Bee Rescued 

Posted by Pastor Ron Saturday, October 01, 2011 8:23:00 AM

This morning I saw a bee clinging to the outside of our kitchen window. She obviously didn't make it home to the safety of the hive and had spent the night alone, cold and out of gas.

I coaxed her into a measuring cup and put in a drop of DaVinci Toasted Marshmallow syrup. I wasn't sure exactly what flavor she would prefer but that is the latté flavor of the day every day so that is what she got.

The measuring cup was topped with a tea screen and soon she began to warm up and started drinking the  syrup. Shortly thereafter she begged to be released back to her hive obligations.

'Please let me go I pray thee kind captor.'

She flew away directly with astonishing speed knowing exactly where to go and the necessity of getting there as quickly as possible. I wonder what stories she danced when she arrived home and if I will find her sisters looking through my kitchen window at the giant bottle of delicious DaVinci Toasted Marshmallow syrup made with real sugar and zero high fructose corn syrup.

God rescued me when I was outside in the cold far away from Him. I was literally without God and without hope in the world. I didn't find God and wasn't really even aware that I was being rescued when He found me, brought me into the family of God, warmed me up with His love and fed my starving soul with His wonderful Words of Grace.

Unlike my rescued bee I did not and will not fly away from Him. But I will try to direct others to His wonderful supply of soul sustaining sustenance. Would you like to be rescued?
