This morning it took a little while
before I was able to break through the “fog” and the distractions…
It happens sometimes.
I like to sit at my dining room table in the mornings, facing the window.
My bible and journal open before me,
a pen in hand…
I like to sit and wait,
while sitting in the light of the sun rise. ☀️
Ready to see and hear and absorb…
what the Lord is speaking into my heart for the day. 💖☀️
There are many times, when I first sit down at the table,
that it seems “unlikely”, and sometimes near “impossible” that anything would surface.
But how He surprises me,
when He fills my heart with words that seem to overflow. 💖⛲️🎶
How He helps me to find, to discover…
to hear the “song” that He has planted within my heart for the day.
And sometimes it’s very uncomfortable
for me to write and to share so publicly…
But how I’ve grown to love this daily adventure with Him. 💗
“…My thoughts are filled with beautiful words for the king, and I will use my voice as a writer would use pen and ink.“—Psalm 45:1 CEV
This morning as I was sitting here at the table,
I imagined Jesus sitting in the chair before me, facing me…
I imagined, as I stretched out my hand, He was also reaching out His, toward mine.
I looked down at my hand, open to receive whatever He has for me.
The gesture made me think of,
“relationship, friendship, hand-in-hand together, Him leading and empowering me…”
“Lord Jesus, how can I partner with You today?”
I looked down at my open bible, where I imagined He and I joined hands…it was open to Psalm 66:16,
“Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will declare what he has done for my soul.“
(Yes, Lord. I hear You. 💖)
And then I felt these simple words of instruction within my heart—a sweet and simple reminder of a similar thing He spoke to me when I felt the nudge to begin writing on here publicly a few of years ago.
(Perhaps this is not only just a reminder for me…)
“Take My hand,
I give you what you need!
In faith, walk with Me.
…and just watch and see (and marvel)
at what I will do—yes, through YOU!”
“And He said to them, ‘Follow Me [as My disciples, accepting Me as your Master and Teacher and walking the same path of life that I walk], and I will make you fishers of men.’”—Matthew 4:19 AMP
Lord Jesus, hand-in-hand with You, I will declare what You have done for my soul, I will “sing” the “song” You’ve placed within my heart, I will share the story, of what You continue to do as You are taking me “though” this journey with You! Thank You, Lord, for teaching us through Your Word… of how we can partner with You in what You desire to do!
And we will marvel at what we see You do, as we continue to trust in You…✨
