There is a window ledge outside my office. Sometimes, as happened a few moments ago, a bird will come perch on the ledge and then run back and forth chirping and chirping. When they do this, they are often facing the office. I do not know for sure what they are doing, but as it is happening I always wonder if they see all the plants inside the window. The plants would certainly be appealing in the winter when the trees outside stand bare.
I know there is a good word from the Lord in this. However, to be honest, this morning I feel like the disciples when they ask Jesus what the parable means. What is the word, Lord? What is the lesson? This is not uncommon for me. While I have posted over 1,700 posts throughout the years just like this one, giving the reader an earthly situation with a heavenly lesson, I also have had dozens that I felt contained heavenly lessons that were not so obvious to me. Usually I just let them go, but today I felt the prompting to share. Perhaps it is to make you think of what God would say to you through it? And there I go trying to make sense of it. When God asked Ezekiel if the dry bones could live, Ezekiel said, “You know, Lord.” Today I am reminded that God knows things I do not know and sometimes that has to be enough for me.
“He asked me, ‘Son of man, can these bones live?’ I said, ‘O Sovereign Lord, you alone know.’”Ezekiel 37:3
