Selah...



Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track. (Proverbs 3:5,6 - The Message)

very timely. Don't try to figure out everything....Such a human tendency to try to figure everything out. He just wants us to love and trust Him. How precious He is...I wish my heart could love Him more. How much I desire to love HIM with all my heart. It is so painful to die to self. It wouldn't be so painful, except I have so much in my heart that needs to die to be totally sold out. But it is said, the closer you get to the light, the more you see the dirt! Oh God, have mercy on my soul. I love Him, but seem to have so far to go.

Berita, I believe God sees you perfect in your "perfecting",

...He already sees you through the wash and rinse cycle...but I definitely understand what ya' mean.

Wow, Berita. I don't know if you'll see this (I think your post is from FB) but maybe you will. That was real, and seems to me is exactly what God is looking for.

Amen, Brenda...come see.

River, your flow is cool.

Bishop, the "Selah..." title kept drawing me here. I started in the early hours of the day and I keep coming back. One time [not the first] I noticed that the Proverbs scrip is "my" verse. It was...I guess I'd choose "weird"...to have that dawn on me...but I need to add "cool" and "surprising" and "enlightening"...to see the verse I know so well in a new way...which reminds me...

how compelling these were: "stop figuring out precisely how we feel" and "stop deciding with our mind what we want our heart to feel". Dang deep, those statements are.

But I especially like the "sometimes"...because figuring out how I REALLY feel, without my mind adding its definitions, has been enlightening and freeing to me in so many ways.
