“The Word became flesh and blood and moved into the neighborhood.” (John 1:14, Message)

Using the skills taught in pharmacy school to read physician handwriting, I tried to depicter my own hurried marks. Here’s what I could read:
God is in this season
This is not the way I had my life mapped out
Revealing the character of God
Remember and recall the details
Tell the story of what God did
This is my prayer: “Jesus, thank you for taking on human form to align with my suffering. Thank you for moving in the neighborhood of Earth and of my heart.
Thank you for reminding me you are in THIS season. While this is not how I had my life mapped out; you have a provision already in place (A Ram in the Thicket).
Help me to have the patience to wait while you deliver the answers and provision I need. Thank you for revealing the trustworthy character of who you are; sovereign, good, faithful, and a perfect provider. Thank you for moving into the neighborhood of my life transforming my situation for your glory. Amen.”
What situation do you need to invite Jesus to move into the neighborhood of your life?
