Your whispers

In our quiet place

Are a symphony.

Jesus, Milk, and Cookies – An Acrostic About Faith

December 20, 2012

TN_biscuit 3

Carrying my milk and cookies to my quiet place

Of refuge from the challenges which seem to be

Organizing themselves for battle against me.

Kill me?  They may try but are unlikely to succeed.

I have my Jesus with me.  He has a plan.

Expecting great things from Him . . .

Staying wrapped in His love.

Please BE QUIET!

May 31, 2012

I admit it.  When I first read this quote, below, I had issues with it.  Please do not feel discouraged by it.  I am sharing it NOT to accuse, but to encourage.  The quote:

All of the troubles of life come upon us because we refuse to sit quietly for a while each day in our rooms.

– Blaise Pascal –

 

Our Lord seeks to take all our “stuff” on Himself!  When I turn to Him, He gives me His peace.  My quiet times with Him are life-giving.  All the challenges of this world do not go away for there are new ones coming along all the time, but when I turn to Him and listen in quiet and simply rest in His loving arms, my challenges no longer overcome me.


Silence – Luxury Or Pilgrimage?

April 11, 2012

A day of silence can be a pilgrimage in itself.

– Hafiz –

If your life is as crazy busy as mine (or even crazier) then you likely think this quote sounds like a dream that would not happen for you, but one you hunger for.  Well, my dear readers, I encourage you to find some time for silence.  My stolen moments of quiet time are so life-giving!  On certain occasions unexpected treats of an hour or so of quiet time come my way, but even just a few short minutes can feed the soul.  It is in these moments of quiet that we find our rest in the Lord and hear His voice!  I used to think I had “too much to do” to set aside time for this pilgrimage, but I have come to realize that I have too much to do  NOT to rest in Him and listen to His voice!
