I barely have time to catch a breath or stuff food down my throat at times...
Ive learned to cherish the mornings of waking early, where I can lay in my bed with the lamp turned on..my Bible open into my hands, in perfect solitude.
A moment of stillness. Of peace. I hear the birds start to wake and as I look out the window, I see the morning rays start to lighten the sky.
My heart opens even more to the word of God. As my eyes glance across His words, I can feel the Holy Spirits presence. Words I couldnt understand before, couldnt soak in, in my rushing state, I can now understand. I pause over some of His words, their meaning having a personal impact to me and my life. My walk with Christ. As I read the last words in Isaiah this morning, I saw such a loving God.
A God that wants me..and you so much in His life. If I didnt take these moments of solitude, I wouldnt be where I am now. I wouldnt have my walk with Christ as I should.
As I knelt on my cold, wooden floor, and clasped my hands together in fervant prayer, I felt His presence with me. I wasnt alone. Im never alone. To be still. I need these times to survive the hards times ahead. The times I need to trust in Him that He will take care of me. That He knows whats best for me. My dear friends, I couldnt tell you enough, how much our Lord loves us. How much He loves you. He yearns and calls out to us to be still..to spend time as I have done. To stop racing for a moment..and spend time with Him. To read the promises He has given you. The love He shares. The words ever reminding us of how important we are to Him.
He just wants us to be still..
We have to understand that we cant always do things our way, but of Gods way. If we normally spend our lives our way, rushing about, even in worship, we will never know the true meaning of Gods love..and have that true connection that we need, to make it until He comes. To be awake and not asleep. To be able to hear Him when He speaks to us..for He will, if we just pause for a time and are willing to listen.
There are too many out there, including the old me, who are always rushing, never slowing down..never listening.
So take moment starting to today..to be still..and know that He is God.
What I really look for are those who are humble and penitent in spirit, who listen in awe to my word and are eager to do my bidding.
"They've made up their minds to do it their way because they like to worship their way they want to. I need to discipline them. I will do so by bringing disasters on them, the very things of which they're so afraid.
Because when I called to them, no one answered. When I spoke, no one listened. They closed their ears and continued to do evil."
Isaiah 66:3,4(partial of 3)
