Take time to ponder the snow and how it may bring a clearer understanding of who Jesus Christ is to you. Allow this simple ‘object lesson’ to be one that you store away in your heart so that you can be reminded, every time it snows, of the grace and mercy of God, the power in the blood of Christ and the absolute perfection of our Savior!
How often do you get up out of bed and head off into your day without protection from the unknown and the attacks of the enemy. Ephesians 6:10-18 encourages us to be prepared and put on the Armor of God
I have always likened a gentle breeze and a wind gust to the Holy Spirit. I think of it as the ever-present God that we serve. I find it refreshing, renewing and an instant reminder that He is right there… at that very moment.
Are you on that part of your journey to the cross where things are just out of control? Are you feeling less and less able to control circumstances and situations. If so, praise God. He loves you way too much to leave you the way that you are.
The pain is great, the all-consuming fear, hurt, worry is very real and very fluid. It moves in and out, like a dense fog, with the wind and is eager to meet us immediately upon waking every morning.
Do you ever feel that you are somewhere between Genesis chapters 37 and 40. In the midst of circumstances that you can’t believe and would not have chosen for yourself? Is God allowing circumstances to knead you, mold you, make you into a vessel worthy of a great commission?
One of the struggles that I have is exactly how much space God needs to work. What I mean by this is how much abiding is necessary? What’s the line between His will for my life and my will for my life? If a prayer isn’t answered, is it because it just not time, or is the answer ‘no’? Or was it my will and not His?
