Philippians 2:13

“For it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.” 

If you and I were jerked out of the world, would we leave a noticeable hole? Would anything be missing from the world that would stand for God in Christ or His righteousness? God did not create us to merely exist. He wants to make a difference in this world through your life and mine.

You see, God made us to stand out and to stand up for Him, and He equips us with everything we need to do just that. So take time to thank God for the work He is doing in you and look for ways you can work for His good pleasure by being a blessing to others.

Prayer…..Sunday Evening 

My Lord…. Teach me  I wish to be a blessing to others. I do this in one way, and that’s working in my folks gardens. I take my iPhone and my speaker with me to my client job sites. I find my favorite music soundtrack and I listen to what I refer to as “your music.” Your music is prayer, it is spiritual, it is worship, it is my time with you. Most often my clients will come out to “catch up” with me as I tend their gardens. When they are chatting with me they sometimes ask me about my beautiful music. I know it stands out. They hear it. It is intentional in some ways, and yet it’s really your music that keeps  me steadfast, grounded and faithful and close to you. I am then Faithful to my tasks for my clients.  Sometimes they acknowledge my music. Sometimes they do not. It’s fine. You are with me, you are in me and so together we are opening doors, we are opening hearts and we are building and nurturing souls one client at a time. You are making a difference in me and them, through your life and mine together in my gardens. Yes Lord….we are nurturing souls.

Thank you Lord for your songs. Amen……
