More From Brian Foster

I took this picture recently. Coincidentally, it hasn’t bloomed in the past year and is just now blooming at the time of the devotion being published. God’s time? I think so! I’m so thankful to my neighbors Mike and Lynn for the thoughtful gift. When I see the orchid blooming, I think fondly of my dad and mom, and it always makes me smile. But it’s also a reminder that God’s time may not be our time. God’s time is perfect and will generate our own “life-blooms” when God is ready.

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”

Join us every Monday and Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. (CST) for prayer and worship on Facebook Live.
