2 Samuel 14:14
All of us must die eventually. Our lives are like water spilled out on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again. But God does not just sweep life away; instead, he devises ways to bring us back when we have been separated from him.
This is our first year to have honey bees and really our first year to have black berries. The plants are 2nd year plants but they produce on 2nd year growth. And boy are they producing. And boy are our honey bees loving them! In fact I believe that the plants are doing better because we have the bees on the property. It’s truly amazing. Those little bees work their hearts out, LITERALLY! They work themselves to death. They have a very short life span and they rotate jobs and work, work and work just to please their Queen. It’s simply amazing how God orchestrated every fine detail of every creature. Even us humans!
Now us humans! We don’t follow direction so easily. We don’t know our duties, our tasks and follow the marching order until the job is done simply to please our God! Although we should! So God is constantly working in our lives, usually in the back ground orchestrating things, devising ways to bring us back to him when we have separated our selves from him. So unlike the Queen bee that sits back and buzzes out orders, God is working, working out the fine details of our lives. Devising ways to bring us back to him. Because eventually, eventually we all must die and when we do, He wants us next to Him for eternity.
Lord, thank you! Thank You for caring enough to devise ways to bring us back to you. And how many millions of ways have you must have devised. I am so grateful! Please help me Lord stay on path. Help me Lord seek out Your word, acknowledging my weaknesses, changing my ways, growing in wisdom and ever looking to know more. Help me, teach me, change me! Please be with my family and friends Lord. It’s so hard to recognize and be willing to change the areas in our lives that are not mirroring Your image. I pray that You are able to help them with that. It’s hard Lord but so worth the peace that comes within knowing that the Holy Spirit is leading. Amen!
