The Work behind the Scene

We have a hard time seeing sunsets 
with the way our house is positioned on the lot.
And all the trees.
But a few nights ago,
 I saw an odd glow in the back yard.
Sunset time-
but that is my clue to go look out
 on the other side of the house.
We don't really have a window
 with a great sunset view.
But, once in awhile, 
I catch the signal 
to go running out the front door.
I couldn't help but think about that
 is the way God works in my life too.
He is always working in the background,
 in places I can't even see.
And once in awhile I catch a glimpse.
How good is the Master-
 as He brings to completion 
the good work begun in Me.

And I am sure of this, that he who 
began a good work in you 
will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

Lenten Journaling in Community- #1

I have debated whether  to share the journey of Lent 2020. Seems like so much has been  shifted in our world right now. But, I am learning that in these very fragile days,  it is precisely what these practices  have offered in community-  that have become reassurance and "saving grace." So I will go ahead and share the Visual Journey  of processing with the book-When From Death I'm Free. This was the joint effort of author Justin Rossow  and Visual Faith Coach Valerie Matyas. She rounded up talented artists  to add to the visual resources
 that tie together hymn studies  of both traditional hymns  and contemporary hymns by Kip Fox.
The book incorporates Visual Faith prayer practices
 that we have developed 
and teach in our learning communities. It is a 12 week study and I will share the journey  in the order that we are doing them in community,  using the order of the pages in the book.
