LIKE HEAVEN TO ME

Some heart thoughts from my journal.....






LIKE HEAVEN TO ME


Busyness beckons, schedules shout!

Pins need pinning, blog posts call out!

But I hear His sweet voice calling unto me....


"Daughter, won't you come and sit awhile and share your heart with me?"


Busyness beckons, schedules shout!

Pins need pinning, blog posts call out!

And again I hear His sweet voice calling unto me....


"Daughter, won't you come and sit awhile and share your heart with me?"


Love patiently lingers....My Saviour waits for me.

 His divine invitation strumming the cords of my weary heart.

Love leaning closely listening for my reply.

My surrendered heart now melting...

"Oh yes Lord, all else I will deny!"


In quietness and stillness 
I will sit in your Presence
and 
listen to the whispers of your love.

Stillness...Listening...Waiting...Longing

Drawing closer to Him

Love drawing closer to me

Deep calling unto deep

Doors of my weary heart wide open now

Tears flowing

Heartaches pouring

Divine exchange

Questions answered

Weariness fleeing

Strength poured in

Wisdom imparted

Healing flowing

Burdens lifted

Light shining

Darkness fleeing

Hope arising

Blessed assurance

Faith soaring

Peace abounding

Joy astounding

Time seemingly standing still as the depths of my heart are poured into His and His into mine.

Held within the embrace of His loving arms of mercy and amazing grace!


Busyness beckons, schedules shout!

Pins need pinning, blog posts call out!

And again I hear His sweet voice calling unto me....


"Daughter, won't you come and sit awhile and share your heart with me?"


"Oh yes, Lord...All else must wait!"


Your Presence is all I need!


Your Presence is all I want!


In the glory of your Presence I find peace that makes me whole!


In the glory of your Presence I find rest for my weary soul!

"Oh yes, Lord!"
In quietness and stillness 
I will sit in your Presence
and 
listen to the whispers of your love.

Your Presence is like Heaven to me!






He's waiting........


Love and Sweet Blessings!

What a sweet picture of time with our Lord! The Holy Spirit is such a gentleman... gently nudging but not forcing - leading us to the choice to spend time at the throne. And oh! What blessings we find when we finally set busyness aside and focus on Him alone. Thank you for sharing this reminder.

This is wonderful, Jackie. We do sometimes put other things ahead of our time with Him, yet He's always there waiting, wooing, loving. Time for me to go read my devotional right now in fact and get into the Word again.
Love,
Sandy

It's in his presence that find our filling and our strength to write that post, pin that pin, live our lives!I often here Christ calling me before I get busied with life. He never fails to pour out "fresh oil" over my head and heart as I come in faith to him.

What a beautiful post! It reminds me of the scripture, "Be still and know that I am God." I'm always reminding myself to be still and stop the busyness of life so that I can hear His voice and feel His presence.

Blessings abundant to you!

I really loved this today! The progression was just beautiful! Seems like once with have those times with Him, we hear that voice more clearly because it is what the soul really wants --- fellowship with Him. It's morning, and you nudged me here. Thank you!

Here I am! To "Meet and Greet"! How blessed I am to read your words of quiet call to be with Jesus....

He's all I want.
He's all I need.

Holding our sweet Silas for hours at a time, my heart split wide open. I felt such utter dependance on Him...such an overflowing of love and oneness for with Him for our precious grandson.

Is there any place more precious than in the stillness before Him?
