The Storm, the Fire, the Noise and the Whisper

Peach says: There is a noise to life in these days that can be wonderful and can be awful also. And often disorienting.

For today I need less of the noise I personally make in my own head. I mean, Lord, do I trust You? Or do I trust my ability to figure things out and…do what? Nope. I put no trust in myself or words I could say or actions I could take. That doesn’t mean I do nothing, on the contrary, I continue to pray and declare YOU are Lord, YOU are our Father! YOU are the Great Designer! You are creating a masterpiece and we all get to be a part of it! Order our steps Lord, refine and help us be focused and disciplined! Effective and steadfast!! May the sound of our lives draw others to the flame that is You!! We are on fire but not consumed!

Like Moses at the burning bush, we take our shoes off because this life is Holy Ground. We want to be sensitive to the leading of Your Holy Spirit. We don’t always understand but, we always KNOW You are at work for our good and Your Glory. May we be quick to respond to Your leading and more ‘present’ with You throughout our days. We want to live our lives useful and AVAILABLE to You. We are grateful for Your Holy Spirit, which reveals You to us, and reveals Your ways to us, and guides us.

Less of us, less self focus, and more beholding You. As we behold You, we are transformed ‘from glory to glory’, You Word tells us.

When we shut down the noise, and turn away from our talkative minds and choose to still our minds under the peaceful and refreshing waters of His Word, His Presence and His Spirit, we are like over-excited and now worn out children just mentally resting on Him,  catching our breath and getting reoriented with which way is UP and what really matters, and what is just static, to be tuned out.

Once we recoup He is able to LAUNCH us like an arrow to our next destination!

Shhhh. 🙂 I’m listening! How about you?
