Always a surprise!
No king is saved by the size of his army. —Psalm 33:16a
For many, the spiritual journey is another goal-oriented project. It’s true: you can knock on the door patiently. Patience holds the key. Yet, the door opens from the other side. The response from the other side is mysterious and totally outside the influence of our agendas. It’s never something we “achieve” and is always a surprise.—Amos Smith, Be Still and Listen
Prayer of the Day
Jesus, tender Shepherd, help me to be your little child today, that I may be small enough in my own eyes to see what you want to reveal to me. Amen.
