“He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”
“So, then it was not you who sent me here, but God. He made me a father to Pharaoh, lord of his entire household and ruler of all Egypt.”
– Gen. 45:8
God is a father to the fatherless. He’s always a father to me in the absence of my father who died 18 years ago. He calms all my fears and hugs me every time I need a TLC. I’m always secure because of His love. I bet Joseph felt the same when he was sold to Egypt and can’t feel the love of his family.
“I led them with cords of human kindness, with ties of love. To them I was like one who lifts a little child to the cheek, and I bent down to feed them.”
– Hosea 11:4
Every once in a while, we do mess up. Sometimes we become a part of messy things to bring fulfillment to what God is doing or about to reveal. Sometimes, we are the victims of situations that we can’t control. Anyhow, we have a gentle God who restores everything if we yield. Whenever we go astray, there’s a way, make a turn and acknowledge Him.
When you look at this view, you can’t ignore the beauty of God’s workmanship. It’s just relaxing and inviting. You can daydream all you want. This was taken in Park City, Utah during the time when we just want to unwind. We were at the “lowest point of our lives” in the US but here we were, being welcomed by a butler, ushered to our suite with two fireplaces, wine and cheese, tv in one of the two baths. It was just awesome! We were pampered at St. Regis Deer Valley.
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine…” Eph. 3:20-21
but mere talk leads only to poverty.” – Proverbs 14:23
My son is obsessed with airplanes. He’s been busy doing this paper model for the past few days or weeks already. Many times I would see him getting out of the house just to watch the airplanes flying above our area.
One day, while waiting for my kids who were swimming, I happen to watch and observe planes that are passing by every 5-10 minutes. This one caught my camera and my son said, “that’s the one I am making.”
