HOW BIG IS HIS LOVE

February 20, 2019

When I was a child I never hesitated to run to my Daddy when I needed him, whether I had skinned my knee,was scared by a bug,you name it. I never stopped to wonder if I was a good enough girl, was my problem big enough … I knew his love was more than big enough no matter what I did or didn’t do.  GOD WANTS US TO RUN INTO HIS ARMS THAT SAME WAY!

Alistair Begg:

“Remind yourself every day you get up

and everywhere you go,

‘I am in the presence of God.’”

LOST AND FOUND

October 29, 2018

I fell to my knees

In the darkened space

With no sound but my own breath

But still

My soul heard your voice

And by the light of a single candle

I found The Way

THE SILENT SYMPHONY

May 11, 2018

I strode through the forest

or so I began

seeking silence . . .

seeking peace.

My thirsty soul knew I would find you there,

but I stopped and stood still among the greens,

the light filtering through the branches.

I was surprised by the very loudness of it all.

For I never realized

one could not hear the music,

the loving whispers in my soul,

my own silent hallelujahs,

without quiet surrounding me!

My senses stirred as never before

as I tasted your wine

and basked in the aroma

that is you.

My empty hands knew

that yours held mine

and the beauty .. .

your Light drew me in

as never before.

I am you – you are me,

we are one!

HOLEY WHOLY HOLY – BLANKETED IN HIS LOVE

April 27, 2017

When I was very small  I had a green blanket on my bed.  To anyone but me, it was nothing special at all.  After I had it for a while, it was full of holes, but Mama knew not to replace it.  As I tried to sleep at night, I would suck my fingers on one hand and hold my green blanket with the other, all the while rubbing the fuzz with my fingers.

 

Poor Mama must have constantly swept my bedroom floor of all the fuzz and my special blanket was surely less warm than it had been . . . to Mama.  Not to me, for my heart was reminded of how much I was loved and how safe I was simply by being wrapped in it.

 

The blanket was not magic and Mama, though neither she nor I could truly know my heart, left it with me until I outgrew it.  I know now, but not then, that there is just one source for the love I felt and that God is the source. He was also the one who knew my heart then as now.  I am older now and do not need the blanket, but the little girl I was  still lives inside me and she STILL  feels blanketed in Abba’s love.

 


REFLECTING ON THE CROSS

April 7, 2017

The REAL Joy

reflecting on the crossI enjoy the applause.

Admiration is nice for a time

but,

my lasting joy

is reflecting the Lord in all I AM and do.

I am nothing without His love.

YES, LORD!

You Are The Potter

Sometimes I just need to call out to Abba and He is always there when I do . . . and when I do not.  He knows my every need.  How amazing is that love?

Deuteronomy 31:8
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.

Joshua 1:9
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

Psalm 119:76
May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant.

John 14:1
Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me
