They were very dry.

Today's reading: Ezekiel 37-40

He led me all around them; there were very many lying in the valley, and they were very dry. Ezekiel 37: 2 NRSV

Those dry bones in that valley.

Sounds hopeless doesn't it?

When in your life has God sent you to a place of dry bones? What was your first reaction? How did you feel? Were those around you sympathetic?

Did God give you any hope at all in that situation?

Were you able to trust in God's resurrection power?

Ezekiel leaves the situation up to God. He knows that his strength is in prophesying, not resurrection. He waits, trusts, watches, and listens to instructions.

Next time you find yourself in a valley of dry bones, please remember to wait, trust, watch and listen to God's instructions.

God, you are the God of resurrection power. We give you the praise and the glory! Amen.
