on December 29th i read these words:
"Be all here: and be holy.
Be all here: and be happy.
Because the Presence of I AM always fills the present moment.
Be all here and be at peace… content… awake —- Alive. When I am mindful of this moment, the mind fills with God and the heart fills with peace and joy - thanks fills the prayers and isn’t the only way God can come to us is through the door of this moment? Here." ~ Ann Voskamp
yesterday i read these:
"“would have and should have” never push forward—they only pull back. And, you can’t go back.
The only place Jesus can meet you is where you are. The only place you can meet Him is in reality. It’s now. Not because that’s the only place He is, it’s just the only place you are... You are here. So is Jesus...
This day is what matters. Today is the only day we have to give to Jesus." ~ Isaac Hunter
there is opportunity for me to become overwhelmed with my heart's desire for this year (may i live in the knowing every moment. He is Faithful and Relevant is in Him alone. by His grace may i be faithful and relevant to His glory and to the blessing of others). in the midst of the anticipation, the excitement, the fun - anxiety and angst would like a space to call their own
but (praise Him)
He calms me as these words i've read are a soothing balm to my soul and i am remembered - today is the only day and i hear James: “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”
this year, 2011, with the name Faithfully Relevant is lived one day at a time. and as Isaac said, "This day is what matters. Today is the only day we have to give to Jesus."
Jesus, Thank You for today. It is Yours :)
