Love, Faithfulness, Wisdom

It's amazing how submitting a small amount of my time can quiet my spirit. 

Midst all the busyness that surrounds; obeying God's command by sitting--with Him--does incredible things.  I mean, the Lord gives me my time. Every minute of the day He has granted me and provided me. He waits.  



Coffee...it's my thing. I never miss a coffee date. Yet I miss them most mornings with my God. I don't even have to leave my house and miss the meeting. I don't even have to scramble to clean for a visitor, because he's already in the house, seen the mess, and he waits--for me. He's sitting by my chair waiting. Will she come chat with me for a minute?And when I do sit, to chat with him, He is joyous EVERY time. There is such happiness that I am with Him

There is a calmness in the house before my kids wake.  How I love that stillness. 

But it is hard to get this body out of my comfortable bed. Out from under the covers to begin the day again.  I enjoy my sleeping. See my kids are active and they wear me out.  The house is always a mess and there is always a giant To-Do list.

But morning dawns, the light washes the darkness away. It is still. Crazy how well you listen when it is still. So I choose to read the words of God. To fill my heart, my head with good! When I choose this, I am joyful. I have hope. I have a steady hand. I have foundation. I have confidence. I feel a kick in my step and I want to dance. 

I want more of this.

Proverbs 3

3Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.  4Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and Man.



5Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Straight path...

7Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil.  8This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.



13Blessed in the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, 14for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.  15She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.  16Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor.

17Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. 18She is a tree of life to those who embrace her; those who lay hold of her will be blessed.



21My son, preserve sound judgment and discernment, do not let them out of your sight; 22they will be life for you, and ornament to grace your neck.


23Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble; 24when you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
