Romancing my heart...

Lately, I have found myself withdrawn from the "blog" and "facebook" world to really spend more time in the word, prayer, and pouring into my "real life" friendships.... and soon, I know I will be able to share and somehow verbalize what God is doing during this period of "silence."

BUT, just last night I was talking to a sweet friend, who pointed me to the devotional that I had almost missed for yesterday... Jesus Calling. It BLEW US BOTH AWAY, knowing where our hearts both are right now. I'm not really sure why I find myself so surprised when God speaks directly to my heart... but when the God of the universe romances my heart with HIS word, it is almost overwhelming. Just wanted to share these words with you.

This is a time in your life when you must learn to let go: of loved ones, of possessions, of control. In order to let go of something that is precious to you, you need to rest in My Presence, where you are complete. Take time to bask in the Light of My Love. As you relax more and more, your grasping hand gradually opens up, releasing your prized possess=ion into my care.
You can feel secure, even in the midst of c ataclysmic changes, through awareness of My continual Presence. The One who never leaves you is the same yesterday, today and forever. As you release more and more things into My care, remember that I never let go of your hand. Herein lies your security, which no one and no circumstance can take from you.
Psalm 89:15 "Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence O LORD."
Hebrews 13:8 "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever."
Isaiah 41:13 "For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you."

Praying I can let go and bask in the LIGHT of His LOVE!


  1. still just shaking my head with my mouth hanging open... with the occassional laugh!!! Pheeeeew...

  2. I read this yesterday too and felt silly for having my currrent concerns because when I looked at it in His Light they were really blessings. I also took from this to take it ONE DAY AT A TIME, which is hard for my goal oriented brain to do sometimes. He steadily teaches me (when I truly come to Him with my day) to slow down and live for Him moment by moment, day by day. Love you friend.

  3. Just like God to be so direct and specific to your heart! He's good like that! LOVE it!
