“God will provide joy, even in the wilderness.”
Hello, my fellow sojourners. Here we are in the middle of holy week. We are counting down in our hearts and minds the days ahead…Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday.
How are you doing?
Are you on track with your Writing to God?
I am, myself walking along in solitary places in my spirit. Feeling a bit stretched tight as Winter clings, and Spring seems distant. This girl who loves snow, and winter is long ready for Spring. Awaiting His breath of faith upon me as well as blossoming buds, blue skies, and birds calling me in the early morning.
Does anyone else find it difficult to keep up at certain times of the year?
September, Spring, and Christmas squeeze more out of me and but for grace, joy and beauty of each, I think I’d just cocoon myself away and wait for the pace of the season to allow breathing time.
But truly peace is available, and He does not depart from those who belong to Him.
Age is on my side, as well.
I fret less over the incidentals of self imposed (or other imposed) expectations.
I seek Him and (mostly) bask in the love and peace He abundantly gives.
The prompt I am sharing from is Enlightening- Jeremiah 31:2-13
I hum through dish washing
keeping time with the beat of my heart-
the joy of my soul,
my heart is light with song,
I rejoice in the mundane.
The routines of my day are dances,
dirty laundry but opportunity
to praise your faithfulness and goodness.
Oh, Lord, I dance through my days
offering up my praise
How you lighten my load-
Though at times I grow weary,
It’s all part of our journey
of grace and mercy.
Oh, Lord- thank you for words. Thank you, The Living Word. Who became flesh. Thank you for your journey to the cross.Lord, you are worthy of praise and glory and honor. At your name every knee shall bow and every tongue confess, on earth and in Heaven- that Jesus Christ is Lord of, all to the glory of the Father. Amen and Amen. Messiah. Chosen One. King of Kings, Lord of Lords, The Great I Am, Emmanuel. Holy is your name…and I praise you. We praise you, Lord.
Worthy is the Lamb.
