Cast Up A Highway



A Walk on a Holy Night

Posted on December 22, 2016 at 7:50 AM

I took a little walk today; a walk down Bethl’em way.

Was dusk when I arrived, but noisy chatter was alive.

Many were searching shelter for the night; tired donkeys with heads hanging down

bearing well laden bags of many pounds.

I headed off to the south of town

and found a path on which to veer.

Continuing on until no longer

any noises could I hear. Then

T’was just the star studded sky and i.


A call for stillness halted my feet.

Raising my eyes brought the glory of the night

My heart began to quiet at the marvelous sight.

Sacredness, Oh Holy Night! Yes, it is so sweet!

Not too far off I see a small building;

It’s a stable occupied by more then just crttters.

Indeed leaning against a bale of hay sat a woman

just given birth to a special Son. He is the One.

Indeed a Son of the sweet and the bitter.


For this moment in time, He’s just a sleeping babe.

My eyes will not move from the tender face.

Silent and holy is this night of mine.

No pressure, tis not a race; no raucous laughter

But a holy space grabbed out of time

Beautiful scenes created by the skilled hands of Sharon Burke

I would like to show my thanks to you just for bailing me out of this dilemma. As a result of scouting through the world-wide-web and getting concepts that were not powerful, I was thinking my entire life was gone. Being alive minus the solutions to the issues you have resolved by means of your entire article is a critical case, as well as ones that would have negatively damaged my career if I hadn't encountered your web blog. Your own personal understanding and kindness in dealing with the whole lot was invaluable. I don't know what I would've done if I hadn't encountered such a thing like this. It's possible to at this point look forward to my future. Thank you very much for your specialized and sensible help. I won't think twice to refer your blog post to anyone who requires guidance on this situation.

Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!|

                                        AWESOME GOD


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.
