My Resting Place

A Quiet Place

My Resting Place

There is something about walking along the beach with my Creator that inspires me to remain hopeful even as the world grows darker. Although I don't really walk the beach with Jesus Christ, I do in my quiet times with Him. I often take the time to walk away from this active world that is full of distractions, and focus on God, getting quiet with Him and listening. I do this so that I can hear His heartbeat, I can enter into His throne room full of grace and mercy, there I can find rest for my weary soul; there I can find strength to carry on in this dark planet we call home....for now. Apostle Paul once said "For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known." 1 Cor 13:12 NIV

Oh yes how I only see in part but my soul, my soul longs to see the fullness of the living God! I long to start my adventures in Heaven with all those who have gone before me. I am certain I will join the choir there, praising all day and all night, singing "Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord, God Almighty!" But for now I venture on in the Kingdom purpose that has been marked out for me here on earth. I am certain that I am behind schedule because I was so very late in offering my life to the Lord, however, God is merciful and He will redeem the time and cause me to gain back all that the locusts have devoured! Imagine that! I once was blind but now I see and oh how I see what a wretched woman was I! The grace that found me has accelerated me to places I would have not dared to dream I could go. Not physically so much as this body has its limits but in the sphere of influence He has given me I have been thrust into a world of the supernatural, into a world where God's Kingdom does reign here and He heals, He delivers and He sets all free. ALL that will come to Him my sweet Jesus will say, "Come to me, all you who are wearied and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30 NIV
