GOLD BENEATH THE SURFACE

Tonight we read a few parables that Jesus told his disciples and my husband asked our daughter whether she understood the one about Jesus telling the people to remove the plank out of their own eye before worrying about the speck in another’s eye. My daughter couldn’t have explained it better. She said “It’s about people minding their own business.”

The Bible calls for deeper thinking, deeper understanding and more importantly an open heart for the Holy Spirit to reveal the things that are hidden.

The Holy Spirit’s invitation for me is to draw deeper into the knowledge of God. 
It is God’s invitation for me to come away from shallow thinking and rise as He desires to take me deeper, to show me more of His plans for my life.
Dear heavenly Father, I ask this day for the grace to answer to this call to go deeper with you, to come away from shallow thinking and dig for the truth.. For there is more in going deeper. Amen

We have a new addition to the family and everytime I look into his eyes he fills me with so much joy. I see how God is so quick to forgive because in his eyes we are but little children without any direction. God is our guide. God is truly a God of love.

No longer an object of mockery, for the Lord has indeed given me back all the years that were lost to the locusts. I’m awake in the middle of the night pondering on the awesomeness of my saviour. He is indeed a promise keeper whose love is unfailing and  unending. In you oh Lord I live, move and are my being. I’m in awe of your awesome greatness.

From a grateful heart.
