Do we need to enjoy a little stillness in our hearts and lives this morning?

Stillness pushes back the world and opens our spirits to God’s gracious sanctifying work.

In to Thy silent place of prayer
The anxious, wandering mind recall
Dwell ‘mid Thy own creation there,
Restoring, claiming, hallowing all.
Then the calm spirit, won from sin,
Thy perfect sacrifice shall be,
And all the ransomed powers therein
Shall go forth, glorifying Thee.
Anna L. Waring

Do you feel the need of those ‘ransomed powers’?
They gather strength in stillness.
It doesn’t take hours.
God saved your soul in a moment.
Why not see what He can do if you offer Him five or ten?

~ Random thoughts while dusting the mantle this morning ~

The burl in the photo was created when a tree underwent some form of stress.
Maybe an injury or other affliction.
But the result can be beautiful.

God doesn’t waste the stresses He allows in our lives.
They pass through His love and carry with them the divine influence in the forces they exert.

I bought this carving in one of my favorite shops in Sacramento because it reminded me of the beauty a true craftsman produces in his finished work.

. . . we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.
1 John 3:2

Be still and know that I am God.
Psalm 46:10

A little gift for your Saturday
Still, My Soul Be Still
