They appeared mysteriously, out of no where.  It is a dry, unkept hillside along our driveway.  Mostly has the appearance of weeds and debris that needs to be cleaned up once in a while.  It's one of those areas that would demand a much younger me to really capture it and renovate it into an eye attractive area.

The first spring we were here at our current location, I was greeted one moring by the first single Primrose.  I was caught off guard as I had no idea such beauty could be waiting on that unkept hillside. 

Until we allow God to do a work in our lives, we too are like that "barren" hillside, waiting to bloom in beauty that only He can deliver in our lives.

God's Word Speaks

by Lisha Hunnicutt

“Jack left,” wept Alison. “He wants a divorce. What am I going to do?”

“I don’t know, but I know someone who does,” said Kate slipping a Pocket Testament into Alison’s hands. “This book has answers.”

Late at night, Alison opened the book. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  She continued on. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. “Life,” she thought. “Mine’s going nowhere.” Into the night she read, weeping as the words of Jesus pierced her heart. “Such love,” she thought as her knees hit the carpet. “Jesus,” she wept. “Please forgive me. My life and marriage is in shambles. I give it all to you.”

Two weeks later, Alison and Jack sat across from each other working out the finer points of their divorce. “Something’s different about you,” said Jack. “I can’t put my finger on it. You seem so, joyful. Have you met someone?”

“Yes I have” she smiled.  She reached into her purse, pulling out a slightly worn Pocket Testament. “Here,” she said, “You can read about him.” Jack looked at her quizzically, slipping the book into his brief case.

Saturday, while Sawyer ran around the playground, Jack began to read. “In the beginning was the word…” He read more after tucking Sawyer into bed and again after dropping him off at Alison’s on Sunday. Monday night, he lay on the sofa thinking about his life. “God, help me know if you’re real. Alison has changed. I want what she has.” A peace like none he’d ever felt filled his soul.

A year later, Alison and Jack renewed their vows. Morgan pulled Jack aside. “Wow man! I never thought I’d see this! How did you win her back?”

“You really want to know?” asked Jack.

“Yeah, I really want to know.”

“Here,” said Jack. “Read this.” He slipped a well-worn Pocket Testament into Morgan’s hand.

A couple days later, Morgan suffered from another hangover. “Man, I feel like I’ve been hit by a Mac truck.” The book that Jack gave him sat on the coffee table. He picked it up. “In the beginning was the word…” It took a few days, but Morgan read the entire book, pondering its message. He knelt by the couch, “Jesus,” he prayed. “I’m not big on words, but I need something.”

A few weeks later, Morgan ran into an old friend. “Yo dude! Where you been? The guys at The Hound have been asking about you.”

Morgan answered. “Let’s just say I have better things to do.”

“Like what?”

“Here, read this,” said Morgan handing his friend a PocketTestament held together by duct tape.

“This will tell you all you need to know.”

One Pocket Testament, three redemptions, and counting.

God's sweet Word

I've been dwelling and meditating on a verse from Psalm 143:8 :

Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness
in the morning.
For in You do I trust

Cause me to know the way
in which I should walk
For I lift up my soul to You

God's faithful love for His
unfaithful people

So, how do I hear His lovingkindness?

When I really started pondering this in my heart I was humbled. To think that even as I was doing my own thing and not considering His love toward me, He was still loving me.  He was still calling out to me. 

I "hear" His lovingkindness as I dwell in His Word.  He speaks to my heart, into hurts and needs and desires, thru His Word.  I "hear" His lovingkindness when someone gives me a word of encouragement, either directly or thru a note, article or sermon.  I hear His lovingkindness when I "listen" for Him.

Today my Psalm reading was Chapter 5.  I heart leaped when I got to verse 3;

My voice You shall hear in the morning ,O Lord.
In the morning I will direct it to You
and I will look up.

How great is that!! "In the morning" !!
He will hear my voice in the morning
and I will hear His lovingkindness.

"In the morning" I will direct my voice to Him
and He will cause me to the way in which
I should walk.

Have you heard His Lovingkindness lately?
