Today's Scripture: "So, when He heard that he was sick, He stayed two more days in the place where He was." Jn 11:6

5953. Sometimes less is more. JG


See it.

Right time

Live it.

Everyone wants to go to heaven but I doubt they want to go right now. Today is a new day with new opportunities and things to do. But we can rest assured when God says it's time, He won't ask if we're ready. It's the same way with plans. A friend says, "Man plans, God laughs." He is so true. Any planning we do is based on what we want and not normally based on what God wants.

When the workers showed up to do concrete work at the house, I went to greet them and the owner/foreman was picking up sizable dog poop on the asphalt outside the passenger door of his truck. The source of that huge deposit was a puppy that had feet the size of Godzilla's. Her skin was in folds and waiting to stretch over a pit-bull that would weigh at least 150 pounds. But as a puppy with innocent, sky-blue eyes and gray and white hair, she was the cutest thing you can imagine. Cuteness, however, didn't stop her from depositing another poop pile outside our back door which the foreman had to clean up. I guess he will have to live with stink she delivers until she grows and has a liter of more "sweetness" to clean up.

Pray it.

My greatest anticipation is seeing what You, the God of the universe, want to show me.
