Devotional - Sunday, May 7, 2017 127/238

Today's Scripture:"Then, at this saying, Moses fled and became a dweller in the land of Midian, where he had two sons." Acts 7:29

5783. Life is in the roots. JG


See it.

On with it

Live it.

"Just how long does a hummingbird live?" My wife was noting the fact we do not have our hummers back for the season. To me what she asked was rhetorical, because she knows far more about the thumb-sized birds than I do. They say they come back to the same place each year after flying as far as 1,500 miles south. Of course I have no way to be sure, but there has to be a reason for the absent birds. My first thought was that our little visitors were dead and my second was wondering if we would find new friends.

I should have anticipated the devotional Scripture when I read the news paper headline "Why I read the obituaries." Moses thought his life among his own people was over so he began a new one far away with the Midianites. He became a shepherd, fell in love, married and started a family, but his roots were already established as a leader of God's people. One might say it's easy to give up on what seems impossible, but God has a way of turning the unlikely into the probable.

Pray it.

Thank You, God, for not discarding me when I tried to run from You.
