Worried About Today and Tomorrow?

“You drove 30 minutes away to get food? You couldn’t find eggs? I have plenty; I can share. Do you have toilet paper, enough cleaning supplies, enough food; are you stocked up?”

My daughter and I have never talked about trouble finding eggs and sharing what we have with each other. We’ve never asked each other if she had toilet paper, cleaning supplies, and food. But that was our conversation this afternoon.

Last week’s trips to the grocery store were shocking. This is not the cleanser or toilet paper aisle, this is the pasta, canned food, and staples aisle.

Prayer is Powerful – Pray for Our World!

When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among my people, If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Light in the Garden … God’s First Promise

Bless the LORD, O my soul! O LORD my God, you are very great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty,
covering yourself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a tent.
Psalm 104:1-2

God’s clothing is majestic and filled with splendor, like a garment of light. Imagine the sight of God walking in the Garden of Eden.

Imagine seeing God in all His majesty and splendor.

Like Isaiah, we might fall to the ground and proclaim “Woe is me!” (Isaiah 6: 5)

But Adam and Eve walked and talked with God in the cool of the evening.
