TODAYS VERSE

Ephesians 3:19
And to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

BE STILL!


I am here. I am listening, I am loving you, I am being patient, I am trying to give you peace. I have sent you sunshine as my smile, I have sent you birds that sing as my choir, I am sending you rain for you to feel the emotion I have for you and the tears I shed for you. I LOVE YOU!

God loves us so much and yet sometimes we are rushing through our days so quickly that we forget to sit and be still and listen to Him. We ignore the sunshine saying, "it's too hot, I don't want to be outside", we curse the rain saying, "it's keeping me from going out and doing what I want to do", we do not notice the birds singing and chanting for us and say, " Honey, cool off the car and then we'll run and get in it".

Take your time to notice the sunshine, the birds and the rain. God made them so they are spectacular in their own rights. If we take time to really BE STILL, and look around us at all the splendiforous things He created for us, He might be alittle more receptive to our whining about all the other mundane things we should just let go of.

Comments:
I really needed that with all the busy schedules and school ending. It couldn't have been better timing. It's raining outside right now and when I read that, I thought about what it meant and then everything just went blank. Next time it's miserably hot, I won't complain about it. I'll think about the bird as music instead of a nusence while I'm reading.
 
Jakeb, you are a wonderful young man and I am so proud to call you family. Sometimes, God has to really slap me across my face to get my attention and He did it today. :>)
