Word of the Day.... June 20, 2013

But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,

That shines brighter and brighter until the full day. Proverbs 4:18

As a part of the family of God we are called to be salt and light for Him on earth.  Being about our Father’s business until He calls us home to glory!

He gives us everything that we need to live here and adapt to the world around us while we are here.  When I sit on the beach and watch the birds and the ducks and the water, I can’t help but think how the Lord helps each one to adapt to their environment and its way of life.  Ducks will swim in the lagoons but they never swim in the surf.

Each one of us is a very unique part of the Body of Christ and as such we each have something the Lord wants us to do. I like to watch body surfers in the ocean.  Each part of their body knows exactly what to do to ride the wave and enjoy the exhilarating feeling that comes with it.  You dive under the wave and swim out and wait until you find just the right wave and then start swimming and kicking until you feel the wave begin to carry you all the way to shore.

God has given each one of us something wonderful to do. It is when we are open to the Lord and begin to do what we are called to that the whole body of Christ benefits. Not only that but when you are in the Lord’s will for your life you are blessed beyond belief!  Have a Simply Heavenly Thursday!!!
