“He stilled the storm to a murmur, and the waves of the sea were hushed. They rejoiced when the waves grew quiet. Then He guided them to the harbor they longed for.” Psalms 107:29-30 HCSB
Take a deeper breath, DearOne,
Fall deeply within your heart and picture yourself crossing a bridge over a creek to enter into an old farm cabin that sits just behind your heart… once you cross over, you look back and the bridge is gone and there is only silence. A deep and pure quiet wraps you as you step into the cabin. There’s a glowing flame in fireplace and a chair and quilt nearby beckons you to sit. Stay.
You hear a voice that quiets you deeper still and you know that you are with God. In the silence your Creator says, “I have been waiting a long time to be with you in this silence.”
Imagine the embrace of the Divine as You feel Him say “My child, I have a question for you – and it will change your life.” And deep from within God says -“what have I given you in this life that is too much to carry? – tell me what I have given you that is too much to carry and give it back to me…release it to me… release it to me.”
The God Most High says “I place my hand on your head, My Child, and the Grace of God and heaven go through you and release the diseases that assault your body, the suffering that assaults your heart, the grief that grips your soul, the pain that plunders your body. Now feel the grace from heaven consuming you from the inside out and surrender it all – simply let it go.
God, grant me the grace of awe and honor for my life so that I may be grateful I am alive.
God, allow me the grace of reverence so that I see every human being as Your child.
Grant me extraordinary understanding so that I can see beauty and truth in my relationships with others.
Grant me the grace of fortitude so that I have the mettle to answer when you call my name.
God, give me the grace of Your wise counsel so that I can hear you when you guide me.
Pour into me the grace of knowledge to understand the higher meaning of things.
Download into me the wisdom to see clearly the choices I need to make.
Let nothing, Father, disturb the silence of peace in my heart.
In the holy and precious name of Jesus, I ask Your river of calm to flow through me. Amen.
Meet with Him.
