lately as to how to deal with my frustrations and concerns that I see all around me in this nation. More and more, I'm feeling that my ranting is a waste of time and energy and just gets me mad.

I have to go back to the basic and original reason that the name of my blog is "In God We Trust" and my blogger name is "Lily".

My blog journey began because I needed an outlet for my frustrations. My peace only comes from the fact that I know God is sovereign and while everything looks out of control, He really has it all in the palm of His hand. Therefore, I can trust in God that He has this nation and world in His hands and has His perfect divine plan for it - and even He promises in His word will have its difficulty and strife. And He is trustworthy to follow through on His promises.

My blog name, Lily, comes from the passages in Matthew 6: 25-34
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life[b]?
28"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Therefore, the tone of my blog will change, but I think I'll be back more often.....because it's not that I don't still have things on my mind! So my blog name is based on verse 28 and my new attitude and approach will come from verse 33.
