A Journal Entry


My Father woke me up this morning with a song on my heart. “Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.”

When I walked outside, a beautiful sunrise met my gaze. I looked up and said “Good Morning Lord, thank You for the amazing palette you paint for me every morning.”

I walked into the office to a desk full of opportunity. I prayed “Thank You Father for a job, for purpose, thank You for allowing me to serve You by serving others.”

I picked up the phone and heard the frustration on the other end, I heard a still small voice, “Breathe . . .” I looked up and read the sticky on my board which said “Do not fear for I am with You, do not be dismayed for I am your God I will strengthen You and help you, I will uphold You with my righteous right Hand. Isaiah 41:10.”

When I walked out for lunch, in that very moment a flock of geese flew overhead. “Father, You always know how to bring joy to my heart.”

I left the office and once again was astounded by the amazing sunset before my eyes. “Father”, I said, “How do You do it? Everywhere I turn You are there, every moment of my day You choose to remind me that You are there, ‘Be Still and know that I am God’, You seem to say.”

I walked in the door to the man of my dreams, “Thank You Lord for knowing this is the one I am to spend my life with, my cup runneth over. I am forever blessed.”

At the end of my day, in the quiet of His Presence, I open His Word and the teaching my heart longs for soothes my heart. I read of a great Love from a Father to His Children. As if a Loving Parent is reading to me, so my Papa Father is reading to me through His Living Word.

Father, You are so very Good! There are not words to express but know that I am so very thankful for Your Grace, I am so very thankful that You choose to Love me, pour into me, correct me, teach me. I pray that every day I will awake with the knowledge that my Heavenly Father is with me always. Help me to Be Still and know that You are God.

Be Still

On a quiet Georgia morn

The rain is falling down

I lean into your Word

Your Spirit whispers in my ear

the words my eyes have found

Great things I long to hear

The Spirit Says

Be still and know that He is God

Be still and know His Glory

Be still and know that He is God

Be still and know Him only

Always with you By your side

His Love is yours for all time

Be still and know that He is God

My anxious heart is torn

As my tears hit the ground for

A life, which feels so worn

In your word my heart can see

Your Promises abound

Seeking You sets me free

The Spirit Says

Be still and know that He is God

Be still and know His Glory

Be still and know that He is God

Be still and know Him only

Always with you By your side

His Love is yours for all time

Be still and know that He is God

Just to sit in your presence

At the start of each day

Seeking Your Light in the darkness

Jesus teach me The Way

Be still and know that You are God

Be still and know Your Glory

Be still and know that You are God

Be still and know You only

Always with me By my side

Your Love is mine for all time

Be still and know that You are God (Repeat 2x)
