Cling to the Rock!

Today, reading over and over it hit me life is short! WE don't get it! We act like tomorrow is a sure thing and it's not. Oh, in our hearts we know, but we try to fool ourselves all the time.

Last week I lost a friend that I went to school with from first grade through the Sr. High and we graduated together! He always had a smile and life wasn't easy for him. He wore a breathing machine for years, but still had his smile on his face daily! He loved life and yet others of us walk around with the weight of the world on our shoulders and nobody wants what we are selling. They wanted what Andy had in His Heart - Jesus! Others crave it and when someone like Andy wears His Light so proudly = others see!

How do you wear yours?

Moses, talked in today's reading about God and reminders of all He is and will be and yet the people then failed and we do too...In Psalm 90, Moses wrote that Lord will always be our home! A place that indeed we always go back to, but do we stay? He has always been here and will always be here...Moses shows us just how brief our stay is here on earth...You sweep people away like dreams that disappear. They are like grass that springs up in the morning. Indeed, brief. No one knew that Japan would suffer in just a moment and people would be swept away, but they were.

Wisdom, teach us Jesus! Moses wrote Come back to us! How long will you delay? Take pity on your servants! Imagine, all the suffering around us and we should want this to happen soon. Suffering is everywhere and yet do we realize it? Do we get that we need to turn to the LORD?

In verse 17 of Psalm 90 it states - And may the LORD our God show us his approval and make our efforts successful. Yes, make our efforts successful! Yes, Lord because of your mercy and grace let our life speak to the value, significance, and meaning that only YOU are able to give it! Due to your unfailing love may our life sing for joy to the end of this journey! May others look at us and see Your Light Shining because indeed we are clinging to You! Just like Andy showed all of us!

Sweet Blessings,

Prayer Special - Continued prayers for peace around the World. Japan and all the suffering

Wow, "nobody wants what we are selling." Something to think about for sure.

As I read Moses Song today and the Psalm 90, I wondered if the Israelites were really listening to him? Did they have ears to hear? Am I really getting it? Do I have ears to hear?
