What Am I Really Seeking First

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Matthew 6:33

I’ve been trying so hard to live by this scripture, especially as we prepare for full time RV life in a year and a half. But I have struggled and failed over the past couple of weeks. Instead of leaning on God to provide, I have been frantically trying to figure out how we’re going to afford the RV we want. Then struggling over trying to decide what RV we want. I have to get back to trusting Him. He already has this figured out. I just need to keep putting one foot in front of the other as I follow Him.

Seeking the Kingdom First

Matthew 6:33 teaches us to seek God first, and all “these things” shall be added to us. I used to think of this verse in terms of literal things. And maybe sometimes it is about physical items. Lately, however, for me it’s more about peace and joy and just being in the moment without worrying about what comes next. Such a hard thing for me to do, but I find that as I truly seek God and surrender, He is teaching me how to live in that space.
