I know this isn't the prettiest rose bush ever, but it belongs to me, and it's the only one I have. It needs some care, and I know next season it will be full of life again.

I am so sorry that I didn't get to post anything yesterday. I was experiencing technical difficulties, or in other words, this machine wasn't doing what it was suppose to do. I think the quickest way to get me frustrated has to do with computers. It seems as if, "out of nowhere", what works for weeks all of a sudden doesn't. All the techies out there will say, that doesn't happen, but I know different!

I have asked myself, why does this bother me so. I think the only conclusion is that since my understanding is limited, and I don't know what to do when things don't work right, the unknown becomes a snare and a fear. Does this sound familiar to you?

It's the same in our spiritual lives. When we don't understand why God allows something in our lives, we can think that  He has forgotten us. What an absurd idea! He, who was marred, and impaled with nails cannot forget us; we are engraved on the palms of His hands. He will forever hold those scars as a reminder to us of His unfailing love and devotion. The reason those scars are there is for our benefit. Our freedom was costly, but it was sought in love and passion for us to be free, alive, and able to live this life to the fullest.

My rose bush reminds me of how I can be sometimes. My cup isn't full and overflowing. That is when I cry out to the Lord of life, to fill me once again. Are you feeling a little on the empty side on this Friday morn? Allow God"s word to satisfy your soul!

"I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of His righteousness. as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteous spring up before all nations.  {Isaiah 61:10-11}  Put on God's robe of righteousness, and be blessed this day!
