Strong at the Broken Places: A River of Blessing

Ezekiel 47:8-9 “The waters of this stream will make the salty waters of the Dead Sea fresh and pure.  There will be swarms of living things wherever the water of this river flows.” 

A few weeks ago, I went on an amazing hike.  I was in the Smoky Mountains and had a free day to explore.  After doing a quick search on my phone, I found a great trail that took me up a stream as I ascended a mountain.  The beauty was incredible, and I found myself stopping a few times to take in the creation around me.

Strong at the Broken Places: Facing Reality

Ezekiel 3:11 “Go now to your people in exile and speak to them.  Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says,’ whether they listen or fail to listen.”

Sometimes we would rather not face reality.  The other day, a “memory” picture came up on my social media page.  It was from 10 years ago, and as I looked at it, I noticed how much younger and more fit I looked!  All these years, I felt that I wasn’t changing, but one picture made me face reality!
