Can You Hear?

As the moon rotates around the earth and the earth rotates around the sun there is an overwhelming sense of urgency to discover why we seem to be at odds with each other. There seems to be no moral compass for the majority of humans.  It is a ‘do what you feel like doing’ kind of attitude.

Can you not hear the music of the Creator calling us to His side?  Do you notice the underlying heartbeat that He sacrificed for so long ago?  There is a place in all humans that desires something bigger than itself.  That desire was put inside each of us by God to long for Him and His ways.

The dance is the dance of praise because God is worthy!  He is the Creator and above Him there is no other.  Find a quiet place – sit and listen – hear the music of Jesus calling you to Himself – to a relationship with Him.

It will be insane!

The Sky is Falling?

Still pertains today as much as ever!

Only at His Feet!

chicken little2Have you ever heard the story of Chicken Little?  There are several versions  but the one I know goes something like this.  Chicken Little was walking along one day when an acorn fell on his head.  He just knew, with all his heart, that the sky was falling so he set out to tell the king.  Along the way, he met other animals and as he told them what happened they decided to join him on his quest.  They happen upon a fox who invites them into his lair for protection against the falling sky.  They all enter but then the fox proceeds to eat them all except for Chicken Little who was warned what the fox was doing and escaped.  The moral of the story…’Don’t believe everything you hear.”

I have heard a lot of people over the last few years complain about our President and Congress.  Sometimes about…

The Soul Cries Out…

…for rest…for peace…for joy…for love…
…for hope….for security…for contentment…

It desires a place that when examined nothing intangible is lacking.

Paradise.

Yes, our soul longs for paradise.  It longs to be in that place where God resides in all His glory.  Where there is no sorrow, no strife.  No tears are shed in paradise. No worries there either.  Joy and praise are at the very top of the list of ‘things to experience and do’.

Ohhh…but here comes the ‘worm in the apple’, the ‘fox in the henhouse’, the ‘bitter in the sweet’.  We are not there yet!

Life has a funny way of showing up and destroying any or all of the things our soul desires at one point or another if we allow it.

One of my favorite Psalms is number 42.  The first two verses I really love:

1 As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for You, my God. 2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.  When can I go and meet with God?

But as you read down through the verses there are three references to the soul being downcast, being disturbed.  Ring any bells in your day – your life.  It does in mine.

We all have ‘issues’ at one point or another in our life.  There are always going to be moments where we wonder if we are going nuts or if it is the world around us.  What we have to do to when our soul cries out is make sure we turn to our Lord.

Psalm 42 also says in verses 5 and 11 –

Why, my soul, are you downcast?  Why so disturbed within me?  Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God.

Sometimes it’s not easy, sometimes it’s not what we want to do, sometimes it goes against everything we feel ~ BUT it is always the right thing to do.  No doubt about it.  Praising our God will help our souls to rest in Him, to love Him more, and to be more content in whatever place we are in the moment.

God is an awesome God!  He loves each one of us more than we can imagine or know!  He is the lover of our soul!  Only He can quiet all the negative ‘stuff’ we can be bombarded with.  He is our ABSOLUTE!
