As I read through the Bible, I can't help but be in awe of the amazing characteristics of God.

In today's scripture focus in Ezekiel, it struck me how the Lord always strikes the right balance.

As a parent, I know I sometimes struggled with finding the right tone. I could be overly harsh or too permissive. It was difficult at times to not be swayed one way or the other.

But we can take our cue from God. Today we are going to reflect on Ezekiel 20:27-49, where we see God finding the perfect mix of righteous judgment and mercy. I can trust Him because I know He always has what's best in mind.

Pray on!

Thank you for joining us for Reflections, short meditations on scripture intersecting life.

But I will gather together the remnant of my flock from the countries where I have driven them. I will bring them back to their own sheepfold, and they will be fruitful and increase in number. Jeremiah 23:3

Some of you may know that I am on a cross-country journey with my husband. He is riding his bicycle, and I am pulling the travel trailer. One of the things God put in my mind to do on this trip is to pray for our country while I'm driving. So I started Prayer Across America. Check it out if you'd like to join me in praying.

Well, this week I was feeling a bit discouraged (read that as sorry for myself) as if I was the only one praying for our great nation ever. God used a few things to encourage me, including the above verse. Listen in to the podcast to hear the rest of the story.

Jeremiah 7:24 NLT

Are you discouraged with your journey with God? Sometimes we need to step back at look at the big picture rather than just where we are at the moment. Assess your progress over one year, 5 years, 10 years for an accurate picture of your spiritual life.

Join me today in Reflections as we talk about forward progress. Leave your thoughts in the comment section and thanks for listening!

1 Corinthians 13

The #LoveTrumpsHate is being bandied around lately. I see it on signs, blog posts, Facebook, and Twitter. But it's often accompanied by words and actions that aren's so loving. No matter who you supported in the election, both sides are slinging nastiness back and forth. Clearly the love is missing from this hashtag. 

Why? It's certainly a good intention.

To find out, let's look to the Lord, the One who gave us the manual on love, 1 Corinthians 13. Join us for a short discussion on what this kind of love looks like.

Be sure to write down your reflections and keep the conversation going with God throughout the day. May your soul's meditations be fuel for Spirit-led actions today!

Pray on!
