|One of my favorite sized journals!
The bee will not sit on a flower that has no nectar.
Neither should the Christian entertain a thought that does not feed his spirit.

I am sharing from this little journal, which happens to be a favorite. But, then they all are in due season!
One of the reasons I named my blog “Beneath The Surface: Breath of Faith is because
I know and realize that although we live and move in the real world, in time.
We have our being in Him: The hidden unseen life.
This is truly where the action is that is important.
Yes we log what we do in journals and diaries.
But, more often we are tracking the very life of God in us…or lack of His presence, perhaps?
I know because I have journals dating back BC (Before Christ).
I have evidence of who I am apart from Him.
This entry bears a date but what I did on this day is not recorded here.
Instead the secret life that is unseen by all but Him who knows all
bears witness on these pages.
The battle wages on…beneath the surface.
Saturday April 14, 2007
Lord… I really wish I understood what it means to be confident in you.
I really wish I knew without a shadow of a doubt
that I should or shouldn’t make this choice or that.
I wish I knew, lord, how to really sense your leading
and discern your way and perfect path for me, Dawn,
with clarity, confidence and peace.
I wish, Lord, I could let my yes be yes and my no be no.
I wish I could know, Lord, that place you want me to serve.
I wish I knew that I was pleasing You in all I do,
not just bumbling around.
Lord, help me with right priorities
as I seek to simplify my life…
yet continue to complicate it.
Help me to be available to those you really want me to be…
I know, Lord, my selfishness and pride
still need to be diminished.
There is still too much of Me in the equation.
But, Lord, this also is hard for me…
help me to be the me that is a blessing
to Angelo, Katherine and others.
Lord help me to be who you truly created me to be.
Show me these things, Lord.
Lord, I know I get busy planning my days and life but I also know
You are above all.
Help me choose right.
Well, friends. Reading this entry from my journal reminded me of the song
A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes!
It is amazing when we look back and can see how faithful God has been.
I could pray this prayer now, but I will say, God has granted me
my wish/prayers in many ways-
He has been faithful to hear these heart cries.
