In a world filled with stress, sometimes it’s hard to stop and admire God’s workmanship. As Sadie, (my dachshund), & I enjoyed our Saturday outside; many of my little birds Paid is a visit. Eating from the feeders hung nicely on the fence; the perched them not phased my our presence. Some chipped, some coo’ed, and some whistled. They did not seemed stressed out or afraid. As I sat on the porch, I was reminded of a verse in Matthew 6:25-26.
God cares for the birds of the air and every living thing. He cares for the grass, the deer, and other creatures unknown. They do not worry if they have a home, food, or water. They know the maker of heaven will provide.
In the parable Jesus spoke, it finally dawned on me. In order to fly freely, one must give their cares to the one who can carry the load. God knows our troubles, trails, wants, and needs. He knows what worries us, keeps us up at night, our fears, and our hurts. And just like the birds; He promises to care for us.
Are we greater than the birds? Yes. God loves all of his creations ; but he loves us more. That is why he died for us. You see we must give our all to God. Our hurts, our tears, our futures, our dreams, and our everything. We can not do anything without God. If that was true the Philippians 4:13 would not be needed, but Instead its States:
“I can do ALL things through CHRIST who strengthens me.”
It doesn’t say, “through my boss”, “Through my pastor”, and so on- but through Christ.
So as I sit and enjoy this wonderful weather, listening to my doves coo, and others flock to the feeders. I too sit as the birds do. Waiting to be told where I may fly to next. Where’s my next journey and what may it involve; but wherever it is- I will not be worried. God will make a way. He is the ” Way Maker. ” I don’t know if my wings will work, I don’t know how to soar, but with God as my guide- I will be unstoppable.
Cast your cares upon him, be free of your stress, and listen to the birds today. If he can care for them- he can take care of you.

Hey & welcome to my blog!
A little about me:
I am Marli Wright. I am the writer of Just Being Marli. I am also the owner of Marli Visuals as well. I am from a small town in Southeastern Oklahoma. I am not a fancy writer by no means, but if you understand it than its a God thing.
A little about this page:
Just Being Marli was created by me for many reasons. It all started on Instagram where I hashtaged #JustBeingMarli with photos of me or quotes that I had written. Many people started to comment on it loving the idea.
A little about this blog:
This blog is to inspire people. I and literally, "Just Being Marli.". God created me to be me. He has plans for me, and I believe this is one of them. I feel like I am called to write each post and that is what I strive to do. I am a Christian and I do fail often. This blog is just a place where I come to write verses and thoughts that have helped me understand God better. I do not have all the answers & I won't act like I do. However if you have any questions; please ask. If I don't know the answer I will try and find it for you.
What causes me to write:
June of 2017 I became a mom to a wonderful baby boy Rhett. In 13 hours I learned about love, grief, life, & death. After having to give my son back to God, my faith was tested. I write because I know hurt. I write because I know others know this pain and I want to bring hope. I also write, because I feel God has made me to do so. Most of all, because my son loved and that’s all he knew. Love. Pure innocence love. And he know is whole and healthy in heaven. I want to share that innocence God felt love with others through writing. That is what inspires me most.
In 2019 God gave us a beautiful Rainbow baby girl, we named Selah. God showed us his promises are true and he never breaks them. He showed me how to have joy and hope again. And because of Gods love and grace; I have two beautiful babies.
This blog may have started as a hashtag, but now it has meaning that is deeper than even I imagined.
