The Droplet in My Garden

PREFACE   I am republishing this article from last year at the request of people who read it then. I sat in this same garden this morning with my Bible opened to a different passage. Note the heading title in this picture from last year. Hebrews. I was developing the book, Shadows of Things to Come. That book has been published and printed with encouraging words about living in the shadows of life.

This garden is connected to much of my work. And the message of this article from last year had so touched my heart. Perhaps it will touch your heart, too. God bless you as you read about “the droplet!”

********************************************

This week, early on a cool, quiet morning, I was having my quiet time with the Lord on my front porch. It rained the night before. Everything was fresh.

With a mug of coffee, my Bible, and pen jotting in my journal – I noticed something in my peripheral vision. Plants in the garden were “moving.” Every few minutes, ever-so slightly. Yet, enough to catch my attention. Not the steady, tender sway from the slight breeze.

What was causing the movement?

Billy Graham – Living Still

I am devoting this week’s blog to an amazing servant of God. I celebrate the life and message of Billy Graham. His “home-going” to Heaven is a world event. It is turning heads. For some, it’s another fond look at the amazing impact God has had around the globe through this man. For others, it’s a first look.

2 Things to “Be” and 2 Things to “Do” In Your Life

No one sets an appointment with a thief. Robbery is an unexpected event discovered after it happens! You might see a theft in progress. It will be like this when the Lord Jesus returns.

This one event of history will alter everything. Extreme. Elements destroyed. All things laid bare. Panic. Regret. Power never experienced by human beings.

Every time God intervenes in history, something permanent happens. Changes for the better. Fresh, new, good, much improved, much needed. God is very good at fixing human blunders. How sad that these blunders fill the human timeline. How glad that God is intimately active in this “centuries–long” timeline.

The fact that things are headed toward destruction and re-creation should impact your daily living. Jesus’ return will alter daily life. This great and powerful, loving and merciful King will set up a Kingdom that will never misgovern in any way. At that critical point in history, only what is done for Christ will last. That is profound. Contemplate the impact.
