Some section hands on a British railroad found a thrush’s nest under a rail. Peacefully sitting on her eggs, the hen was undisturbed by the roar of the fast trains above and around her. Someone has written a little verse which goes:

“Said the robin to the sparrow, 
‘I should really like to know,
Why these anxious human beings 
Rush about and worry so.’ 
Said the sparrow to the robin, 
‘Friend, I think that it must be, 
That they have no heavenly Father 
Such as cares for you and me.’”

Jesus used the carefree attitude of the birds to underscore the fact that worrying is unnatural. I am learning in my own life, day by day, to keep my mind centered on Christ, and the worries and anxieties and concerns of the world pass, and nothing but “perfect peace” is left in the human heart. God has taken the responsibility for our care and worry.

Daily Prayer

Lord Jesus, I’m happiest when I’m fully trusting You. This day help me to be constantly grateful for Your care and faithfulness

//World Changing Response//This verse speaks about what God did as the egyptians drove their chariots in the split waters as Moses led God’s people. HE CLOGGED THEIR WHEELS. When you attend to the things of God , He will attend to you! 

Exodus 14:24
And in the morning watch the Lord in the pillar of fire and of cloud looked down on the Egyptian forces and threw the Egyptian forces into panic, clogging their chariot wheels so that they drove heavily. AND THE EGYPTIANS SAID ” Let us flee from before Israel, for the Lord fights for them against the Egytians “


Certain relationships in life require from the parties involved only moderate degrees of devotion. A certain degree of reserve and distance seems to be suitable in such relations as these. But there are other relationships in life where all this is changed when friendship becomes love. Two hearts give themselves to each other to be no longer two, but one. Instead of being separated, their interest and paths are now together. The reserve and the distance suitable to mere friendships is fatal in real love. Love gives all and must have all in return. The wishes of the other party become binding obligations; and the deepest desire of each heart is to know every secret wish and longing of the other, in order that it may do all in its power to gratify those desires. Is that the kind of love, affection, and obedience you have for Christ?

Ephesians 6:24 KJV

Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity.

Daily Prayer

Jesus, I say I love You and yet so often it is a selfish, “taking” love. Let me love You in such a way that Your desires will be mine

Heard a new song called “Buried in the grave”

By All Songs & Daughters and the message in it encouraged me. It talks about the saturday in between the friday and the sunday Jesus rose from the grave. No body talks about this specific saturday really. Imagine all the hope Jesus brought to his people and his disciples, all the peace, wisdom and clarity to life as they walked with Him. Then all of a sudden Jesus was crucified on the cross. The song speaks about what His people probably felt during this entire day. Where would they go, what would they do? All they had was a “promise like a thread, holding them, keeping them from fraying at the edge” That promise was that He’d come back. But until He did, they had to wait.

We all have those moments, like myself, I am waiting. Waiting for Jesus, waiting for my husband, waiting for so many things promised. But Just like his disciples held on to that promise, its what kept them together during the wait. And what you learn in between is the most important because it will be what will keep you together and what will allow you to grow before you get the promise. Jesus said He’d be back and that sunday HE ROSE.

"All we knew, all we knew
is you said you’d come again
You’d rise, you’d rise up from the dead

There was a day we looked for proof
That you had risen from the tomb
And all our doubts began to roll away

We touched the scars upon your hands
You kept your word, Son of Man
You buried death by taking on the grave

You came here to save us
'Cause everything was lost
No longer empty handed
Clinging to the cross”

Everything He says comes to life, all we have to do is find the peace we need within HIM as we wait to get our promises. Its a beautiful thing.

Currently learning, currently waiting and falling more in love with His ways,
