Today

Today, it is well with my soul. In the process of my inch by inch, it's a cinch cleaning, the Lord brought the nearly silent, gentle rain of His presence. It was so quiet it almost slipped by unnoticed, yet was so clear I was able to hear it above the sound of pots and pans and garbage cans.

I admit, however, that I fear my flesh, and I should. I fear the busy days and hectic times ahead might trample the quiet of His peace. I fear that my unwillingness to die to myself might quench the blessing of obedience. I feel I am to move quietly through these days to be able to hear and listen and move as He says move. Wow, I'm still learning and expect to be His student until I see His face. (Even then, I am expecting continual revelation and awe.)


Yesterday, our Pastor brought a powerful message about doors, both open and closed. About seasons. May I step with Him through both door and season. I am keenly aware that He is at work. Obedience to His leadership brings His blessing, and that is what I'm after.

It amazes me that as we choose to be obedient, that 'still small voice' can be heard above the din.

Those silent moments of His presence are just the best!!! I also believe we will have continual revelation and awe when we meet Him face to face. Your post sounds like a love song in the making.

I'm enjoying some of that silent time this morning.
Girl, you should write/publish a devotional book for women! You're *plumb* good! Have a great day, oh and don't forget to have a few of those silent moments today.

Praying for you in whatever season God takes you through. You're right- obedience is the only way to have real peace. The world might look at you like you're crazy...but obedience keeps you close to the heart of God.

Love and Prayers!

Oh, what a Savior. Oh, Love devine. Oh, what unsearchable depths. Oh, how I love HIM and oh, how I appreciate you, and those of like mind, that LOVE HIM above all else.

Pastor's sermon was amazing! I think so many of us can relate to the "open door" thing in our lives right now...

I pray that you will always feel that peace of His that surpasses all understanding!
