I would guess if you’re a grandparent of little ones who live far, far away you have heard of and used Skype! I love it. I just love hearing our little kids and the big ones too and then seeing them is just icing on the cake.
Can you tell we just hung up from talking to our far away kids? Our 4-year-old wanted to see the snow, he can’t catch the idea that when it is day at his house it is night at ours. The two-year old was eager to tell us that she has fun at Sabbath School and the 11-year-old let us know she was hungry. We didn’t talk long, but just enough to make us lonely to put our hands on those kids.
Have you ever wondered about Jesus, does he tune into us like we do on Skype? Does he have a big control room where he can just check in on any one at any time? Just how does it work for Him. Have you ever thought about what HE does all day? Does he just sit around in his kingly room and listen to the angels play their harps? Now and then tuning in to earth to see how things are going.
I am reading a book that suggests Jesus is in heaven working, actually looking for people like us to help him with his work. To maybe even help out with a miracle or two. Can you imagine? The author suggests every day we must do what Isaiah did and say, “Here am I Lord, send me.” Think about it wouldn’t it be fun to be in on some miracles, even partner with Jesus on a little surprise here or a helping hand there. I like this idea a lot.
Let’s try to make it a habit to tell Jesus we are willing to partner with Him. I think it will be, as Dr. Phil says, –a life changing day.
Think about this:
1. Do the right thing
2. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.
3. God heals everything
5. However good or bad a situation is, it will change
6. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
7. The best is yet to come
