Glory Seed Devotional’s, 2017: Anticipating and Experiencing God…
But God did…
“Then Jesus said, Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28, NLT)
In the last 13 days I have only written one Glory Seed it seems that on September 24th while getting ready for church I reach in the closet for a shirt and CRACK! I suddenly “fell off the wall” and the resulting compression fracture left me with the most horrendous pain I’ve ever experienced left me unable to sit up long enough to do much of anything let alone write a Glory Seed. So, I did what every believer in Jesus does when they find themselves 1 step from being a scramble egg breakfast, I prayed, and in response I found myself living the Humpty Dumpty story.
“Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall; All the king’s horses and all the king’s men Couldn’t put Humpty together again… but God could and God did!” I know that’s not the way Mother Goose’s famous poem ended but those who have a relationship with Jesus and live with Him in their heart is how it will end! I know it’s true because He is in the ongoing process of putting me back together again.
While I may not be familiar with your Humpty Dumpty story but I know the same Jesus that is putting me back together again is at the same time putting you back together as well. I hope you’re not like me whose impatient heart beats to my own rhythm and not Jesus’ heart. But I am learning to have patience and trust that Jesus’ because of the promise in chapter 34 of Isaiah. “There the owl will make her nest and lay her eggs. She will hatch her young and cover them with her wings. And the buzzards will come, each one with its mate. Search the book of the Lord, and see what he will do. Not one of these birds and animals will be missing, and none will lack a mate, for the Lord has promised this. His Spirit will make it all come true.” (Isaiah 34:15–16, NLT)
Crustyism 10.06… Jesus came to show that the Cracked can assuredly be un-Cracked!
“May God be merciful and bless us. May his face smile with favor on us.” **
Grace and PEACE,
