Be Planted...

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. A time when we reflect on the many blessings God has showered on us. Many of us are facing difficult times, uncertainties in our future whether financial, health issues or difficult family members. I know in my heart we carry God with us daily, everywhere we go. Praise and thankfulness plant seeds of joy in my heart.

I can’t wrap my arms around the challenges the Apostles faced. The Apostles continually urged us to rejoice always, in everything to give thanks and they did, in circumstances I can only imagine. They continued to turn their face toward God. They knew with God their soul would live and grow. They took to heart Jesus’ words in Matthew 6 Vs. 25-29. How full of praise the bible, God’s word is.

                                                                       Matthew 13:4-8 “The Parable Of The Sower”

4 “And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them.” 5 “Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth; and they immediately sprang up because they had no depth of earth.” 6 “But when the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away. 7 “And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them.” 8 “But others fell on good ground and yielded a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”

Be planted in God’s Grace. God’s unhindered, boundless love is poured out on us in an infinite variety of ways. Even though we don’t deserve it or often do not understand it, His grace comes from His measureless heart of love. There is nothing that can separate us from this love.

Thank you Father, that one by one your grace, your healing spirit, touches everything within us that needs your blessing. Father, we pray for generous hearts that will extend your love and our gifts to others. For the healing and blessings in my life, I give you thanks. Amen
