Ready to Move Mountains?

Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! This morning we have a cool wind blowing and lots of sunshine. As I stood outside I saw two mockingbirds perched on the wire and a cardinal went flying by as an airplane flew up, made a right turn then another and headed north. Lots of activity early in the day. Speaking of activity, I think there is a new squirrel family in the oak trees in the back yard. Two small ones were chasing each other around and around the tree, and then a third joined in. I usually see them leap from the tree to the telephone wire in the back, so I think they must come from those trees.

I went for a walk Saturday in the park. Walked up the sidewalk to the second bridge and on to the third bridge. The only signs of life I saw, human or animal , were four moorhens splashing quietly in the shallow water at the third bridge. They didn't look small, so they must have been two couples, since they stay together for life. Humans could take a lesson from their devotion.

God's timing is perfect, since the weather last week was so great for my trip to Tenn. and NC. Today it has been stormy up there, and I would not look forward to flying in stormy weather! But God is good!

From the devotional, Knowing God;

For truly I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you shall say to this moiuntain, "Move from here to there", and it shall move, and nothing shall be impossible to you.
Matthew 17:20 NASB

Because we live in a demanding world, all of us have mountains to climb and mountains to move. Moving those mountains requires faith.

Are you a mountain-moving Christian whose faith is evident for all to see? Or, are you a spiritual underachiever? As you think about the answer to that question, consider this: God needs more people who are willing to move mountains for His glory and for His kingdom.

Are you willing to let God help you move mountains, or are you still stumbling around over a few little molehills? The answer should be obvious. And so, with no more delays, let the mountain moving begin!

-- Great Thoughts
My faith does not rest on what I am or will be or will feel or will know, but in what Christ is, in what he has done, and in what he is now doing for me.
C. H. Spurgeon

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
