“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord...
- Jeremiah 29: 11-14aWe never know who we will come across in our daily lives.
There is always a lesson or two (or more) to learn when interacting with creation.
Whether that creation is in the form of another human being, listening or watching the birds early in the morning, or spying on an ant as it makes its way along what may seem to it the grand expanse of your driveway.
Having met a young person this morning, our conversation eventually revealed the purpose and timing which God had brought us together.
Time and time again, all events in my life are validated with a good purpose; a greater reason than I initially perceive.
We who are called are blessed to participate in the divine nature, and we are blessed to have our hand to the plow in planting, or watering.
In due time, either watching His work grow in the hearts of those we come across, or realizing the good work He does in ourselves.
We were each made to reflect His Presence, to love one another as dearly beloved children of His, and to help and assist one another as we all traverse this experience called “life”.
May His Name be forever praised!
May you who reads this be forever blessed and found in His immeasurable grace!
The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. And He is the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything He might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through His blood, shed on the cross.
- Colossians 1: 15-20
