As I was reading through my Bloglines this morning, Like Merchant Ships sent me over to Zakka Life for some creative uses for little toys. Oh. My. Word. I just loved all the links there. I used to do fun stuff like that. I think they’ve inspired me to try it again. Y’all check that link out and be sure to check out the pages she links to. You’ll be inspired too!
And if you’ve found yourself a bit stressed with the rising gas and grocery prices, the upcoming election, and all the gloom and doom in the news, check out resolved2worship’s entry this morning on When the Heat Comes. It’s a good reminder to check where you’re putting your trust.
As Christians fully rooted in Christ, we need to pull from that River of Life, the Living Water day-by-day, moment-by-moment. The heat is definitely gonna come, but we have that River of Life flowing within us and because of that, we can take the heat, dig down deep, and remain strong through it all.
This is what the LORD says:
"Cursed is the one who trusts in man,
who depends on flesh for his strength
and whose heart turns away from the LORD.
He will be like a bush in the wastelands;
he will not see prosperity when it comes.
He will dwell in the parched places of the desert,
in a salt land where no one lives.
"But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
whose confidence is in him.
He will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit."
Jeremiah 17:5 – 8
Happy Wednesday y’all.
