Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

April 8, 2009

Yesterday morning
my cat Willow jumped onto my lap,
like she usually does, but
in trying to get into a comfortable position
got her claws (which need trimmed)
caught in the fabric
of the pictured blanket above.

Are you too trying to claw
your way onto the Lord’s lap?

If we try to get close to Him
using our own strength
we too may become entangled
in the pride of our accomplishments.

He is always present so why not
allow yourself to be picked up by Him
so He can comfort and take care of your needs.

Rely more than try.
When we rely on Him,
when we give ourselves over to Him,
He will guide and
we will be more than satisfied.
