The sun is shining and temperatures are going up and it reminds me SPRING IS COMING! I really like the change of seasons, all of them. I’m almost always ready for the next season when it gets here. It is a physical reminder of those “new mercies” God shares with us each and every day. I love it!
I’m working on memorizing my favorite (okay, in reality I have lots of favorite verses and songs) passages of scripture. Ephesians 3:16-21 Verse 16 starts I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you…(emphasis mine). There is just so much there. But to me the first challenge is do I pray realizing that it is out of God’s glorious riches the answers will come? Or do I pray like I have to figure out the answer, do the work and then get the answer? It’s not me. I don’t have the strength, the patience, the wisdom or the ability to figure out anything. BUT, my God does and I’m really trying to remember that and live like that.
And did you notice that the riches are not only his, but they are “glorious”. Pay attention to all the adjectives in scripture. God’s riches are not skimpy or bland. They are GLORIOUS.
We have some new challenges in our life, but then don’t we all? So this time, I’m praying from the start, believing that the God who sent His son to save me can handle our day to day lives too.
