Don't fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don't act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like. --James 1:22-24

Lord, tonight I feel gratitude in my heart.
I was fooling myself and you opened my eyes
I lift up needful hands
On my knees I pray to you
Father, I am listening...

A rose in the rain is still just as lovely. Sometimes, even more lovely. I know that when we think of roses, we don't imagine rain falling down on them but we accept as a fact of life that upon every living thing, a little rain must fall.

My friend shares her testimony this evening. In the life of this rose, rain fell. For a time in her life, it fell and fell and fell. It nearly swept her away yet for the love and mercy of the Lord.

Father, thank you for this rose. And for the rain. Thank you for making her strong and giving her the means to survive.

God, you are lovely and you are good. Protect your rose tonight as she shares.

You said you were coming back, Lord. Thank you for keeping your promise. And I know many who knew you and saw you even then did not believe. But I believe and that belief has changed my life forever.

Happy Easter Everyone! God Bless!
