Signs of Life

by | Sep 20, 2014 | Sabbath, Uncategorized, Weekend


As you waltz into the weekend with whoa, wishes or winsome hope, may you feel the embrace of the One who woos you with random wonder.  Among the leaf litter of disappointment lie hints of His redemption.

While you may feel like a wallflower — discarded and disoriented by circumstance — He extends a hand for rescue. He will never forget you, even when you think he has left the building. Look for the signs of life around you while you are waiting for the promise of fulfillment.

Sabbath is a siren of God’s unchanging love when suffering threatens to suck the life out of you.
