The air is getting cooler and the trees are changing color. I enjoy this time of year, although I must say honestly, that warmer weather appeals more to my California blood! This season is absolutely gorgeous, so I have found myself taking more walks around the neighborhood.
I have been reminded of when Adam walked with God in the garden. Wouldn't that have been a neat thing to do if we were living back then--to communicate with our Creator and to have Him communicate back verbally? I'm thankful that we can still talk to God anytime, anywhere, and about anything. He is always listening, but we must listen closely to Him as He speaks to us through His Word.
I've had some burdens in my heart this week. On this particular walk, I asked God a lot of questions and told Him my desires. He has immediately comforted me with His Word and through the encouragement of dear friends.
"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30
Although I'm still waiting for answers, I know that God is working all things for good. He loves me and cares about all the details of my life.
"Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass." Psalm 37:4-5
