Some of the most profound works of Jesus occured while in the midst of or in the process of going to or doing something else, entirely. Jesus was often called away or detained as people of the day beseeched Him for His Mercy or some Miracle.
In the times we are living, theres a need wherevever you look. Until the time that Jesus returns, we are the embodyment of Him in this world and that vital link between the two. As the Holy Spirit moves in us we are the vessels of His workmanship fitted for the work of His Kingdom. Through Words, through deeds, prayers and presence in Christ!
It’s very common for us to get overly focused on one aspect or obsess over details, of the things that in the bigger picture just simply do not matter. Our flexibility and ready desire to serve Him is what He is seeking from us. Imagine what a different read the Bible would have been had Jesus sent word,
“Let them wait, dont they know I have important speeches to prepare, lessons to illustrate and groups of followers”. No, Jesus never beraided those who sought Him so earnestly. Rather, He dealt with the matter right there and sraightway with Love, compassion and the greatest of attention.
Life is going to throw curve balls and those who we are placed here for us to serve will need us when its least convenient, while we are busy, in the midst thereof, doing our thing. Its our response to Gods call to action that matters and it could prove to be the saving grace for some other in depserate need.
This message, although timely, was temporarily delayed due to some very sensitive and serious prayer requests which have flooded in. Unfortunately, several folks in my circles of friendship are facing the loss of loved ones, severe illness’, surgeries and hospitalizations. Prayers are continuing and I praise God for the same attention He gives, Lord, every hour we need thee!
We dont tell the world how Big our Problems are, we tell our Problems How Big Our God is!
Have a blessed week!

23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.”
24 Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”
25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
27 “Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”
