Not Lost, But Found

Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth!
Sing out the honor of His name;
Make His praise glorious.
Say to God,
“How awesome are Your works!
Through the greatness of Your power
Your enemies shall submit themselves to You.

(Psalm 66:1-3)

LORD Jesus, we praise You, our Maker and our Savior, for You are our God. Forgive us, O God we pray, whenever we place people or things on the throne instead of looking to the One who has made them all. Let us see Your wondrous and amazing works, and enable us to share with others what You have done in our life. In Jesus’ powerful name we pray. Amen.

I told you on Wednesday that the old iPod was destined to be thrown away, but somehow it got diverted and ended up in the green bucket.

So, what’s the story about the bucket?

I’ll tell you in a minute, but first let me show you a photo of it and some of its contents.

These are some of the things that we are currently storing in the bucket. Can guess its purpose?

The things that go into the green bucket are the most important ones we need in certain situations. We use it, for example, when moving, traveling, or any other important situation in life. Keys, pencil and paper, measuring tape, phone and charger, reminders and relevant letters, subscription/s for medication, etc. These are all things that, while moving home, going on vacation, or preparing for a hospital stay, tend to “disappear” — usually whenever we need them the most.

That’s why we will make use of a bucket, and we will place all the important things inside so they will not get lost but are right at hand. By the way, you could also use a basket, a cardboard box, a plastic bowl, or whatever you dedicate for this sole purpose and I’m sure it will suit just fine. My parents, for example, used their famous “Kaffee-Korb” (coffee basket) and a collapsible plastic box. The coffee tin, milk, sugar, spoons, tea towels, sandwiches and a small cake, and a selection of coffee mugs went into the basket, while the plastic box held the other important stuff like keys, measuring tape, pen and paper and everything else they needed handy while moving home.

All of this reminds me of “The Basket in the Church” — which will be another story I’m going to share with you next week.

Know that God’s Works are awesome forevermore!
