    I don’t know about you, but I need reminders; sticky notes may rank right up there as one of the greatest inventions in modern history. Because of the massive amount of input and output that we deal with on a daily basis, we forget. That is a part of our humanness. It’s not that we plan on forgetting, it just happens. Who in their right mind would plan on forgetting a birthday, anniversary, Valentines Day, or anything else important to us and those around us? But we do, so we need reminders.

    Today I find myself in need of a reminder, this reminder: “Jesus said to them, My Father is always at his work, to this very day, and I, too am working.” John 5:17

    I can’t always see it, and many times I am totally unaware of it, but God is always at work. Our great God who created the vastness of the universe, who laid the foundation of earth, who spoke all things into existence, the God who created Adam out of the dust of the earth and breathed the breath of life into him is always at work. Creativity is a part of His divine being.

    God is at work in my life. As a matter of fact, my great creative God is always at work in my life. You may think what a simple, elementary statement this is, but sometimes in our fast-paced, complicated life we need to be reminded of the simple basic truths.

    I am never surprised at what God does, but I never cease to be amazed. I wonder how God is going to work in my life today. I can hardly wait. How about you?

    Help us continue providing resources of care for pastors and their families.
