...... A STREAM IN THE DESERT


DOWN TO EARTH


Sure, I believe in God!


After all, the universe didn’t just happen.


But what does that have to do with me?


God is up there.

I’m down here.


I’ve got a life to live.


Let God take care of his thing.

I’ll take care of mine.


But what if “God’s thing” has to do with you?


With the life you’re living.


What if God is even now speaking a word to your soul?


Bringing you some good news.


“That burden on your heart.  I’ve come to lift it.”


“That uneasy conscience.  I’m here to forgive and heal.”


God may be “up there” but he’s also “down here.”


For thus says the high and lofty One

Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:

“I dwell in the high and holy place,

And also with him who is of a contrite and humble spirit,

To revive the spirit of the humble,

And to revive the heart of the contrite.”

Isaiah 57
