Nothing to Write About is EVERYTHING, 31Jan

Lord knows, He wakes me up early, refreshed, ready to write. But this time I don’t think I have anything to write about!

As I turn over comfy, warmed, I am thankful to have slept well and especially to have found a corner of peace to allow myself this luxury of enjoying peace.

I am so thankful that I am THANKFUL…

Nothing to write about means I have EVERYTHING to thank the Lord for…

Lord, I’m so thankful witnessing that You give us strength and direction and for knowing that “These things will pass” – they actually did pass. They did and I am here to praise Your healing – physical, emotional, and healing thru time fading away the pain.

The moon, the stars, the sunrise are so beautifully distracting this morning – and You are even more beautiful than everything that You made beautiful. Thank you Lord for You – for being a focal point of a new day in Your service.

If I am in a holding pattern of peace it is because You made me look here for peace among the struggles, You focused me to count my blessings and YOU WERE RIGHT.

I did not foresee where I am now, but Lord you knew how to get me here. I have tried to make the best choices – and even if I didn’t, I have prayed for You to use me best You could… I fear You Lord in respect, You know when I feel humbled.  Thankful for my trials, I thank you for Your guidance thru them.

You are the best Lord, nothing I could have imagined compares to knowing you…

I am sorry when I forget You.

I am sorry when I rush You.

I am sorry when I fail to seek You.

I am sorry when I hesitate to serve You.

I’m sorry when I should have shut my mouth.

I’m sorry when I failed to open it.

I am sorry when I got shy and should have shouted.

Do I have work to do for You? Am I too complacent? Oh yeah… I have Your issues in me to work on and yet You allow me to feel Joy. I have Your issues in the world to work on and yet You allow me to stay here with my little section of puzzle (for now)…  You give me rest and You allow me perspective. I will never run out of Your Work. You need me to understand Your pace, and my place… then You need me to work for the benefit of Your place at my pace…

Thank You for allowing me to rest just now, regaining my strength…

Actually, You remind me that I need to look for Your strength not mine… Your agenda not mine… Your joy not mine. Your wings are not just to hide under but for me to soar on.

You are my JOY.

Oh Lord You’re Beautiful…

“if I’m doing good, please help me to never make a sound, except to give all the glory to you.” Keith Green 

Nothing to write is everything to praise!

Thank You for giving me pause to praise.

Amen

My favorite Keith Green song, it is in my head so much…. Oh, Lord You’re Beautiful (Live)” on YouTube https://youtu.be/uVgPQm06g2c

 

Oh LORD you’re beautiful.

Your face is all I seek.

For when your eyes are on this child.

Your love abounds to me.

Oh LORD by body’s tired.

But you keep reminding me.

Of many holy tireless men,

Whose split their blood for thee.

I want to take your Word and shine it all around.

But first help me first just live it LORD.

And if I’m doing well help me to never make a sound,

But to give all the glory to you.

Oh LORD my faith is small.

And I need a touch from you.

Your Book of books lies undisturbed.

And the prayers from me too few.

Oh LORD please light the fire.

That once burned bright and clear.

Replace the lamp of my first love.

That’s fueled with holy fear.

I want to take your Word and shine it all around.

But first help me just live it LORD.

And if I’m doing good, please help me to never make a sound,

Except to give all the glory to you.

Oh LORD you’re beautiful.

Your face is all I seek.

For when your eyes are on this child.

Your faith abounds to me.


STRENGTHEN YOUR HEARTS,  FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD IS NEAR” James 5
