Hearts Perspective…

The weariness of fighting the feeling comes and goes…there’s always a pining to return…A yearning that  nags quietly in the mind enticing me back to familiarity. Fleeing to embrace the known. The simplicity of living in the comfortable perimeters of life without feeling the pinch of sadness on a daily basis is attractive. I find myself sighing…contemplating the calling that was so clear on my life. He gave me words indicating the exact geographical area in which I now live. He lead through pictures when I bowed my head and fell silent at the foot of His cross. He whispered promises that are coming to fruition. So what do I do in my weakness…

I remember…

And repent that I lost sightLost sight of His goodness

The heart is stilled before the King and I breathe in what only He can give.

I gain perspective and give thanks for His leading to the place where I’m now …that he went before and I followed obediently. I reflect on my heart that was full of joy and excitement at living in a foreign land where I could be His hands and feet.

Isn’t it true that in my weakness He is strong…

Rejoice in my weakness and give thanks, for He holds my life in the palm of His hands.

I prayed with all my might that He would

Use me,

Shape me,

Guide me,  

Dwell in me richly so I would manifest His light and love…

It comes to me as I reflect- life has its turns where unpredictability plays a seen in a small drama that needs not to be feared of or shied away from…

True love drives out all fear   

“I am leaving you a gift-peace of mind and heart. And that peace I give isn’t like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” (John 14:27

His presence starts to dance within…The feeling is met with gratefulness. I made an oath to my Creator that will not change when emotion sets in. He has given an unimaginable power that can achieve and conquer for His purpose. 

The seas may roar but the calling is stronger then waves of emotion.

I rise on His wings and soar above the tears and quiet moments… He will never leave nor forsake me.

I realize that my eyes need not to focus on self but rather lift to the Heavenly and then remain there…

I remind myself to draw on His nearness with a glad heart. For His goodness transforms the mind bringing a supernatural peace.

My heart opens wide so He can fill the vessel…It overflows with joy and I feel the blessing of His presence touch deep within.

Blessed so I can be a blessing…

I slowly sing the words “Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in his wonderful face and the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace…

I give thanks again…
