hakuna matata

Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Matata! Ain’t no passing craze
It means no worries for the rest of your days
It’s our problem-free philosophy Hakuna Matata!  – Lion King

Catchy song, don’t you think?

What if we would really, I mean really, believe that and live it?  No worries!
Has it become just a wonderful phrase to make us feel good?

Long before the Lion King, the King of kings presented the same ‘phrase’ to us, his disciples.  Don’t worry!

If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met. Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes. – Matthew 6:33-34 (MSG)

I tend to fuss over the way God works, even though I know God and how He works.

Who?  What?  Where?  When?  Why?  How?
Ever ask these questions?
Ever ‘wonder’ about tomorrow, or two days away, or next week, or next month, or next year?

God-reality
God-initiative
God-provisions

Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow.

What is He doing in your life today?
What is He trying to teach you?  Are you listening, and willing to learn?

What good does it do to worry about tomorrow?  Today has enough trouble of it’s own.

What if we really did believe this – made this a part of our living and breathing?
How would our lives change?
How would our lives be different?

Have faith…God does know what He is doing.
Maybe we just need to “look beyond what we can see.” – Lion King

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. – Hebrews 11:1 (NLT)

grace.
