sleeping

Do you ever have trouble sleeping?  I sometimes do.  I never did as a child.  If I close my eyes right now, by day, I can still recall the soft murmuring of Mama and Daddy talking in the other room.  I didn’t always understand what they were saying, but I felt safe and loved and knew everything would be okay and felt their comforting nearness as I drifted off to sleep.   I am not that innocent little girl anymore but whether I am feeling alone or not, my Abba is always near and loving me too!  All I need to do is let go, let Him take care of me, and rest knowing He will never abandon me . . . just like my earthly parents never did.

Droplets of water

Falling, falling, from the sky

You nourish dry ground

and provide restoration!

New life, new hope – praise, rejoice!

We struggle with our faith having read much, attended church services, etc. Consider the 12 named followers of Christ, His apostles, who dropped everything and said yes when He said “follow me” and with NONE of the information we possess. REMARKABLE.


Daily Retreat?

September 22, 2014

Quiet times with the Lord should not be considered a luxury which we hope to fit in, but instead a necessity to begin the day with.  A retreat . . . a meal for a hungry soul.  A retreat is livegiving but need not seem unattainable!  One can take place in our own livingroom, in our favorite chair . . . simply by getting up a little earlier.  The difference it will make in our day, in our life, is beyond description!   Try it!
