Restoration, redemption, faith, blessing in the moments, words of life.
My pondering this morning…
The sunlight streams across the page , the air is cool and crisp, the birds and squirrels alive in their morning hallelujahs.
Songs of a new day that is born, seeking the blessings and abundance before them for just this moment, this day, no worry for what’s next. Working with the surety that the Father has provided, with no effort, all they need. They only awaken with the wonder of the sunlight.
Sunlight…that’s a funny thing….all is silent until the sun streams in. As if there is such new life in the sun. And not a small amount…but an abundance of life, joy and excitement!
What a sweet reminder of all that is given to me today. The provision, the abundance is there daily. You Papa just want me to see the joy in the new day, in the daily. That unexpected blessing that can only come from You. There is such peace and ease in that surrender.
You lead me here to the still, peaceful, quiet waters of your Presence. A place where perfect peace casts out all fear, a place where there is surrender.
Making me lie down,
To be tucked in that secret and quiet place You hold only for me.
Here, in this still place, I can drink from where you have me, drink from the love and grace you offer, from the healing you died for and for the comfort this safe place provides. You give me a respite from life, from stress, from the world. A place where Your voice is louder than the chaos I call life.
Here I can breathe in deeply, filling and expanding my lungs with clean air, air that pushes out fear, shame, regret and anxiety. Air that brings fresh new life into dead and dying places, air that truly restores. Pushing the oxygen of Your life-breath into my bloodstream to flow to my mind and body…life-blood of healing, recovery and transformation. As if now, in this place, my heart beats easier and stronger.
Bravery and boldness begin to rise.
Dense fog that has clouded my vision clears and I emerge from this resting place, sun in my face, with a new awareness of its warmth and light.
My heart is so gently stirred.
Ever so slightly at first, but now the move is confident and sure, full of faith, knowing and trusting the Director of the direction. Clearer understanding of the peace of faith, the journey, not the destination, of faith.
A clearer course now set
Today…be thankful for the journey, for the never-ending love and grace, for the unexpected blessings and even unexpected trials for in all the goodness of the Father’s heart is there.
Psalm 23:6 “Your beauty and love chase after me everyday of my life. I’m back home in the house of God for the rest of my life.” (the Message)
