And they worshiped Him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, and were continually in the temple praising and blessing God. Amen.
What a difference those last days with Jesus made! The disciples now moved forward with joy, praising and blessing God. Again, Jesus had provided the increase and allowed them to more fully understand. I wonder if I am really open to hear and accept what God is trying to show me. It is not more brains or a more physically fit body or more money or more influence that will bring me closer to God- It is an open heart and acknowledgment of my brokenness. Have I fully opened myself up to all of God’s teaching? I don’t want to miss what God is setting before me.
Holy Father, these last few days I have been reminded by you to listen and learn from both your Word and from the Holy Spirit which you have sent to be with me as my helper. God, I will try to listen more closely and more constantly. I know you are the one who can help me to grow. I cannot do it on my own. Amen
