John 14:27

While on a walk at a nearby park on Friday, I heard an elderly man from a bench call out to me, “Where’s the flowers?”  I approached him and let him know that if he veered right on the path, went over the bridge and straight over, he would find the flowers.  From his view, instead of flowers, he could see a lot of tall weeds and an area under construction.

Let’s say the weeds and construction represent stress and flowers represent peace.  If you’re at a point in your life where you’re surrounded by weeds and construction, go to God in prayer, and ask Him to show you where the flowers are.  Giving peace is Jesus’ specialty.

Psalm 148

On Friday morning, I woke up at 5:30 which is unusually early for me.  I heard a cardinal singing.  I went to the kitchen window and saw it.  A robin began to sing and I watched a pair of ducks fly by.  It was like they couldn’t wait to start the day by praising God.  Psalm 148 says, “Praise the Lord from the earth, you…flying birds…”

Tomorrow is Monday and many seem to go into “miserable mode” when it arrives.  The birds around here face hawks and cats almost every day.  They sang anyway.   Instead of expecting Monday monotony, let’s, like the birds, start our day praising God.  Even if you don’t sing well, SING to our king!  I hope you have a magnificent Monday!
