“Your kingdom come, your will be done, on Earth, as it is in Heaven.”
What is that like? How exactly is God’s will done in heaven? What are the freedoms given in Heaven? Does the Book of Job make you wonder about that? Is it more about how the beings in Heaven respond to God there, because they KNOW the love of God better than we do…???? Even though it’s a mystery, I still want to pray it and still want to see it come.
Bedouin Tent: Engedi Desert:Israel. The Bedouins told us that the coffee grinder, (in the middle of the tent), is musical. The grinding stick hits the metal bowl and rings it’s music through out the desert. The music travels across the vast open space. Wanderers hear it and know, that if they need hospitality, there are people near by willing to host them.
How much coffee the host serves you indicates how long they are willing for you to stay. You will always get three cups, but if the third one is small, it’s time for you to go soon. If it is large, stay on and linger together.
In what ways is the music of your life inviting others to come join you, to be refreshed and looked after, for at least a while?
Who rings out the coffee grinder across your desert?
Acts 2 v 43 to 47 NYALC 2012
Who do you hang out with for the purpose of experiencing God with skin on?
As a spiritual discipline this week, how about intentionally enjoying the good will of the people, and experiencing some of God’s love?
Where and when was the last time you experienced that sense of being in the presence of God, that was strong enough to raise awe in your soul?
Go back there in your memory and enjoy it all over again.
Holy, creative, loving Spirit of God, you move amongst us, with in us, through us, across us. You inspire, lead, correct, redirect, change, shape and mold us.
Help us to be willing to respond. Please.
Give us the gift of flexibility. Please.
Help us to accept your timing. Please.
The wind and the rock at play together.
In a different time zone to ours.
