Sitting around the table talking with friends, and suddenly I looked up. Evening had melted into the full dark of night; stars were indeed thousands of little diamonds against a black velvet sky, and a full moon had come on stage. We felt so called that we rushed down the trail to the boat and onto the river for an uninterrupted view. Drifting in absolute stillness mesmerized by the glory above felt like staring into the universe beyond the stars all the way to face of God. We remained quite awhile allowing the peace and beauty to meld with our souls.
Sometime later we headed back to home base talking quietly about the wonderful gift we had just experienced from God. Awe still filled us as we headed to our cabins to meditate more on the brilliance of our Creator. He fashioned such an amazing place for us to live and grow. Remembering that night helps to calm my spirit when tempests become threatening. . .
Rain, rain, more rain, and now snow? Hey, come on weather it's almost the middle of May! It's suppose to be Spring! Winter, your time is over, more than over! You need to quit fighting with Spring and go to bed for about 6 months! Colorado can be a bit crazy with weather, but I'm sure Spring will wake up fully and bring all its gentle joy soon. That gentleness is a reflection of Gods goodness, and it is calming.
God can be in everything that happens to us. Snow on Mother's Day I thought had rather messed up our plans, but God's plan never gets messed up. He made the snow work for us opening up a reservation for lunch. He knows His plan for my life today and every day.
Life is good with You, Lord, no matter the situations we are in. You share our pains and suffering as well as our joys. You are there to help us. That sounds inane to those who want to believe their minds are too sophisticated to need You. Bless them Lord with Truth. Do you hang out with friends and talk about God, His glory, His gifts, His love for us all? is there yet a hunger in your soul to know Him on a deeper level? Oh my friends, do not waste an opportunity to dig deep into His Word and touch Him! You will never regret it! God's hand is rich in giving~ Love. Peace. Joy. Confidence. Comfort. Solace. Counsel. And much more!.
What are some afraid of? Think they might have to give something up? Nothing is worth missing a closeness with the God of the Universe, who loves us deeply and passionately. He loves us so much He gave His Son to be tortured and die for you and me. Jesus shed blood opens the door to an intimate relationship with God, and that is His wish!
If you are missing out, just tell God of your desire to know Him deeper and He will help you find the way!
