Matthew 9:36 (NIV)

36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them,  because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

Matthew 13:2  (NIV) 2 Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore.

When the word spread through the villages and towns that Jesus was coming, they flocked en mass to where ever he was to hear what he had to say.  The words spoken and lessons taught caused people to literally drop what they were doing to hear this man from Galilee speak .  As I watched American Idol last night there were remarks about the audience of 7,000 people packed into the Nokia stadium.  A stadium with comfortable seats, air conditioning and restrooms.   This to hear two gifted young people sing for a title.

Christ packed a shoreline with folks so tight, he had to sit on the water in a boat to teach.  There were no restrooms, no comfortable seats or concession stands.  Physical comfort was not a concern, the desire to hear what the Master was teaching was the objective and sole purpose for being in that place, at that time.  I have witnessed crowds losing their minds over this celebrity or that celebrity whose ultimate goal is merely to entertain and not necessarily uplift.

Give me Jesus!  I would take the discomfort, heat and crowd just to have been able to hear Him speak the words that have on so many occasions provided salve for my soul.  He still speaks today and I yearn to hear and obey each and every word.

Making His praise glorious!

4 One thing I ask from the LORD,  this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD   all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the LORD  and to seek him in his temple.  Psalm 27:4 (NIV)

Yesterday evening and not for the first time I got it! I witnessed one of the reasons my husband loves Richmond! Crossing the bridge as the sun was retreating from the sky God painted it with broad strokes of fuisha, pinks and displayed on a generous blue canvas. It took my breath away, my eyes were glued and my heart full of thanks. So vivid the memory, I am still aglow and sorry the camera was not in hand. Some days it is God’s hand-painted brush strokes that remind me to appreciate each and every gift my eyes behold.

10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and [a]have it abundantly. John 10:10 (NASB)

It has been well over three months or  maybe longer since I updated my Windows Phone.  Imagine my joy and surprise when I was finally able to complete that long-awaited process!  Things this contraption did that made no sense finally started working properly and um, now made sense.  Clearly, there were critical updates and patches that needed to be downloaded in order for this highly sophisticated phone to run optimally.

Before you brand me a non-geek and start petitions to push me back to the dark flip-phone ages, let me state that previously I had tried more than once to obtain the updates, yet repeatedly I was dogged update errors and failures. So in frustration, I gave up and decided as long as it rang, played a game or two and allowed me to write this blog, that was sufficient. You see, I was willing to settle for just basic operation and not everything the Windows Phone was created to do.

I have been created and empowered by God to be even more incredible than any old phone. Yet because of crowd anxiety, doubts,  the painful pulling and stretching caused by growing pains, deeply etched scars and scar tissue of heartaches and breaks, (i.e. Update and patch errors) I opted out of critical life patches and updates.   Missing these updates caused me at times to accept far less than the abundance of what God had planned for me.  Going into this day I thank God for the ongoing critical updates in His Word that will allow me to live life, fully and abundantly as He perfectly designed.
