Sometimes things just happen…. in an interesting way. And that’s about all we can say about the situation, in that moment.

4.4.2020 – Tender Hearts

This morning the Lord brought to mind a memory from last February, and so I went and found my journal from around that time to see what I had recorded. It was around the time I had fallen.

How can we comfort one another in these kinds of times? We can find comfort by dwelling with Him in His Word, and reminding one another of His promises.

4.1.2020 — “Be Still, Cease Striving, Stop Your Fighting, Calm Down, Be in Awe…”

This morning I simply heard, “Be still…” But this “be still” had a “…” to it. A knowing that something should come after it, that something should follow it. A little later came… “…and remember (see, know, realize, grasp) that I Am God.” This comes from Psalm 46:10, and I love comparing the wording of… Read More 4.1.2020 — “Be Still, Cease Striving, Stop Your Fighting, Calm Down, Be in Awe…”
