My God

Posted by: | Comments (3)

 

My God

Is strong, unwavering, steady,

Not found off-guard by the rhythms of my heart

Knowing they will lead me to Him

Even if they don’t seem to

 

My God

Is faithful, committed, stable,

Not afraid of my journey

For He has already been in my future

Even though I can’t see it

 

My God

Is courageous, unmovable, steadfast,

Not one to run from me

For He knows my heart

Even when it seems dark

 

My God

Is truth, uncompromised, existing

Not defined by my humanness

For His very being created me

Unafraid to be identified as mine

 

My God

Stock the Pond

Posted by: | Comments (1)

  

As I think about the many ways my life has changed in the last year, one of the most unexpected things is the way that I am learning to enjoy life in the everyday moments. 

As I spent time with a friend yesterday, we paused again and again to look at the day’s sunset. We stopped the CD that was playing to talk about the words. We breathed in the experiences of the moment. 

My friend commented that she had heard someone refer to this kind of life as having your pond stocked, a process that fills your pond with living, breathing fish, so that it teems with life. 

And truly that was how I felt. At that moment, my pond was stocked. I was full.

Hide or Seek

 Hide and Seek

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1… 

Ready or not – Here I come! 

The object of the old childhood game is to hide well enough that no one will find you. If no one finds you, you win.

I think that is a pretty good picture of how we often live.  We look for the best hiding places; places to hide our true heart, our emotions, our giftings, our anger, our thoughts.  We try to hide so well that no one will see us. And then, if no one finds us, we declare that we have won!

Yet when we choose to hide our true self in our relationships, instead of winning, we actually lose. We lose the opportunity to be truly known and loved for who we really are.
