Speaking Of Life 3032 | Watching and Waiting

Have you ever noticed how waiters in fine restaurants observe their customers with detail to make sure they have the best experience? A lot of us don’t observe other people like it unless it’s a part of our job. David reminds us in Psalms that our loving Father cares about the details of our everyday lives. If we take the time to pay attention we see that he is working in and around us for our good!

Speaking Of Life 3031 | Stopping Where Jesus Stops

We are constantly inundated with notifications and messaging from the world around us.. From our phones to LED billboards, from our smart TVs to our social media platforms, we are constantly distracted. Comparable to what happened in Mark 5, we see that Jesus stops to notice and care for the sick woman amidst the chaotic crowd. Let us follow Jesus’ example and take time to notice those who are lost and sick and love the ones who are hurting.

Speaking Of Life 3029 | The Cutting Takes Root

Gardening takes a lot of time, dedication, and patience. Like the care that it takes for a gardener to replant and grow a mighty cedar tree, Ezekiel reminds us that God himself nurtures us and prunes us for our own good. He walks with us through our journey in life and includes us to participate in the advancement of his kingdom.

Our gadgets can fail us. But one thing is for sure. Our relationship with God will always be there even if everything else fails.
