o you notice that I am knocking andD hoping to enter your life? There is no handle on my side of this door to your heart. Know I am here for you. Will you let me in? It is your choice, and I hope you say “ Yes” today. Do you notice that I am knocking and hoping to enter your life? There is no handle on my side? Know I am here for you. Will you let me in?
If you listen with your heart today, Jesus will help you answer that question. You will find out who Jesus wants to be for you right now in your life.
Today take some time to ask Jesus this question. Maybe you will be surprised by Jesus’ answer. Jesus knows each of us much better that we know ourselves.
1. And let’s remember as we reflect today some lessons from the geese. 2. people who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going quicker and easier because they are traveling on the thrust of one another. 1. We need to make sure our honking is encouraging. The power of encouragement ( to stand by one’s heart and core values and to encourage the heart and core of others) is the quality of honking we seek. 2. If we have as much sense as these geese, we will stand by each other and this will make us strong.
