My Part, His Part


Recently, I was perusing some things in my circle of responsibility and realized with chagrin, that I had gone beyond the boundaries that had been set.

I quickly sensed that instead of feeling guilty and thinking the “oh no, thoughts, what am I going to do” the wisest thing was to simply repent.

Repent, because wholeheartedly I desire to go the opposite direction and set the compass of my heart so it focuses clearly on Jesus, His Living Word and Presence within me.

When I respond to His Presence with me…no more will I let sin reign, no more will I find comfort and joy in shopping, spending or even scrimping.

I will live, each moment of my days encompassed and enveloped in the Presence of the One Who has promised that He is more than enough, that He will supply all my needs according to His riches in glory.

So, this new year, before it has even begun, I choose to seek the glory of God, to chase after Him and to set myself securely upon my Father’s lap.

I will know beyond a shadow of a doubt that my God is more than enough for me.

Living on a Higher Plateau


I am going to let love be the key that unlocks the door in my heart,that place that wants everything to be just so.

I’m going to cry out “Come into this place, Jesus, flood it with the warmth of Your radiant, purifying love.  Fill me with the glorious, glorious love You have for me.”

And I can imagine running into His arms and being embraced by pure love.

I can see the sparkle in His beautiful eyes as He gazes upon me with such adoration – and somehow I can see that adoration is reflected back to Him.  I can feel the gentleness of His gaze and yet the strength and power in it pierces my heart to the core.  He shows me in that gaze what intimacy with God truly looks like.
