Adventures in Finding God

There Is No Time Limit on Beauty


I might have seen this leaf months ago as I wandered through the forest. But I doubt it. It was no different than millions of other leaves waving high above in the wind. In time this leaf among millions, shimmering green in the canopy fell. Fell onto the ground, into a puddle. Floating on a rainy day. Waiting for me. And I found it, beautiful.


Take What You Need But What Will You Give?

I was scrolling through Facebook this morning and randomly watched this video. Obviously I was caught off guard by the people who looked like they had money were the ones who took the most. And then the guy who took money who said he didn’t even need it. Really? And then the guy at the end…

The point, for me at least, in reaction to this video was to ask who am I? There will be times when I am the one who can give and times I will be the one in need. When I am in need, what do I really need and do I at all consider the needs of others in relation to my needs? And perhaps more importantly, as I am able what do I have to give? Time, energy, effort… grace, forgiveness, love? The list should be endless.

“Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.” – Deuteronomy 15:10 (NIV)


How He Loves

Sometimes I just need to play this song. Never get tire of this one by David Crowder.


Fight The Good Fight

Yesterday afternoon Lori and were on a walk and for some reason the words “fight the good fight” came to mind. Not sure why they would pop into my head but they were there. And while I could not recall the larger context at that time, I did remember to look them up this morning.

“Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”
— 1 Timothy 6:12

Wow! Okay! Now I’m being flooded with thoughts of “fights” friends have shared recently. Our lives are full of struggles against our sinful nature, with battles against illnesses of all types and sizes, challenges in relationships with friends or families…to name just a few. Struggle. Struggle. Struggle. It can be seemingly endless and overwhelming.

Then the words from Paul to Timothy pop into my head again. And not just those words but the simple confidence that He is with me. With you. With all those who call on Him as their Lord and Savior.

And then the words BE OF GOOD FAITH. Which I then Googled (thinking maybe they were from scripture) and found this song on YouTube…OH MY GOODNESS. I encourage you to listen to the words and be encouraged. Be of good faith.

So, this morning I am reminded again in God’s miracle. It obviously has been a while since I’ve written. January it looks like. Yet in my wondering, my questioning, God led me to a beautiful song I would not have otherwise found. Our God is an awesome God.
