Day 26: Morning Breakthrough
I love the SILENCE of the morning,
as distractions are still sleeping
as it is just little 'ole me being every so quiet,
which is a miracle in itself,
the SILENCE is filled
with the STILLNESS
that greets me
as I have a date with GOD.
My hubby does not get jealous,
as he is actually the one who always encourages
me to continue my dates with GOD,
because he knows that I become my best self
when I am in the PRESENCE of GOD.
Oh what a GIFT to sit with GOD
because GOD will never deny a seat to be with you.
As I sit here in the STILLNESS
I am picturing what it would be like
if I could see GOD sitting next to me
and JESUS sitting on the other side of me.
I see them reclining back
in PERFECT PEACE
and laughing to one another
with such JOY
that makes me embrace the silence.
I don't have to say anything
as just THEIR PRESENCE sandwiches me with
PERFECT PEACE that has no words
because it transcends all understanding.
I don't want to leave this
PLACE OF STILLNESS
as it feels so safe,
even though I can't see THEM.
I TRUST that THEY are here,
because TRUST believes in the unseen
that lives in every moment
that lives within me,
hugging me with A PERFECT STILLNESS
that never leaves
even when the distractions of life begin to wake up~
"for the LORD GOD is with you wherever you go" (Joshua 1:9).
HE is the STILLNESS in the noisy world
that touches the core of your being
that awakens your soul
to the LOVE that surrounds you
no matter where you are.
Oh the sweet spot
PERFECT PEACE meets PERFECT JOY
that puts distractions to rest
because you become at rest
when you take the time to
"BE STILL & KNOW THAT GOD IS GOD"*
Even when the sounds of the day get louder
THE STILLNESS OF GOD
takes first place
when you choose to give
GOD first place.
when the unseen becomes so visible~
"You love HIM even though you have never seen HIM.
Though you do not see HIM now, you trust HIM;
and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy" (I Peter 1:8).
Pull up a chair.
Actually pull up three chairs.
Sit in the middle one
and leave the other two for
GOD & JESUS
who will show up
leave you speechless
as you become so filled with
that you never want to leave,
yet never ever have to,
as your every
that is GIFTED to you today
will be laced with an overwhelming
STILLNESS that will continue to
overwhelm the distractions
that wake you up in the morning
that get you running before your feet touch the ground,
as HE stops you in your tracks
when you take the moment
to do the one thing that is the only thing~
"BE STILL AND KNOW THAT GOD IS GOD" *(Psalm 46:10)
so that you are always at
(listen to the song below)
