what fills the soul

Saturday I woke to fresh snow. Normally just another winter day but with plans to fly to Florida it made the morning a bit different with clearing the driveway and going slow on the highway. Hours later to be driving with mom in the sunshine state, seeing palms, and enjoying the sunset over the gulf. A wonderful change.

At His Feet

At His Feet

We went to a local church for Bible study and worship. Pastor Shawn’s message was on John 3.

Nicodemus – wanted to spend time with Jesus. As Jesus spoke – then questions came.

How often to do we go to our Lord with an agenda instead of merely seeking His Presence?

So much in this world begs, cries, and calls for our attention. Maybe a challenge for the week or month is to look at what gets your attention. Carry a little notebook and log where you spend your time.

We were challenged to take time at the end of the service to just be with God…
to listen…
no questions…
no agenda…

Turn you eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face;
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace.
Helen H. Lemmel, 1922
