Rain was gently pelting the roof of my office, as I sat quietly reading my Bible and several daily devotional books. The particular devotion I was reading was about a little bird. A sparrow. That thought reminded me of Psalms 84:3 Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself (NIV). I sat quietly for a moment reflecting on my surroundings.
Meko slept on the love seat beside me.
I wonder how often I have made the Lord feel like that. He has to literally "get on top" of the book (or situation in my life) to get my attention.
I can't ignore these furry "people" in my life, anymore than I can ignore the one who created me. I am reminded daily of His words. John 15:5 I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing (NIV).
