    See the birds of the sky, that they don't sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns. Your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren't you of much more value than they? Which of you, by being anxious, can add one cubit to the measure of his life? Why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies ...

    For the thing which I fear comes on me, That which I am afraid of comes to me. Job 3:25 WEB.As we worked to get the fish hook free of my eyelid, an actual calmness came over me.

The Body Snatcher

  • I will seek that which was lost, and will bring back that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick; Ezekiel 34:16 WEB.

    As the tears flowed down my face, I knew they weren't mine. I had a rough upbringing. I could count the people I trusted on one of my hands and still have a couple of fingers left. Yet, as I laid hands on this hopelessly lost rogue, I could feel the love God had for them. They had stolen so many things in the past and were even now wanted by the police. Yet, I could feel such compassion welling up inside me.

    It was just one hard-hearted person, praying for another one, but the Lord melted us both. These feelings were not natively mine, for I was abducted by the Holy Spirit. I didn't even want this person in my yard, but God loved this lost soul, and He had sent them to my house to ask for prayer that day. They were in a really bad situation. For some reason, they looked up to me. Maybe because I had invited them to church a few times.

    I didn't like this person, but when they asked me to pray for them, I submitted to the Holy Spirit's guidance. The moment that I touched them, we all started weeping. It was a divine encounter, and I could feel the Lord breaking through years of pain and disappointments. I could literally feel how much God loved this poor soul who was lost, alone, scared, and hurting. The arrest warrants with their name on them didn't affect the love God had for them nor push Him away. Our Heavenly Father understood them when no one else did. I could see that even though society rejected them, Jesus accepted them.

    If you are lost, know that the Lord is seeking you today, and He isn't mad. He understands and wants you to come to Him. God loves the lost, and He wants to bring them all into His family. What you have done in the past doesn't matter. For He will wash you as white as snow. If you are standing near them, then you might just become His means to reach them. The Lord will use your hands as His own and your mouth to speak His words. The Holy Spirit is the Ultimate Body Snatcher.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please lead me into divine encounters and conversations. Open the door, and I will step through it. I will be Your hands on this earth. Here I am, Lord. Use me. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: For those participating in the Creation Photography weekly themes, here is this week's challenge from group leader, Dianna Wyles: Exodus 14:14 "The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.' ~ 'Standing Still' will be our next fun-tastic theme that, as always, is wide open for some fun, creative interpretation We also encourage you to post anything else that inspires you as well. My photos this week reflect just a few of the blessings I am allowed to capture when I take the time to stand still within God's glorious creation that is the great outdoors! May you be blessed beyond measure in all your motion and your standing still moments! May you be well. Here is the link: Creation Photographers
