The Lost Silver

In Luke 15:7, it states “Or what woman, if she has ten silver coins and loses one coin, does not light a lamp and sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it?”  While studying this, I began to think about what she might have uncovered while sweeping her entire house.  As I thought of this, I was reminded what it looks like when I clean out my closet and  until it is finished, it is a mess.  Then I remembered the feeling after I complete the job or after the lost piece of silver is found!  In reality, only Good is going on!  We are just searching for that lost piece of silver and it will be found.  My heart stays filled with love and gratitude.

The Lame Man

This morning I have been studying Acts 3:1-8.  It is the story of Peter and John going into the temple at the hour of Prayer and encountering the lame man asking alms of them.  They responded there was no silver or gold, but healed him instead!  This is so often the case as I pray and outline what I think I need, and God always has so much more in store for me.  Are we expecting a full demonstration as we pray or are we limiting our Good?
