We hope this becomes a dependency. Strange thing for a therapist to say. But we are dependent on God for life and peace and joy. Spending time with Him every day (imagining these vignettes) will enhance your life and growth as nothing else can.


Misinformation about God is rampant out there today. This is good stuff--agreeing with the best interpretation you can put on Scripture.


  Below, Love's Playbook, Arla's new series, is the first interpretive version of the Bible -- it's God's love story like you've never read it--written to keep you reading! (Images are Amazon linked )

"What do we have?" asks Jesus, "Find out."

Soon Andrew is back, "There is a boy who hasn't eaten his five pitas and two little fish, But that's nothing!"

"Bring him to me," Jesus says, "and have the people sit down in groups of 50."

He smiles at the boy they bring, "How about sharing your lunch with all of these?" he asks with a sweeping gesture.

Eagerly the boy nods, looking skeptical and awed, and they all watch as Jesus looks up, holding the little lunch, thanking God for providing, and then begins breaking the barley pitas and dried fish and giving them to the disciples to give to the people. It is simple distribution and common food. Jesus knows God has led him into this situation and he depends completely on Him to supply the necessity.

He could have asked Abba to provide a feast, but he used what they had and asked God to bless it. Never did food taste so good as that simple every-day food.

Of course, people want to take some to their families and friends and tell their wonderful experience. So Jesus has his helpers pick up the leftovers so nothing will be wasted; they fill that lunch basket and 11 other empty ones!

God is generous--physically as well as spiritually. If you're working with Him, ask and listen; then trust and use what you have. It may not seem to be enough, but through giving you will receive. If you're working with Ruach, He will supply what you need from His abundance. You will always have enough to be generous.*

Matthew 14:16-21, Mark 6:38-44, Luke 9:13-17, John 6:9-13 *Philippians 4:19, 2Corinthians 9:6-11
