Take nothing for the journey

Posted on December 29th, by admin in thinking. No Comments

Take nothing for the journey, He has the provision that you need. Taking our own supplies causes us to rely on our strength, when actually there is greater supply in Him. How I long to be in a place of greater trust that I don’t need to add my own strength, add my own spin, taking along my man made provision, when His provision is enough. The root issue is trust, oh God help my soul to trust you more, to rely on you for what I need. Jesus asks his disciple not to take specific things when he sends them out, a staff, a bag, money, bread, extra clothes. This does seem extreme but these are all the things that we rely on, these are all the things that we trust in, when actually he wants us to trust in him. Can he provide you with food, clothing, accommodation? He is able, and willing to provide, but the issue is will you trust.

The day of long shadows

When the light is bright
The contrast clear
The chill in the air
It’s that time of year

When days are short
Nights are long
But this is no tie to mourn
For this is the hour

This is the moment
For the giants to stand
Taller than before
This is the day of long shadows

Taller in the light of the sun
Touching heights you never dreamed of
Reaching out for that which is beyond
This is the day

So stand tall
In the day of long shadows
In the moment
In the hour

Stand tall and don’t shrink back
Enjoy the moment
Where you can stand tall
And touch the heights

My one thing

Posted on December 2nd, by admin in thinking. No Comments

I want to drink from you, and know your love more than any other. I look to you, you are my rock, the one who holds me still in the storm, who holds me near. You steady my mind when I feel that all is fading. You are faithful to the end, when I am down you pick me up, when I am dry you fill my cup, you will not my stumble, you command your angels concerning me, to guard me in all my ways. He is my refuge and my fortress, my trust is in you. You fill my vision, you consume me. Lord deliver me from the foxes that distract, that take me away from your purposes. Those attitudes, thoughts and reactions that take me from your presence. Lord let me be like David, he was a man of one thing. Jesus fill my vision, fill my mind and my heart.
