Just Breathe

Breathe in:
Father, you love and accept me,

๐Ÿƒ

Breathe out:
All the time, no matter what.

 

Dear friends, I hope this anchors your souls and lifts your spirits.

~Romans 8~

I Need You

Father, it is so easy for me to drift from you – to forget that you are all I need, that You are the One who will satisfy all those empty spaces I clamor to fill. …….Thank you for your faithful and patient presence in my life – always drawing me back with your comforting staff. .

I need you. I really need You.

Lead me to those green truths my soul is lacking, so I can feast and lay hold of You that much more. May You increase, and may what I think โ€œIโ€ need become less important.
To You be the glory.
Amen.

 

When You Feel Alone

Relationship

He made us in His image

So we could understand

A measure of His Pearson

Thus, more closely to Him stand.

๐Ÿƒ

When walls came down to separate,

He came in and tore the veil

And with it also tearing fear –

His furious love wonโ€™t fail.

๐Ÿƒ

The Word gave spoken language,

And through itโ€™s threads the written letter

So we could read His heart and mind

And get to know Him better.

๐Ÿƒ

He was not content with just our move

From Hell to Heaven only;

He placed us in Him and He in us,

True intimacy- never lonely.

๐Ÿƒ

What can we say to such great Love!

Could anything be better?

Humankind has many longings,

Which He meets perfectly to each letter.

When You Think Youโ€™re Not Worthy

I think we have all felt that way – like God is distant. But really, it is we who move, shift, and drift – and He understands. He just wants our companionship and loves to hear us. So, may I encourage you with this:

What is the most important part of prayer?

COME

โ€œTherefore let us come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our times of need.โ€

It is Hard to Be a Mother

. .

What is hard for me right now is that push/pull in my mind and heart. My kids are both on the edge of the nest – and I have all the assortment of emotions that go along with that precarious place. I find that I want to pull them back in and yet also I want to give them a push…..and in a whole other assortment of ways I do both – mostly in my own head with worry. …..and I guess I just realized that all those fears are exactly why I am finding it โ€œhard.โ€

๐ŸƒHow about you? What are you struggling with or how have you dealt with my situation? Would love to hear about you ๐Ÿƒ

“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death” Phil 3:10
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Fellowship of Suffering ~ A Divine Exchange

Open my eyes to clearly see;
the path You took of humility.

Bend my ears to every sound;
Your silence cried out when beaten down.

Enhance my taste to every good
that joy in pain You understood.

Train my scent and oil my prayer –
a sweet smelling savor to break that snare.

Then full my arms to Thee embrace
as I fellowship in sufferings face to face.

~~~~~~~~~~

“Consider Him who endured such contradiction of sinners against Himself, lest you be weary and faint in Your mind.” ~Hebrews 12:3

Lord Jesus, thank You that You have made it possible for us to fully know You. We *want* to fully know you as you have fully known us – help us to take advantage of this gift. .

Help us, amidst all the distrations we have, to sit at Your feet and allow Your Spirit to show us wondrous things from Your words – things that our *own* eyes and ears cannot perceive. There, may Your glory transform us like the sun transforms the spring bud – opening it’s purpose. While open, move us, dear Lord, to spill all of value and “waste” it at Your feet, wiping it with our hair. .

May this fill the broken world with the fragrance of Your glory, and leave our fellow man with a wonder and a thirst that You are very ready to fill.

Because……….of You, and through You, and to You, are all things. And to You be the glory for ever. Amen.
