Year For Exuberance

Posted on January 13, 2016 at 6:40 AM


This cold weather reminds me of growing up in the Mid West. In the cold of winter, the dark of night would fall early. Sometimes Freddie’s Dad would build a bonfire in their back yard. It drew us kids like a bear to honey. As the blaze grew hotter we would run home to beg a potato from our Moms. Have you ever eaten a fire roasted potato? Yum! Good! We would drop it into the flames and roll it around with a stick so it cooked all over. As the dancing flames kept the cold at bay, our mouths would salivate waiting for our treat to be ready. Nothing seems to excite children like a fire. It’s a pretty mystery when kept in control.


I remember the feelings that surrounded those nights, and the eager anticipation of our potato treat. It seems not much compares with it as an adult. Then I think about the gift of relationship our God offers us. There is nothing to compare with being in His Presence, at peace in quiet joy. True there is not the exuberance of childish glee, but the smiles of our God and the resulting joyful feeling knowing He is with me and loving me, brings a big smile to my face!


It seems today many have forgotten God. Life filled with jobs, worry, cab duties for kid's unceasing activities, house cleaning, meal preparations, clothes washing, relationships if their is time. . . not much 'time' left for meeting with our God and building the most important relationship that exists today. Time, again. It keeps running like the rabbit in Alice in Wonderland: “I’m late! I’m late for a very important date!” That was almost a foretaste of today’s life. But for me, I refuse to be captured into a life without my relationship with God.


My body clock usually wakes me between 5:00 and 6:00 AM. This affords me the opportunity for a good meeting with my Creator. There is so much to cover with Him, and He has much to teach me; it seems like a kinda rhythm dominates and it's only minutes we are together.

How I love our sharing time! My friend, try enhancing this new year by setting an appointment each day to meet with Your Heavenly Father who loves you more than you can imagine. Life takes on excitement inside when you come to realize the purpose and direction God has for you. The book Cast Up A Highway can help you to build an intimate relationship with Him.

Psalm 91:1-2

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High

Will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty

[whose power no enemy can withstand].


2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,

My God, in whom I trust [with great confidence, and on whom I rely]!”


If your life is missing some “childish exuberance”, I challenge you to bring more of God’s love into it! Blessings for an exuberant new year my friends!

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
