The Little Yellow B ird

Psalm 36:5-9: God’s love reaches the heavens.  However, when we are not aligned with God’s will, it can be hard to feel.  Yet sometimes, it is when we have strayed far, that out of the blue, God reminds us that he is there. It might be something as simple as a yellow bird flying in front of your car. Those little things that happen that make you smile during a yucky day.  Those things are God reminding you that he is there. What about the times when you have strayed away from God? You know for whatever reason, you have not been to church for three may five weeks now. You haven’t read even the scripture of the day for two to three weeks, you may not have prayed in five or six days. Nothing more than your bedtime prayer, the one you have said out of habit for a very long time. Maybe out of habit you have said Grace, but it is repetitious, the feeling just isn’t there. This is a very dangerous place to be, yet many Christians find themselves in this spot.  It is dangerous, because at this point you know that you need to get back to paying attention to your best friend, you constant companion, your comforter, your guidance, GOD. But it is so easy to get into that habit of busy, of worldly life. I mean what is one more Sunday, one more day?  See why it is a dangerous place; it is so easy to fall back into the worldly habits. It is so easy to let God just slip away.  But it is not good.  We give up so much when we slip further and further away.  We lose our guidance of the Holy Spirit. See when we don’t talk to God that voice that is the Holy Spirit, slips away. We lose the peace that God gives us. We lose the confidence that comes with a healthy conversation (prayer) life. And sometimes we miss the little yellow birds that are sent to remind us that God is with us. He is faithful even when we are not. He loves us unconditionally. If you are at that crossroads where your spiritual life is in danger, then I beg you put some effort into it. Start with five minutes a day.  The time to remember that God is Lord, time to read the scripture of the day on your phone it takes five minutes a day. If you have not been to church in weeks, then go to a church. Even if you are not at home, find a church and attend the service. Turn on the Christian music station. Do whatever it takes to keep the water of God flowing in your life. It is so important.

Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,     your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the highest mountains,     your justice like the great deep.     You, Lord, preserve both people and animals. How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!     People take refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house;     you give them drink from your river of delights. For with you is the fountain of life;     in your light we see light.
