There will be seemingly hopeless moments in life. Jesus is a closer Friend than darkness. He knows what you're going through and understands.
Just like the rosebush was freed to thrive, we are truly freed by the Lord's loving but firm hand. Growing wild or free? What is your choice?
I love to serve and be available for God, but over the past few years, there have been some necessary changes due to my illnesses. It frustrates me that what I am now able to offer seems like just a tiny raindrop. But I’ve come to see that our tiny raindrops of service can be like a crashing waterfall to God.
Waiting on the Lord should be an active decision of putting our trust in Him. In the waiting, then, we simply continue to live. We continue to create. We continue to love. We continue to learn and grow and do.
