Day 19: Be Still


I kept waking up in the middle of the night

with an excitement to write this morning.

I felt

GOD nudging me to get up

because

HE had something to say to me.

So here I sit with nothing to say.

Maybe just maybe

GOD was nudging me to come to be

STILL WITH HIM.

So here I sit in the darkness~

"Here I am GOD."

I showed up. It really is quite simple,

yet I want so much more than just to be still

especially when

all you hear is the nothingness around you

or the ringing in your ears if you are like me,

as it becomes more annoying as I think about it.

Distractions & Interruptions

in the

STILLNESS

in the

COME TO ME

moments

when

All you want is

GOD

because you know that

All you need is

GOD.

HE tells us~

"You will seek ME and find ME when you seek ME with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:13

So you do and what happens when

HE is no where to be found in the

stillness

that HE calls you to?

But maybe, just maybe it is because we aren't

SEEKING GOD

as we are

SEEKING what GOD can do for us.~

GOD change this & GOD change that.

GOD give me this & GOD give me that.

GOD take away this & GOD take away that.

And yes

GOD does want us to ask, as isn't that what prayer is~

To empty our hearts to HIM so that HE can fill them?

But maybe just maybe

GOD just wants us to show up

because

HE showed up~

"Very early in the morning, while it was still dark,

JESUS got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place,

where HE prayed." Mark 1:35

JESUS showed up to be alone with GOD

But not just once~

"And HE went a little beyond them, and fell on HIS face and prayed, saying, "MY FATHER, if it is possible, let this cup pass from ME; yet not as I will, but as YOU will." Matthew 26:39

But not just twice~

"HE went away again a second time and prayed, saying, "MY FATHER, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, YOUR will be done." Matthew 26:42

But a third time~

"So HE left them, went away again, and prayed the third time,

saying the same words." Matthew 26: 44

JESUS PRAYED

to the ONE who sent HIM

to be with us so we can

BE STILL & SEEK GOD~

"OUR FATHER

in heaven , hallowed be YOUR name..." Matthew 6:9

So here I sit with nothing to say

because

HE

always has so much more to say

to this little heart of mine & to your little heart

when we just show up

because

HE

always does.

Let's make

JESUS MORE THAN A RESOLUTION

and

just show up.
