The Plant Outside

It’s been just over a year since our world was turned upside down by this pandemic! I recently heard, “we’re all in the same river, but in different boats.” We’ve all experienced lockdown and COVID19 in different ways.

Here’s a question: How have you experienced God?

There’s a plant on my stoep. Throughout the seasons, it changes – new shoots have, some flowers, and then in the winter, bare. The plant is still there and still alive – surviving all seasons and conditions.

God cares for that plant, He cares even more for you and me.
We’ve been battered.
But we’re still here.

Hebrews 13:5 (https://bit.ly/2A82aZM)

So will I

Stargazing is something I try to do as often as possible and whenever I do I can’t help but sing “So will I” by Hillsong. Nature in itself moves me to worship Christ, because our powerful and creative God, created something so beautiful.

In the same way He created the heavens and the earth, He created you and me.
Revelation 4:11 (https://bit.ly/31RLYaf) says that God is pleased with everything He created, us humans included.

Today or in the coming week, spend some time in nature. And remember that what you see around you is as beautiful and mind blowing as the person God created you to be.

Family vibes

We don’t always have the best people in our lives. We don’t always have a great example of loving parents or family. So, it can be hard to understand the love of God and how He sees us when we don’t feel it from the people around us.

If you find yourself here, I want you to know that God sees you. He calls you friend, son, daughter. An heir through Jesus. He sees us a family, as his most prized possession. I pray these verses would encourage your heart today.

HEARING

Why don’t I hear God speak?

Psalm 86:6-7 (https://bit.ly/3guGsCR) tells us God hears and answers our prayers, but we struggle to hear Him. Often this is because we have our say, but don’t take time to listen to Him. We are so busy living our lives, that we don’t see His answers to our prayers.

To hear God, we need to open our eyes to what God is doing around us. We need to quieten our hearts and take time to reflect, so that we can hear Him give us clarity and wisdom.

Lord, help me to slow down and make time to be still and hear what you are saying.
