A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

December 6, 2017

“Let me tell you something true. God desires you. He loves you. He has amazing plans for you. And He likes you. He likes me, too. His liking of you is not based on how clever you are, how well you can serve Him or what you look like. It’s not about who you know and can influence for HIm. It’s not about your gifting or your pereferences. He likes you because He made you. Like an artist finishes His work an signs it proudly with His name, God has written His name of love across your life.” ~Heidi Baker

King David asks “Who am I that you should be mindful of me?” (Psalm 8:4) Such a good question….it’s about Him and His desire for a family, His most passionate desire to have you choose Him and want Him and know that He loves you through sending His son. If you have not done so…..I pray you will choose Him today. (John 3:16) “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that WHOEVER believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (Romans 10:13) “Whoever shall call on the name of the Lord (Jesus/Yeshua) shall be saved.” I pray today will be your day. Whisper His name …talk to Him….He is waiting for you!

QUIET TIMES – Poetry

December 4, 2016

Calmly walking by the bay
The mist is rising up
It crests the rocks and scatters ‘round
And peace, it fills my cup

As I walk and seek You
Silent and alone
My soul it lifts to meet You
My heart lifts to Your throne

Standing in your presence
Your warmth shines on my face
Just as real as earth is
I’m home here in this place

These moments are so holy
Sweet and set apart
As I see reflections face
Your love it fills my heart

Solid our connection
Fruitful are Your words
As they speak into my soul
My place with You assured

Don’t let it break away now
As I enter back inside
A place in our society
It seems no place to hide

Yet it takes a moment
To close my eyes and see
Our beautiful collection
Of quiet times with Thee
