It has been impossible for me to stop talking about my Heavenly Father. I am sure you are tired of hearing it but my love for Him deepens every day, often every hour, and I long to share of His greatness. The perfection of God cannot be overstated, for it is the perfect blend of powerful love, beautiful glory, and sobering holiness. His creativity also embolden the breath of Him and nothing escapes His notice. He is everywhere and His grace and generosity accompany Him wherever He goes. Nothing is better than time alone with the Lord. Nothing fulfills like it or is sweeter.❤❤❤
My own agenda is thrown out the window. I submit my will to God’s will and pray His plans for me are the ones I seek. I want to do God’s will and keep in humble prayer all day long and keep in reading God’s Word. He is the only hope we have, the solution to every problem, the Truth and love and everything good, the perfect One, the Physician of the sick and Deliverer of the oppressed. God made everything we know of. That means the most majestic mountain peak, He is more majestic. The most beautiful rainbow or sunset, God is more beautiful. The most tender and precopus baby, God is more precious. The deepest depths and highest heights we know if, He is deeper and higher still. Praise God!❤❤❤
Staying close to God requires that you put the things that are not God down. You spend dedicated time with Him. You humbly pray. You read His Words, the Bible. You worship. You just chat. You stay close to God like you stay close to your best friend. But you have an advantage with God in that He is always with you, always available, living in your heart. ❤
When I pray, God reveals truths to me. He teaches me things. I have to be quiet and listen and humbly pray and God teaches me things. For instance, this morning as I walked and talked with Him, He revealed to me that when people idolize and lift up someone for some great thing they have done or achieved, they very often neglect t doling out praise and worship and adoration to God who gave them them hat gift or ability to begin with. In essence, it is glorifying the receiver of the gift rather than the Giver of the gift (and the Maker of that person). It is all wrong. God should get your praise first. God should be worshipped and lifted up for it all!!!❤❤❤
I walk along the path during the sunrise.
The heat is not yet a struggle.
The birds sing and find food, the butterflies also
The wind wafts in waves over my skin.
Not entirely awake, I move one step in front of the other
With each, my eyes open more
And I am struck with the immense beauty
The calm and noise balance luxuriously.
I realize God is already up for He never sleeps
I say good morning and He does too in heart and nature.
His gentleness does not offend in the early hours.
God’s presence is always a delight.
How rich my walk when He is there.
And He is always there.❤❤❤
I received one of the greatest comliments this morning at church. A man came up to me and said he missed it when I was not playing piano (and here is the compliment) because “I can tell you can show worship to Jesus because it is obvious you feel it.” My heart for God melted. What an amazing thing when people notice how very much I love Jesus and love worshiping and leading worship to Him!! Oh how I am thankful for that encouragement. Praise Jesus, the lover of my soul!!! ❤❤❤
So, since we took a break from the worship band at church so others could play who felt called to, I got a month off and they have mysteriously needed me to fill in on piano or keyboard ever since. Hmmmm. Well, it is for me to obey and if God wants me to play, He will lead someone to ask me. I am for God, whatever He wants, all His. And as much as I dislike midweek practice, I that much more love leading worship with the talent He has given me. So if I play or don’t play, may God’s will be done and Him honored and worshiped! To God Be the glory! ❤❤❤
