Pullback

 

 

 

 

We are inextricably linked,

but you cannot see clearly,

and I am lost

 

at risk that I might also lose sight

of you…have already.

 

I feel my light  fading,

is it fading?

God Does Not Roar

This poem was written last Tuesday during my morning quiet time. God’s Word is an inexhaustible wellspring of inspiration.

I consider this a scripture layered poem, as the Holy Spirit while I wrote prompted me with many verses.

Our God is creative, not mute.

Listen for Him, and to Him.

Journeying with Jesus -Into the Wilderness and Beyond

These mornings I continue to journey through the Gospels along with others for Margaret Feinberg’s #LentChallenge and I am thankful for words on pages that come alive with Spirit and Truth. These words I read are forever new as they are read,  if read with a heart that is willing, available…hungry for truth. This morning as I sat and tried to quell the voices and distractions assaulting my mind, a song came to me, and drew me into His presence and out of myself…because out of my SELF is where I need to be to hear Jesus. The song? It’s called Fill My Cup, Lord, and I was introduced to it by a lovely woman of the Word named Connie, many years ago. She gave it to me on a CD she had made with her voice and spirit singing, and it remains a part of my brain’s hard drive to this day.  When I hear it in my mind, it’s always her voice ministering grace and truth to me.

“Fill my cup, Lord-I lift it up, Lord

Come and quench this thirsting of my soul,

Bread of Heaven,  feed me till I want no more

Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole. “

A Treasury of Praise Quotes

 “Praise is like preventative medicine, constantly reminding us of His attributes, character, names and how He relates to our needs. It is a regular tune-up in our understanding of Him so that we are not deceived by lies and misconceptions. Praise focuses on the genuine God so that the counterfeit “gods” of this world are exposed.”

~Fern Nichols/ Moms in Prayer Leader’s Guide

As many of you know I am starting September and my 50th year off with a determination to be praising the days away. Of course you do realize that this means I get to daily experience a test   an opportunity, when I least expect it, that would turn me toward the “oh, so draining” grumbling and complaining mode. But, I am purposing to press the PAUSE button…make that the DELETE button, as soon as I catch myself. Right then and there I turn my Pause into a Praise and let the God who is Faithful set me back on my feet again.
