Psalms 46:10

Psalm 46:10 "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."
Rest in the stillness of My Presence while I prepare you for this day. Let the radiance of My Glory shine upon you, as you wait on Me in confident trust. Be still and know that I am God. There is both a passive and an active side to trusting Me. As you rest in My Presence, focusing on Me, I quietly build bonds of trust between us. When you respond to the circumstances of your life with affirmations of trust, you actively participate in this process. I am always with you, so you have no reason to be afraid. Your fear often manifests itself in excessive planning. Your mind is so accustomed to this pattern of thinking that you are only now becoming aware of how pervasive it is and how much it hinders your intimacy with Me. Repent of this tendency and resist it, whenever you realize you are wandering down this well-worn path. Return to My Presence, which always awaits you in the present moment.

I took this from the One Child Campaign and I understood that they had taken it from somewhere else. But, Tues. I needed to read this and now I am posting it here so I won't loose the fresh kick it gives to me.

I am not a Romantic

I never have been; ask my husband. I don't even respond so well to romance. I can't defend it, or apologize for it. It's just the way it is with me. But, lately I have been learning a few things about this subject that makes me squirm. I'm learning that the man who was born in Bethlehem in Judah, who went through unimaginable things to have a relationship with me, this friend, this Jesus, this Father who is in Him, he is romantic. And I am learning to open up a stiff heart to this gift of love...this wonderful new conversation; romance.

Language for me........

Resurrection Day and there are no words for me. I love them,too; that perfect word to communicate just what you are thinking, feeling, seeing, smelling, or hearing. Sometimes your heart is rising, your soul is bursting, and you find it inexpressible, and there are no words. There is no language for joy. This deep down, volcanic erupting, heart flooding knowledge of the Almighty that leaves you dying to express but you can't formulate the phrases, you can't speak the truth of what you know and feel. You can't articulate this, this JOY! Dance, shout,let you heart fly...what else can you do? It is JOY, and it is divine, and it is ours in Christ who has risen and who will see us rise as well one day.
