The Storehouse of God

I am a news & weather junkie...really! I feel a need to watch our local news once a day and HAVE to watch the weather forecast before I go to bed! Is that an addiction?

I feel as a Mom that I need to know how my girls need to dress tomorrow, according to the weather! However, I do realize that watching the weather doesn't always mean I'm going to let them go out dressed appropriately for the day.

I am always amazed, though, to see how often the forecast changes from day to day in the 7 day period. I'm not sure why I get surprised, it is only a forecast!

A while back, life got really busy. I mean so busy that I didn't have time to catch the news or weather for a couple of days in a row. This was one of those times when the forecast changed tremendously within that couple of days!!!

I watched the weather forecast one evening and the weatherman called for only a chance of showers over the weekend....a 10% coverage! 10%! That's not much chance of rain! I took notice but didn't figure we would get much, if any, rain for the upcoming weekend!

Boy, was I wrong! I missed the weather forecast for two days, and lo and behold, it seriously changed - to 70% chance! I will have to say, though, it was really cool to lay there in the middle of the night and hear the unexpected rain gently fall to the ground!

It reminded me of the scripture in Job 38:25-28....
25.Who cuts a waterway for the heavy rains and sets a path for the thunderstorm?
26.Who waters the land where no one lives, the desert that has no one in it?
27.Who sends rain to satisfy the empty land so the grass begins to grow?
28.Does the rain have a father? Who is father to the drops of dew?


I love that my God is in control, even of the rain! I am once again reminded that we are mere humans and that He sends the rain to satisfy the land and allow the grass to grow!

I hope He is sending rain your way this spring, to water the earth and your life!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow....like rain!

“We don’t allow children”

Seriously?  That is what I was told when I started strolling Bambina into a local upscale resale shop earlier today!  I walked out of there thinking, “Then you don’t allow my money, either.”  I’m not sure that I can say I will NEVER visit this store, but it will be many years before I am even tempted to…and by then, they will probably be out of business!

Contrast that with Jesus attitude toward the children in Matthew:

Matthew 18:2-5 says  
    • 2.He called a little child and had him stand among them.  3.And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5. “And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.

Then, when we got together with CD afterward, she asked if I had read her latest blog post on childlike faith!  I thought how much that is like God to gently remind me that even though, for just a moment, I was angry with a worldview, His view is so much higher than mine – and the world’s!

 

Not only is Bambina accepted by Christ, when I humble myself and approach His throne, I am fully accepted there!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow….like acceptance!

A change of perspective

I'm not sure if that is an appropriate title but I know there has been a change somewhere! I really felt led to limit my computer time over the Easter holiday but I could not have told you too much about it, specifically. However, I noticed in those few days off that I spent more time with my husband and children...and face to face relationships are most important!

So, I'm still learning exactly what this means for me, less computer time. Less Twitter. Less Facebook. Less Tumblebugs!

With Bambina, I still don't have opportunity to phone, or write, but I know that God's desire is for me to have real relationships...not just on the surface.

As you can see, I'm trying to figure out just what this means for me...but I'm still searching. The good thing, though, is that God is in the search and that is the way He likes it and the way I want it to be!

Thank you for hanging with me through this journey. I pray that God will be glorified and that this truly will work for my good and His glory! Rom 8:28

Praise God from whom all blessings flow...like my bloggy friends!
