You may not believe this, but some days I have few words. In my eternal quest for wisdom, I know I’m getting it when my words run out. It’s in the silence that God breathes, readies our minds, and speaks. When I let my words run out, it makes more room for His. As you are reading this, let my words run out . . . and hold this paper in silence for a few moments . . .
. . .
. . .
And take His words in:
“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.” Zephaniah 3:17
“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.” John 15:9
“The Lord will fight for you; you need only be still.” Exodus 14:14
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.” 1 Corinthians 13:4
"It is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose." Philippians 2:13
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye. shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” Matthew 7: 7.
God wants to talk to you. If you’re trying to figure it all out all the time like me, give it a try: quit trying to figure it out and let Him show you, tell you, and guide you.
See you at the watering hole.
