When I sit down to journal in the quiet moments of the morning it is a chance for me to just open up my heart and mind to God. Giving my thoughts and feelings over to Him through my written words. Some mornings I sense a shift in my mind occur and it is not my voice but Gods coming through the end of my pen. Today I feel lead to share those words with you also. Maybe in some way they will encourage you to know that God is always speaking to us and through us. He is as near as your next breath.
Words from the Father.
I am your strength and your shield. I am working in wondrous ways, even now, behind the scenes.
I AM making a way.
I DO go before you and make those crooked places straight. You CAN trust me in that! I watch over My word to perform it. My word does not return to me void. And in that (my word & in trusting me) you will find fullness of Joy. Even now in the middle. The middle of the unknown of today & tomorrow. Before you see with your eyes that desired outcome.
Press into me.
Seeking. Praying. Worshipping. Thanking Me. Choosing to see the Goodness I pour on you. Everyday.
Resist the urge /desire to just have this season come to an end. Be over already. I am doing something amazing in you. Right here in this space. Don’t rush it and wish it over.
Rest in it..…
Don’t run away but run towards me and the sometimes unseen work I am doing.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for Joy and I will give thanks to Him in song. Psalm 28:7
Strength. Protection. Trust. Rescue. Joy. Thanksgiving. Worship.
