“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” (James 1:17, NIV)
God is so good to send the rains and to then perfect if with His creation enjoying His life-giving light.
Every breath we draw, every word we speak and every new day we are blessed by the gifts from the Father above who knows our needs before we ever voice them. What a joy to serve a God who enjoys His children! I imagine His great delight as He waters the Ugandan soil and then watches His precious people pause to thank Him for providing their daily bread.
Prayer: Dear God, may I never take Your countless blessings for granted! May You make the ground fertile for spiritual harvest in Uganda and in my own neighborhood. Amen.

This devotional moved me deeply when I read it this week. As many of you may know, The Lulu Tree is a ministry in which I am involved and love greatly. Recently there was a storm in Uganda that destroyed most of the maize gardens in the village including our School of Hope garden. We would be ever so grateful if you would join us in prayer or feel to give.
