I saw it and couldn’t help but wonder about its future.
It was a glorious day weather-wise yesterday. For an early April day, it may have been summer outside with sunshine and temperatures in the upper 70s. I was blessed to have time in the afternoon to spend part of it outside as well, sitting on my front porch taking in the fresh air and warm sun on my face.
rI also took in the sights of my front yard post-snowdrifts, including the boulevard maple tree. In it, I saw an empty bird nest I hadn’t noticed before, left over from last year. Other than the first robin of spring I have yet to see a mass arrival of birds so I found myself pondering, was this little nest going to see new tenants this year, or would it be left to fall away, empty and unused?
I wished for the former but thought to myself, right now I feel like that little nest – very much empty and in need of something to take up residency.
It only took a recall of the promises of God to get that space filled, because when we go to Him with an empty cup He promises to fill us to overflowing. Here’s what took up occupancy in my heart as I enjoyed my time with Him yesterday – a promise and a prayer for us all:
“You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.” (Psalm 16:11)
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13)
What is something you are very picky about? Something that you like just so?
