Look and See

I feel incredibly blessed this morning. I don’t deserve His mercies that renew each and every day. He gives them to me anyway. You too. Its still early and I’ve already used some of that new mercy, but I feel His presence and it’s all that I need.

Doesn’t it feel so good when we can be still and feel His Spirit within us? I crave more and more of that the more I feel it. Just sitting here on my bed in the quiet. I can hear the birds he so graciously cares for singing. It’s been cloudy and raining here, but in this moment I see the sunshine beaming through my window. The clock my husband made for me ticking on my wall. The air conditioner just came on to keep me cool in this southern heat and humidity.

Had I not sat here and just got still, I wouldn’t have gotten all of that. What a blessing it is to see Him, to hear Him, and to feel Him. The kids are at church camp today and I am soaking up this quietness. Thank You Lord!

I haven’t even started reading my Bible yet. I felt His Spirit nudge me to write, so here I am. Basking in His love for me. And letting You know He is there with the same things and so much more.

I couldn’t make this feeling up if I tried. His Spirit leads us to things we could never do on our own. Like peace. How many of us try to get a piece of that? It doesn’t work out so good when I try to get my own peace. It just ain’t happnin’!

Our eyes haven’t seen , nor our ears heard, nor can we understand in our hearts the things that God has prepared for us who love Him. (1 Cor 1:9) This feeling is nothing compared to what He has in store for me. And for you. Thank You Lord, for loving me first so I can love You!

His Spirit within me allows me to feel Him, to see Him and know in my heart it is from Him.Not only here on earth, but so much more to come in heaven. His Spirit knows and searches for the things of God, not the things of man. How incredible Your Spirit is Lord! (1 Cor 2:10-16)

So, if you can, just be still for a little while. I completely get it if that only consists of bathroom breaks and kids beating the door down wondering where you are! Sometimes you just can’t get it. But, if and when you can; soak it up. He’s ready for you to see Him, to hear Him and to know Him and all that He has for you. Thank You Jesus!!
