Soul Food

My mind can only know so much.

It is only when my soul is fed

that my life is forever changed.

DISCOVERED JOY

August 17, 2014

Sometimes . . .

You have to listen really closely

To hear the music in the silence.

But, once you hear it,

Your heart will never forget its song.

Trust In Him

\darkness

I look out my window

Yet see nothing.

Darkness has consumed . . .

but, wait!

Have things really changed?

Is the grass no longer green?

. . . the trees no longer tall?

Will the sun I cannot see

Truly never shine again?

My soul,

Though wrestling fear’s attempt to overtake

Is opting instead for some needed rest.

Day has gone

And night indeed has fallen.

Morning’s sun will

Like my spirit rise

And I restored,

Once again will follow

and reflect the Light!

Answering His Call

August 13, 2014

It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.

A Word For Monday

August 11, 2014

 

The Lord placed this word on my heart today: Using our minds, we have done a fabulous job of nearly destroying the world around us and one another. Time to go deeper!

sunshine

The blazing sun brightens my day.

Warnings of unseen clouds bringing storms

do not dampen the sunflower’s smile or my own.

Where Shall I Dwell?

July 24, 2014

The Lord keeps placing the following scripture on my heart so I decided to share it.  Blessings to you.

Psalm 91 King James Version (KJV)

 

91 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.


Surrender

gate

What is that glow

which lies beyond the gate?

Two steps away,

it beckons.

Dare I enter?
