The power behind imagination

“With God’s power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or imagine.  To him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus for all time, forever and ever. Amen.”        Ephesians 3:20-21 NCV

When a dog has special needs, it can be difficult to place that dog in a permanent home. Trooper came to NBRAN (a Brittany rescue organization) full of heartworms, He lost one eye and the vet said he’d soon lose the other. He’d need special placement in a loving forever home. But who’d want to care for a blind dog?

Volunteers at NBRAN worked hard to find him just the right place. He now lives a happy, healthy life with his mom and a Brittany brother, Murphy. Murphy looks out for his brother, helping him navigate and even teaching him to look out the window and bark in the right direction at things he can’t see.

By banding together, these volunteers can do much for these needy dogs. It seems the needier the dog, tha harder they work to save him!  It doesn’t matter what he looks like or what problems he has, they are there for him, doing what they can with their pooled resources. And this morning I want to thank them because they helped place a special needy older Brittany named Danny with us two years ago.

But if a group of volunteers can do so much for the dogs they love by working together, just think of how much a loving God, with all heaven’s resources, can do for us as his power works in us!  And just imagine what we can do together  to help the lost, the poor and needy in our world as his power works through us.

Lord, thank you for this awesome vision this morning. Now make it happen through me. Amen.
