Greetings and Joy in Abundance!

Ever wonder why some people seem to be floating through life and others stumble?



I wonder this, and seek to find ways to float instead of stumble. Maybe you would like to join me in this search.

Seeking a closer relationship with God seems to allow my life to float along a little easier.







Phillipians 4:5-6 tells us to reveal our gentleness outwardly, that God is near and that we should not be anxious about anything, but through prayer and petition, we should thankfully approach the Lord with our concerns.

As a high energy person, my anxiety can run high. I am constantly seeking ways to leave my concerns at the foot of the cross.



Random? Probably not.

Resources

I was thinking today about the resources that we have - natural resources and human resources; renewable and non-renewable.

Do you remember your science class that taught you so much about these things?  I remember talking about the need to find alternative resources to the energy producing coal and oil we were using (in the 1970's) and the growth of wind and solar energy.

Kind of funny to me that 40 years later, we are talking about the same things.  I find part of this interesting because I can see that God's hand is in it all.  The design of this world is to sustain human lives and the design of human life is to reflect the glory of God. 

The infinite nature of God does not permeate through the earth or the beings that live on it.  The cycle of life shows through the entire earth, the universe and beyond into things we have not yet even discovered. 

Think of what we know now about our world and what we knew 1000 years ago or 2000 years ago.  Some of the mystery of life has been revealed, but not all.  There is still charm and mystery in our world.  Can we grasp a little of this and hold on?  I watch my young niece and the amazement in her eyes when she discovers something new. 

Do you allow yourself that childlike state when discovering new things?  God tells us to come to Him as a child - to approach our faith this way, excited about discovering new things - utilizing our resources in a way that is honoring and pleasing.  Human resources is not just about jobs.  It is also about how we care for one another and how we treat one another. 

Use this day to remember that humans are a resource - a valuable resource, and we are not renewable...we are each unique and needed!  God bless you as you seek to find ways to be a resource to others today!
