Today's story is one my dad used often on the mission field. Elijah had just finished a mountain top experience, defeating thousands of prophets of the false god, and successfully praying for the end of a 3 year drought. After that, coming down from the high, he was ready to die.
God took care of him, watching over him while he slept, and feeding him several times, preparing him for a long trip to God's mountain where he heard God's plan for the future of Israel. Dad's lesson was that after you have an experience that wrings you out, you need to take time to recharge in order to continue your ministry.
Do you see the food and water in the background?
We decorated outside for maybe the 2nd or 3rd time since we have lived in the house. Doesn't it look nice?
Happy 3rd Sunday of Advent: Joy to you!
