"Then the Jews answered and said to Him, 'Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan and have a demon?'" Jn 8:48

5574. What could have been always seems better than what is. JG


See it.


Live it.

You'd never know it by looking at our front yard today, but a week ago it had three tall trees standing in the yard growing too close to the house. Two were overhanging the house and getting worse each season. A Sycamore tree was diseased and leaning toward the street where cars are often parked. Today, they are no longer a threat to the house, cars or people. Their absence, however, is conspicuous and has left us with other issues. For instance, the ground is bare and although stumps were ground down, little unwanted trees will inevitably shoot up through the ground and need to be monitored and cut back.

I should have known that new people I don't know, not everyone is going to understand me much less agree with me on spiritual matters. Since there's been no one interested in intercession, I can hardly expect anyone willing to go make disciples with me. Don't think I'm disappointed or discouraged. I'm not. I remind myself that it is not my job to look for anyone or anything as Jehovah Jireh always provides what I need when I need it to do what He called me to do. Moral: In life there will be trees, roots and weeds. Deal with it, then move on.

Pray it.

Help me, God to keep my thoughts on things that matter. Other people can argue and defend themselves.
