Sunday Selah

The swirling moments that disrupt your days can grey the skies. Pressure surging you forward to be more, do more, have more. It never works out that way; the more it simmers the more you need to be, do and have. It’s a relentless coercion. A vicious compression of your soul.

Some call it “keeping up with the Jones’”. While others, immersed in the news and headlines call it being “informed”. Some push and strive to “achieve the dream”. Either way, it is a whirlwind. Whipping you to and fro. Battle torn. Empty.

Just pause. Be still. Notice.

There are fountains of peace-filled water flowing around you. There are songbirds of joy and kisses of warm sunlit love. The battle may rage, but not you. You stand firm on the solid rock of your High God, resting in His steady, continuous grace.
Know that even the winds and the waves answer to Him, Be still and know He is God.

God is a safe place to hide, ready to help when we need him.
We stand fearless at the cliff-edge of doom,
courageous in seastorm and earthquake, Before the rush and roar of oceans,
the tremors that shift mountains.

Jacob-wrestling  God fights for us, God-of-Angel-Armies protects us.

River fountains splash joy, cooling God’s city, this sacred haunt of the Most High.
God lives here, the streets are safe, God at your service from crack of dawn.
Godless nations rant and rave,
kings and kingdoms threaten, but Earth does anything he says.

Attention, all! See the marvels of God! He plants flowers and trees all over the earth,
Bans war from pole to pole, breaks all the weapons across his knee.

“Step out of traffic! Take a long, loving look at me, your High God,
above politics, above everything.”

Jacob-wrestling God fights for us, God-of-Angel-Armies protects us.

Psalm Forty Six

    • Lux, Thank you for coming by today! This post was a beautiful struggle to write. I sat there and simply soaked in John 20… it was sorrowful and yet glorious in the same breath. As I have begun pondering this week and it’s significance in my faith I am floored. Floored at the power of Holy love. I pray your week is surrounded by love moments, the kind that fill your soul full to the brim! Blessings to you my friend!
