Day 16

I don't know about you, but I know I 'feel' a lot more spiritual, joyful and loving at 7 in the morning than I do at 9 at night. Especially at the end of a long, hectic day. I am getting to the point where I can almost feel a craving in my soul for my daily bread, my manna from heaven, that is spent throughout the day. Just as my physical body and mind are tired at the end of the day, and need rest, so it is with my soul. I need to daily go back to my quiet moments in my garden with Jesus and allow Him to give me my daily bread, and fortify my spirit for the tests that lie ahead each day. I am realizing more and more how weak I really am, how unable I am to love others as Jesus loves. I want to be loved, fed, pampered and lazy! Dear Jesus, save me from Me!

This is what the Sovereign Lord,
the Holy One of Israel says:
"Only in returning to me 
and resting in me will you be saved.
In quietness and confidence is your strength..." (Isaiah 30:15)

Enough said. Amen.


  1. Oh so true Grace!
    We need Him so!
    Thanks for putting it so beautifully.
    It is so nice having this fellowship with you.
    I have missed it.
    God created us to be in community so we can spur each other on....
    In Him...

  2. Thank you Grace--you must be looking over my shoulder today. I really needed this message and to realize it's not just me (and it's not about me)-- I was having a pity party on the way home from work--tired, hungry, grumpy and needing to feel loved. Just give me Jesus.

  3. I'm glad I'm not alone...thanks girls. Keep seeking and knocking!
