Devotional - Sunday, September 24, 2017 267/98

Today's Scripture: "As the prophet says: Heaven is My throne, And earth is My footstool. What house will you build for Me? says the Lord, or what is the place of My rest?" Acts 7:49

See it.

A league far away

Live it.

Plans for our backyard required extension of our patio surface and a team of two were hired to do the work. Now, weeks after the start of work, it is not finished and may not be at all. You may ask why this happened and the answer is simple. You never pay someone for something they haven't done, or the problem becomes you and not them. So another pretty weekend and another excuse and now time has expired. I shall call the project "a unfinished completion" and will make the best of where they quit. I may call their work "Babel," as a monument to futility.

Pray it.

Thank You, God, for using my success and failure as a teaching lesson.
