Hello everyone...and a "Happy Sunday" to you! I hope that your day is starting out to be a blessed day!
What a beautiful morning the Lord hath made! The sun is sending shadows of trees across the yard and birds are fluttering everywhere...enjoying the blessings of food and cool water. What faith they must have...to fly into the yard...not knowing what will be there for them...but yet, when they do find what they are looking for; they never seem to forget to sing and praise their maker.
You know...as I'm sitting here this morning...I'm thinking that if we could only be like these birds and anticipate God's best, rather than expecting the worst; then maybe we would find what we are longing for at the moment. How many times do we base God's blessings on what is happening at the time. In other words...are we only expecting the good to happen, when everything is going well? The greatest faith we could ever experience; is when we see nothing before us; but yet we believe that it will happen...and that God will never allow us to fall deeper into these moments of despair.
No matter what we face...and no matter how difficult life can seem...don't get caught up in the symptoms of these moments; for they will only bring you further down into despair. Instead...rise high above these moments...with a faith that can lift you up, to where God is...a place, where He can truly make all things new! Amen!
