Humility in Endurance

WEEK 4: Enjoying Our Predestined Victory(by sharing)!

Day 26, April 29-30, 2015     {Psalm 19:7-14}
Today is the energy of Humility in Endurance. When we see or experience a work of art we find ourselves in awe of the artist who created it; however, do we also appreciate the Creator who put the eyes in our head to see it? Today, acknowledge God in everything around you: in the fruit you eat, in the sun that shines, in friends that call in the unconditional love of a puppy. It is all God.

~Karen Berg

The energy of today can be conceptualized as the ’splendor of variety’. As such, it points us toward examining details, appreciating the subtleties that differentiate two almost identical things. I am reminded of how farmers understand the microclimates of their fields, how wine connoisseurs can taste a wine and know it’s ‘terroir’ (the special characteristics of geography, geology and climate of a certain place which are expressed in it’s agricultural products). When we delight in the details of variety, we can’t be bored. When we value diversity, we are more inclined to explore, examine, appreciate and accept new experiences, new people, new tastes. Increasing tolerance leads to increasing endurance; we persist in our endeavors when they are more interesting to us!

May the day bring the kind of diversity that leads to ’staying power’!

Scripture Verses For Day 26: 

Amos 9:11-12 (NKJV)

11 “On that day I will raise up The tabernacle of David, which has fallen down, And repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins, And rebuild it as in the days of old;

12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom, And all the Gentiles who are called by My name,” Says the Lord who does this thing.
