I love trees. I love roots. I love wood.
God speaks to me as I work with it. It reminds me of Jesus. It reminds me of the love of my heavenly Father.
Yesterday I was building a 4’ cross on a stand for a friend. The wood came from a local farm and had been sitting in the shed for quite some time. It was hard, stained, dirty and just perfect for this project. As I began to work on it, I thought about the cross where Jesus died. I know it was much, much bigger than this one. I used my saw and chisel. When I tried to hammer the nail into the wood the nail bent! I tried several times. I wondered about hardened hearts and how some were possibly as hard as this wood was. So, then I tried the drill and screws. Same thing. The screws wouldn’t go anywhere. I had to switch tactics. So I found some square nails and they went right through! Well, I had to put the base onto the bottom to make a stand and when I did that I realized my drill was on the wrong setting. I needed to turn it to high torque for the screws. Once I did this they zipped right through the wood! It was a humble reminder to me of how I need to be on the right setting to hear God before I am able to do His work.
Lord, thank you for taking the time to make me listen and thank you for making me take the time to seek you.
I love you!
I’ve got to get this cd! Listen to this song closely- more than once- do you hear it? Put your ear buds in! Beautiful, chilling and glorious!
