Forty-Five Verses: Only One Thing

Image
Psalm 27:4-5 says... 
"I'm asking God for one thing, only one thing;  to live with him in his house my whole life long.  I'll contemplate his beauty;  I'll study at this feet.  That's the only quiet, secure place in a noisy world,  the perfect get away, far from the buzz of traffic."
Hmmm....just think on that one for a bit, the perfect getaway!

Forty-Five Verses:As The Wind Blows

Image
My children gave me this wind chime many years ago for Mother's Day. I was looking at it today as I watered my plants on the deck. For the first time in a quite a while I zeroed in on the words "I AM." Right there in the center, surrounded by.. Lord of Lords..Savior..Alpha and Omega...the Way...Jesus and the top and Jesus at the bottom. The great I AM. "And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM; and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you." Exodus 3:14 Those were the words the Lord specifically told Moses to say to the children of Israel.

I absolutely love little white churches. Simple yet beautiful structures with a steeple...Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place.  It was a highlight among the loooong way home, from a great trip. You know how that last day of vacay ...when you are just ready to get home and it seems you will never get there? Well, add a few hours to that and there you have spring break back from the beach.

Life can be like this at times. You have prayed, the trials get harder, you keep praying, there's some progress, pray more, breakthrough, more prayer and then all of sudden God places a treasure right there in your path. I…
