LOC Faith Art Friday Do Not be Anxious

I am honoured to be hosting this weeks Faith Art Friday at Layers of Color - this is such a special day of the week for me and one I look forward to it. Different members of the Design Team get to share from the heart and we get to be inspired on many levels!

 Do not be anxious for your soul, what you eat and what you drink,
nor for your body, what you put on.
 Is not the soul more than the food and the body than the clothing? 

Observe the birds of the heaven, that they do not sow,
 nor do they reap, nor do they gather into barns,
yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
 Do you not rather excel them?
But who of you by being anxious is able to add one cubit onto his stature?

And why are you anxious about clothing?
Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow.
They do not labor nor do they spin, 
but I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory
 was clothed as one of these.

If God so enrobes the grass of the field
 (which is today, and is thrown into a furnace tomorrow)
will He not much rather you, little-faiths?
Then do not be anxious, saying, What may we eat?
 Or, what may we drink? Or, what may clothe us?

For after all these things the nations seek.
 For your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things.
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,
and all these things will be added to you.
Then do not be anxious for tomorrow.
 For the morrow will be anxious of itself. Sufficient to each day is its own trouble.
Mark 6:25-34
