Genesis 2:15 (NIV)

15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

Reading the above text, it struck me that God is highly in favor of work!  Not only is He in favor of it, He put Adam in the garden to “work and take care” of it.  In other words God told Adam to “Get to work!”

This holiday break has been an absolute blessing but it is over and now and time to go back to work.  Time to be about completing and undertaking tasks purposed by God for me.  These periods of respite away from the daily grind have a way of providing more than just physical and emotional rest.  Ok, so maybe I did a bit more knitting than actual resting, but those long uninterrupted periods of knitting provided quiet moments of reflection and contemplation.

Rested, ready, reliable and responsive,  let us go into the next phase of our tasks, whatever work we do, give glory to God while working!  Be grateful to be employed and understand that God employs us to be emissaries on behalf of the Kingdom!  Now, it is time to get back to work!

Psalm 34:9 (MSG)9Worship God if you want the best; worship opens doors to all His goodness. Psalm 34:9 (NIV)

9 Fear the Lord,  you his holy people,  for those who fear Him lack nothing.

Psalm 34:9 (NKJV)

9 Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him.

One text, three versions wonderful words.   I worship God out of love and have witnessed the miracle of open doors and windows when least expected.  I worship, not fear because more often than not my heart defines fear as a negative.

Yet, my adoration, praise, respect and worship are seamless because God’s abundance has already been shown in my life.  God is my Father  – my Father provides.  The Lord is my Shepherd – He guides and protects.  My love, praise and thanksgiving are my meager humble gifts for all He has done and continues to do in my life.  Though trials may come – I will continue to praise Him!

Psalm 34:9 (MSG)

9 Worship God if you want the best;   worship opens doors to all His goodness.

Today it is all about praising God in all His awesomeness.  No matter what we may be going through, worshiping God is the fastest way I know to change my mood!  Thinking about how awesome He is and how much He loves me, I cannot help but have my mood elevated!!

5 No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. Joshua 1:5 ((NIV)

Watching the news this weekend, I saw the absolute devastation wreaked by multiple tornadoes in multiple locales and I was overcome by a strange sense of deja vu.  My unceasing prayer has been for restoration and healing and I found the tears flow when I hear Tom, Bubba or Bob tossing timber with tears in their eyes as they tell of what they and their families have lost and with yet in their next breath they are thanking God. It is so often told and repeated, these tales of heartbreak and loss. The sole surviving baby, the ruined church and the promise of more. Through it all, God is praised and the spirit of community is once again invoked and enacted.  God told Joshua “As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.”, this promise is still relevant today and what has to fuel and sustain the faith of those who must survive after the storms, hurricanes and tornadoes.

We awoke to snow, again, this morning but unlike so many other times instead of cowering cowardly inside peering from inside,  I am out in it, marveling at the peaceful, pristine beauty. The views change from day-to-day but God is unchanging and his handiwork always beautiful provides promises of Heaven.
