But this morning I am concentrating more on the yatsar - create with something, ingredients. When God created Adam He formed Him from the dust of the earth! It took Him getting His hands not only involved, but dirty. Isn't that awesome. Oh Lord, thank you. Thank you for taking the time to form me in your very own hands. For some reason You wanted to be more involved than just commanding it through your words! Oh that speaks to me. Touch, hugs, kisses, hand shakes, pats on the back - they cause us to reach out and engage. Very few times do you walk away from someone you have just hugged without saying a word. Maybe my kids do when i make them hug and make-up. But that wasn't really a hug anyway! Beth Moore makes a point to let us know this morning that God longs to engage! He reached out "in the beginning" to create and He still reaches out today to touch, love, heal, atta boys, discipline, and holy hugs too! He reached out for the ultimate touch and sacrifice on the Cross. Oh praise you, Lord. Thank you! And then when we get sideways from some reason in our faith we can call on the engager, the toucher, the fixer, the healer, the creator to give us a recharge, refire, retouch!!! Oh Lord, thank you!! Thank you for this word today and the new perspective on what I have studied so many times before!! Thank you!! I do mean that, thank you!
Below is one of my all-time favorite songs. No matter what - no matter how bad it seems - no matter how good it gets - no matter.................I am blessed!!
