Dinner sits on the stove…waiting. God’s provision handed over to bellies already full with life abundant while those a world away also wait…a different kind of hunger shadows the face of the suffering.
How often do I take for granted the offering? Blind eyes always searching above the gifts seeking something more. Something different in the many folds and layers of grace.
Why do I complicate the blessing – take what is given only to second guess and question both myself and the Giver; yet still He blesses me.
"Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea..."
Psalm 46:2 (NIV)
Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”
(James 4:13-15) NIV
