Brimming…

Her heart brimming with the Word of Life…

sees Him hidden in the ordinary…

and reads His love notes tucked into the day.

The story of her soul authored by His grace.

It’s the secret of her smile from within…

and her posture of Praise.

EXPECTANT…

A Place of Enough…

tank

Gratefulness eradicates fear…

Because gratefulness comes from a place of enough…not from scarcity.

“Indeed religion with contentment is a great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, just as we shall not be able to take anything out of it.” 1 Tim 6:6-7

Clipped Wings…

Has life clipped your wings? …

Perhaps you have forgotten the Source of your soar…

“…rejoicing in the Lord must be your strength.” Neh 8:8:10b

What if…

What if all you had in your life today…

was only what you gave thanks for yesterday?…

Would your plate be empty?

Or your hands full?

“With my whole being I sing endless praise to you.  O Lord, my God, forever will I give you thanks.” Ps 30:13

Intertwined in the Grandiose Plan…

O ancient of waters brought forth by the Maker from the chaos of the dark…

Soothing waves pour over the anxious soul drawing one into its rocking motion…

Sitting before the water and pondering its beginning….

One feels so small….

But too…

So intertwined in the grandiose plan of God…

That all creation give Praise to Him our Creator!

Heart Be Not Muffled…Words Be Not Mute…

My blog has been quiet…but my ponderings deep.

And who’s to say these thoughts wouldn’t too make your spirit leap?

There’s a sharing of self in the sharing of our musings…

We learn from each other’s victories and bruisings.

So Heart be not muffled…words be not mute…

all of our writings can bless and take root.

We can encourage the wanderer…and strengthen the tired.

Faith is contagious…Let’s together enkindle the fire!

Through Him With Him In Him Blog is 1 year old!

165 posts, 1724 comments, 12,193 views, 1089 blocked spammers later it is a day of celebration and of reminiscing as I reread the posts from the past year. I thank you dear readers for your support and encouragement in this journey of the heart shared…you are remembered in my prayers…through Him with Him and in Him.

“May our Lord Jesus  himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting encouragement and good hope through his grace, encourage your hearts and strengthen them in every good deed and word.” 2Thes2:16-17.

Hushed…

“In their distress they cried to the Lord, who brought them out of their peril, hushed the storm to a murmur; the waves of the sea were stilled.  They rejoiced that the sea grew calm, that God brought them to the harbor they longed for.  Let them thank the Lord for such kindness, such wondrous deeds for mere mortal. Let them praise him in the assembly of the people, give thanks in the council of the elders…Whoever is wise will take note of these things, will ponder the merciful deeds of the Lord.”  Ps 107: 28-32,43

I’ve heard some say….”The weatherman was wrong again!”, “The media just hyped up Isaac!”…

Are we of such little faith that we no longer believe that in God all things are possible? I choose to give thanks for God’s calming of the storm, His hushing the harshness, and although our brothers and sisters in Louisiana and Mississippi are contending with some flooding issues…it could have been so much worse. Our prayers and assistance continue to reach out to them. But let us be like the “wise” taking “note of these things” and pondering “the merciful deeds of the Lord” while giving thanks in everything!

P.S.  Thank you for all your prayers!
