    Today's Text and Thought of Encouragement:

    "'I will visit you and keep my good promise to you…for I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you,' says the Lord, 'thought and plans for welfare and peace, not for evil, to give you hope in your outcome.'"

    Jeremiah 29: 10, 11

    Amplified Bible

    "Is the pathway dark and dreary?

    God's in His heaven!

    Are you broken, heart-sick, weary?

    God's in His heaven!

    Dreariest roads shall have an ending,

    Broken hearts are for God's mending.

    All's well! All's well!

    All's …well!"

    John Oxenham

    Today's Study Text:

    "And Elisha said, 'I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me'…(Elisha) took up the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and went back, and stood by the bank of Jordan: And he took the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, 'Where is the Lord God of Elijah?' and when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over. And when the sons of the prophets which were to view at Jericho saw him, they said, 'The spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha.' And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him."

    II Kings 2: 9, 13-1

    EXPLORATION:

    "The Ten-Year Waiting Time"

    "Waiting can be the most intense and poignant of all human experiences which, above all others, strips us of our needs, our values and ourselves."

    V. H. Vanstone

    English Clergyman

    What am I waiting to happen in my life?

    Have I considered the thought that the waiting time I dislike may be heaven's "preparation time" in my life?

    "God can grow a mushroom overnight, but He will take time to grow an oak or a giant sequoia."

    Warren Wiersbe

    God Isn't In A Hurry

    (1994)

    INSPIRATION:

    "Waiting patiently in expectation is the foundation of spiritual life."

    Simone Weil

    Often I have received notes from Transformation Garden readers that ask me how many hours a day I read. With all the quotes that I use each day and the preparation time it takes to thoroughly study the lives of the individuals in the Bible whose lives we are exploring, in-depth, it must appear sometimes that I do spend a great number of hours reading, which is a hobby, by the way, that has been a huge blessing to me throughout my life.

    One thing I have found is that by eliminating much of my television viewing in the evening and on weekends, I've opened up some wonderful free time to explore the pages of a wide-variety of books, both spiritual and what some might refer to as secular.
