The Abandoned Barn

The Abandoned Barn

While driving down a country backroad, I came across an old abandoned barn.  It sat in varying stages of decay.  I pulled off the road, and allowed myself the luxury of imagining how it would feel to be left out in the elements with no one to make repairs or care about my well being.  It was obvious that at one time this barn had been well kept, and was very useful to its owner.  It made me sad, but, at the same time, I was reminded of God's presence   He does not abandon us, but it is up to us to make the necessary repairs that keep us useful to our Heavenly Father.  We can stay in state of the art condition, by having daily contact with Him.  Reading the word, and making time to be in His presence assures us that He is with us to the end of time, so we will never be abandoned.

Thought for the day:   “No matter what storm you face, you need to know that God loves you. He has not abandoned you.” Franklin Graham

Hebrews 13:5 and (NKJV)
5 Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Awesome and Holy Father, thank you for being faithful,
and never forsaking us.  Help us to seek you out, and follow your example of faithfulness.  We pray in the name of your Son and our Savior, amen.
