Today I have the privilege to share a guest blog with you. Pam is my friend and my co-partner in teaching crime on Sunday mornings. She shares her heart and a deep understanding of God. In times that seem, at moments, overwhelmingly complicated what she shares here is balm to my soul. I know it will encourage you, as well. Thanks Pam!
Today is Monday March 16, 2015.
Just 2 weeks ago we "sprang forward" so it is light in the evening, which makes the day seem longer, but dark until about 7:15 in the morning. I get up very early so I eagerly await the sunrise.
Yesterday, the sun was just beginning to lighten the eastern sky as I drove to church. It was a breath-taking sight. Pinks and blues combined to make a glorious pallet all emanating from the sun that was just making its grand appearance. Clouds had begun to dissipate, resembling buttermilk on the side of a used glass.
I was on my way to sing in the 8:00 choir and if my heart were not already prepared for praise, this sky was certainly the perfect primer for my song. My initial thought was the sheer beauty and creative genius being displayed before me.
But it's the next thought that came to mind that I want to share with you this morning.
The very same God whose hand crafted the glory of that morning sky is fully able to respond to the cry of my heart for His intervention in the lives of those I love the most and just as that sky shouts His glory, so will His loving, corrective hand display His glory in answer to my most earnest prayers.
"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."
Ephesians 3:20, 21.
In short, He is able!
