This morning, I was alone. My husband left early to work at a Georgetown market (we have a graphic tee business), and my mother was still fast asleep.
The thought went through my head to go back to sleep, being it was a Saturday and 7am, but I realized this was my chance to have some stillness and quiet time with God. And…I LOVE mornings. I grabbed my eggs, toasted english muffin with strawberry jam, and a cup of coffee and set out for the back deck.
I was just sitting there, with my eyes closed, listening to the faintest of breezes, and the beautiful music of the birds in the backyard. Thankfully, there was a break in the rain spell we have been experiencing, and the humidity level was lower than normal. Things were good:-)
The temperature was 76 degrees, and the air felt pretty near perfect, and it was overcast. The sun was behind some thick clouds.
With my eyes still closed, I leaned back in my chair, fully at peace, and asked the Lord to let me know what He wanted for my day…what did He wish for me to know.
As soon as I finished that request/thought, my body was enveloped with unbelievable warmth and light from the sun. I mean it completely overcame my whole being, and I felt myself basking in God’s love. He spoke to me.
“Keep me in your thoughts and heart and you will find me all through your day. Always know that I am with you.”
When I hear the Lord speaking to me, I listen. (or at least try to!!!) I will keep my eyes, ears, and heart open, today and everyday, to look for Him. I know that He will show up in places that I do not expect.
I am looking forward to being surprised by my Heavenly Father, and looking for the ways He will use me to share His love.
May God bless you with His Holy Spirit, so that your eyes will see Him, your ears will hear Him, and your heart will know Him.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me. Proverbs 8:17
