FW E-mail Devotions....

Postby RedBaron » Wed Dec 12, 2007 4:10 pm

Ok... so someone had mentioned something about the daily devotions in the FW e-mail. Until today I had never seen it - thinking it was an e-mail that was sent, and I just wasn't getting them or something.... rather than being at the bottom of the page. (I just go straight to the new mail and just hadn't noticed it).

The devotion today seemed fitting - God is making changes, I've been feeling restless for awhile..... I just have to not panic lol

Our Daily Devotional:

The Oak Tree

Isaiah 55:8-10 NIV: "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."

"Timber," the man shouted, after withdrawing his axe from a last well-placed chop. Within a few seconds, after a few loud snaps and pops, the massive oak fell to the ground. "Why would you chop down such a beautiful tree?" someone asked. "Because," he replied, "I have another use for it." Like with the oak, why would God bring someone to what seems to be one thing, only to change the plans? Maybe because that was never His plan to begin with. Where we might say, "Ah, look how God has made me;" God says, "My child, we´ve only begun." As we reflect on our lives, it might be easy to assume we know what God is making some of us to be. But, could it be that God spends many years making us an oak tree, not so we will remain an oak tree, but so we will finally be ready to be made into what He had actually planned for us all along?

Hey! Why can't these be put into our own devotion thread waaaay down close to the bottom so we all could see them everyday as part of the message board ministry?

PS. But can't some of us remain oak trees to provide shade, and support for nesting and other forms of life? 8) It hurts getting cut! :mrgreen:
