Dearest Brothers & Sisters,
may you overflow with HOPE!!
All of a sudden I noticed a small bird (wren?) on the potted plant (Rose of Sharon) outside my bedroom window a few minutes ago. It was hopping from branch to branch and even hopping on the window sill. This was atypical behavior and I grabbed my iPhone and was drawn closer to take a photo.
As I drew closer to the window, I saw what was drawing the attention of the wren — a snake slithering up the side of the brick by the window!! I then noticed my cardinals flying closer…perching on a nearby plant trellis.
It was interesting to me that the snake drew their attention and they came closer. Why? Was it because my back patio is where they get their food and they were ready to defend it if the snake encroached on their place of sustenance?
One thing is for sure, my feathered friends noticed something was where it shouldn’t have been. Something that they weren’t letting out of their sight!
I pray that we are as vigilant in our being Watchmen over our families, churches, and communities. May we see any encroaching danger and give the alarm and take a stand against it!!
God be with you today as you allow the Lord to use you to defend His territory!!
And as usual at my house: Thunderstorm=power going out!
I’m so thankful that when I have spiritual “storms” in my life…the POWER of the Holy Spirit never leaves or “goes out!!” We have the Power of God continuing to work in and through us even during the storms!!
This morning as I was writing another post on my Facebook page, I began to have such a sense of a “building up” in the atmosphere! Brothers & Sisters! God is moving…God is strengthening His people for what’s coming! We ARE the body of Christ!
[vision]. I see a weightlifter 🏋️. The Lord is strengthening us to lift and carry the “weight” of His glory and presence into all the world! We are in “training!” We have our own “personal Trainer!” Lean in and listen and obey the voice of the Lord!!
