He was just 10 years old and he had this to say "I went to Nicaragua and didn't know what to expect but the kids my age weren't looking to purchase the latest fashions or electronics they seem to be satisfied. They greeted me and hugged me and that felt really good."



Having the love of the Father in your heart must be the greatest priority right now. Keeping your mind free from discontentment, strife and hate. It is vital to pray and give every thought you have over to God.

But why?

Because there is too much to process right now and try and make sense of things but we have a God on the throne working things out for the good of those who love him.

So many times the Pharisees were against the radical moves of Jesus and they asked "why or how could he". He is God and He is asking us to trust Him.

Many have been praying for help. Perhaps help is here and it is radical. Not what "You" would have thought was the best way to make the difference. Yet God is bigger and sees everything.

The Psalmist said "Trust in the Lord with all your heart lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight."
Maybe it's time for God to act and for us to  WATCH!

When the woman anointed Jesus with the expensive perfume. The response of the disciples was that they were repulsed because they knew the value of perfume and thought it could have been used in a wiser way. But Jesus said "The poor will always be there." She chose wisely by spending time with Jesus.

There will always be people with needs but perhaps Jesus wants you to come to Him at this time and leave the rest to Him.

Breathe. Stay in the peace and rest that He wants to gracefully give us.

I was hiking and the path was not always easy. We would come to this river at different points and had to keep crossing it. The tricky part was keeping your balance as you leapt to each rock to finally get to the other side. I guess I started to seem unsure of the trail ahead. Maybe I appeared to look scared. I noticed that my son who was always in front suddenly was behind me. I didn't have to ask him to follow behind me but I began to think I like knowing he is behind me, he's got my back. I liken that to my relationship with Jesus when things get tough I am reminded He is all around me but knowing He is behind me and has my back is really comforting. 

Do you know God is all around you and that He especially has your back?

He says "Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? ...

I want you to know how valuable you are today.

Will you pray with me?
Thank you Father for you love and comfort. I know you have my back today. Amen.
