THE LIVING GOD – RENEWS

Hang On!  Have you felt like you are #teetering on the #edge?  This morning as I looked out of my kitchen window at the popcorn tree and it  was filled with #robins, #cardinals, #finches, baby #flickers, and #bluebirds.  I could not even count all of them as they were hanging on twigs, perching, and swooping to get the last of the popcorn before the leaves emerge.  My cup was filled with joy while sipping coffee as I watched God providing food for the birds.   God  renews His creation.  His timing is perfect even to sustain the life of the birds and trees.  We see emerging green leaves on the branches  just in time for the spring growth and renewal.  Those birds count of that tree for sustenance .   I see the baby woodpecker returning to the same crook in the branch from year to year.  Where do you go for strength and renewal ?   I turn to God as He renews and refreshes.  “God gives power to the faint and to them that have no might, He increases strength.  Even the youth shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: but THEY THAT WAIT UPON THE LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR STRENGTH, they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint” Isaiah 40:29-31  After the flu this season, I needed to be reminded that God is the one who renews and to rejoice in His care!  Rev.4:11 “Thou art worthy, O LORD, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou has created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created”  Just as I had so much pleasure watching the birds feasting in the popcorn tree this morning, I am reminded that we were created for God’s pleasure.   What does He see?  Hang with HIM!
