Quietly and yet clearly, I could see and hear the sparkling dew falling from the leaves overhead – a gentle display of His hand shaking awake His slumbering creation. I realized that what I was witness to in the cool of this early morning stirred awake even my own heart.
These words – His Words – began to softly unfolded within my soul.
“Don’t fall victim to the wiles of the world turn your heart toward Mine. I fashioned this moment as a gift to unwrap – a moment chosen for you. Now choose Me and give thanks. Look for My hand all the while remembering what I have done. Can I not do even more today? Start to speak out loud the grace and mercy I have already given so you will not doubt what I can do even now. Make the decision to be glad in this moment. I have given it to you. If nothing else, can you find joy in Me? Find your words as songs of praise not dirges of gloom. Life is beautiful. I am beautiful and you I have made in my image. Sing to that! Death and gloom is not yours anymore – My Son overcame it all for you.”
Daily life is a choice. Today the gentle reminder…
I will give things to you, Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
I will be glad and rejoice in you;
I will sing the praises of your name, O most High.
Today may I hold fast to “I will” and choose You, my Lord.
