Lord of All Realms
My friends, can we touch God's heart?
You bet we can! ? ?️
God has woven incredible intimacy into the design and creation of His relationship with us...
One of my favourite times of the day is watching my cats receive their dinner.
They wait with patient trusting little hearts - tracking my every move around 5:30pm.
Then eagerly (and yet still gracefully) they lick clean every mouthful of their yummy wet food... finishing off with the last tiny droplets from their whiskers.
The simple gratitude and evident satisfaction of these creatures afford me so much pleasure - and i savour the daily reminder to offer my gratefulness to God for all His gifts...
At the family dinner table, not only do we relish our food, but we also love to share stories about fun things that happened that day - a second round of enjoyment - only this time multiplied by the sharing!
It thrills my soul that as much as I delight in feeding my cats... and in sharing my day's 'joy highlights' with others... how much more must my Heavenly Father overflow with tender delight and refreshment in His Own Great Soul when I fully enjoy receiving everything He has provided for my life and wellbeing!

So for His sake my friend, I pray that you (yes you!) have a truly enriched "joy full" day today!
O Lord, what a variety of things you have made!
In wisdom you have made them all.
The earth is full of your creatures.
They all depend on you to give them food as they need it.
When you supply it, they gather it.
You open your hand to feed them, and they are richly satisfied.
Luke 12:24,32 [Jesus' words]
Look at the ravens. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for God feeds them.
And you are far more valuable to him than any birds!So don’t be afraid, little flock. For it gives your Father great happiness to give you the Kingdom.
