Be Still: In the Light of His Presence

“Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.” (Romans 8:27 NKJV)

God is wonderful and amazing don’t you think? Actually don’t you KNOW?!! The sun goes up and goes down every day. The Creator of the heavens and earth gifts us not only with Life (Christ Jesus) but also with the wonderful things upon this earth that He spoke to be.

I took this raw and unedited picture above a little while ago today as I listened to the weather change course. It’s a rain and ice mixture falling down and it sounds like sand. It started to remind me of the countless granular of sand that our Almighty God placed on the earth. Only He knows exactly how many they are just like He knows the very hairs on our heads and every working cell inside our body. Again….. isn’t that amazing.

On a regular basis, we should ask the Lord to search our hearts. May He open us up and allow light to shine into the innermost parts of our being; of our spirit. We may not want the dark areas of our life to be seen but He sees them for they cannot be hidden. There are also lit areas that benefit our growth as well. Both can be used to lift and encourage another through our sufferings and through our joy.

To sit still and invite the presence of the Lord is a welcomed invitation to Him. There is nothing wrong with having some alone time with God even if it’s in the busyness of your day. Setting aside a more intimate time to dwell in His presence is even greater.

Scripture tells us in James 4:8Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”

I find this to be true because I have done so many of times.

Through some of the most simplistic ways God will meet you right where you are. Just quiet your spirit and listen.

Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. (Romans 8:27-30 NKJV)

Be still and KNOW that HE is GOD. (Psalm 46:10)

I hope that you enjoy the song just as much as I have. This is one my favorite songs. It really takes me to a place where it’s just me and God. Nothing around me can disturb me. As I lift up my heart, my hands and my voice, I surrender because without Him I am nothing. All that I am and all that I long for is in Christ. Nothing can be better than that.

Love and Blessings,

Wake Up, Stir Up and Rejoice In the Lord!

Lay it down at the altar. Wrap yourself in the love of the Savior. He watches over you day and night. Sing a new song unto the Lord and don’t worry about who’s looking because it’s ALL ABOUT JESUS. No one can give you everything you need but the Lord. He’s our all and all.

Give it ALL to the Lord! Today is today and tomorrow may never come! Praise The One while you have breath in your body! Mercy and grace has met you today even before you opened up your eyes! 

Raise your hands towards the heavens and sing praises to our Lord! How awesome is OUR GOD?!! Dance and Rejoice in His Name!

“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans8:31 NKJV)

Thank You Lord for blessing us with life even through our difficult times. Blessed be Your Name! Your mercy are anew each and every day. 

We have more reasons than we could ever think of to be thankful to our Savior. Holy Holy and great Thou Art! So many blessings from the Lord has gone unnoticed because we are looking at our storms instead of up and focused on Him and what he has already done in our lives. Let us worship Him in spirit and in truth. Nothing we have done could ever be good or righeous enough. It is His love, his compassion, his mercy and favor that has given us life to see another day. Until he calls us to leave, may we not take for granted that we can worship Him tomorrow; that the storm will pass over through the night and we can thank him then. Tomorrow may never come. Bless Him NOW! Pray that you will draw closer to God each and every day no matter what. He is our Anchor. Bless and worship His holy name. 

Wellspring At His Feet

When you’ve come to that place along your journey, when you just don’t know what’s what, it is at the feet of Jesus you will find peace and understanding.

Make the time to rest in the Lord; GIVE him priority each and every day. Too many times we get caught up in the busyness of life that we don’t slow down and seek His presence. Not just to bring our problems to Him, but to gain some wisdom, discernment, and knowledge. We need intimate time with the Lord for ONLY he can give us what this world can’t.

For me………… it’s my wellspring. It’s my quiet time that I NEED with the Savior. I have to drop everything else and be at his feet, absorbing all that is imparted. I rather be a Mary in a Martha world. ( read Luke10:38-42 )

May my heart over my actions preside; to choose the better part. That’s where I want to be more and more each day. Don’t you? We can’t live in this world and do right without Him.

Welcome Jesus into your day giving of your first-fruits. There’s no time like the present time. He should be first in our planner/agenda book written in ink, not pencil. God has breathed life into you yet another day. How awesome is that?!!

” O Father, I thank you for be a loving father to us all even when we don’t deserve it. It’s by Your grace that we are here. Your precious Son is the Teacher, willing and able to share with us how to live a godly life. By help of Your Holy Spirit we are able to make a decision and choose the better part before the anxieties of this world scoop us up and blindsight us to the blessings in our day. I pray for my friends that they too will draw from the Living Well. No greater refreshing will ever be found. Anoint the heads of Your children that we may go out into a new day shining the Light of your glory. Blessed be your name in all the earth. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen “

Proverbs 16:21-23 NKJV
“The wise in heart will be called prudent, And sweetness of the lips increases learning. Understanding is a wellspring of life to him who has it. But the correction of fools is folly. The heart of the wise teaches his mouth, And adds learning to his lips.”
