those who sail on distant seas

today's readings: Numbers 33:40-35:34, Luke 5:12-28, Psalm 65:1-13, Proverbs 11:23

so today we are reminded in the Psalm that God loves all of His children... not just those who believe the same thing we do.

the Psalmist talks about those who pray that "sail on distant seas." anytime a human being lifts up their hearts in prayer, God hears them. He calls them to Himself. He desires for everyone to come closer to Him and leave their emptiness and pain behind.

let's be generous in our prayers, as God is generous with us. let's pray that everyone finds Him. as undeserving as I am of His love, I'm certainly grateful for it.

thank you, God, for your rain, that falls on the just and unjust alike.

What spoke to me today was the friends of the man who was paralyzed. They couldn't get him in the door because of the people there, so instead of turning away and saying we tried but we couldn't get you in, they carried him up on the roof, removed some tile and lowered him down. Lord give me the determination to help others completely and not stop at the obstacles.
