A Haven for Vee

Hijacked

Dennis Fisher suggested in his Daily Bread Devotional of July 25 that sometimes our lives feel as if they've been hijacked. You may enjoy reading the analogy that he used and you may also remember the incident. (I do quite well.)

Sometimes life is unfair. It just is. God never promised us that every life would be lived on the same terms in the same ways. While there is much that we share, we often walk a solitary path except for His presence, EXCEPT for His Presence.

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; Never will I forsake you. Hebrews 13:5

  5. Great post...I went back to read the devotional since I missed it on Friday.

    Our message this morning was about money...and stuff...and that we are only stewards...it's not ours. We arrive with nothing...and we leave with nothing!

  6. Very nice devotional Vee. I will send the Daily bread on to my nephew and his wife as they are going through medical problems with a new baby and I think this will comfort them.

    Thanks!

    Hugs, Pat

  13. Thank goodness He never leaves me or forsakes me! I need Him.

    I love your window box and noticed the plates in there. That is so classy. I know God is smiling at that---He must love gardeners the most;)cause we both deal with weeds.

  14. My little painting in my hall -
    "Sometimes God calms the storm and sometimes he lets the storm rage and calms His child"

    Your fingers are working as hard as ever.

    I will look forward to whatever you manage to post while away b ut I do trust that all goes well and while your parents are having R & R that you manage to have some time out too and that you have a special time with your Grandma.
