His invitation

Promised presence, caring peace

My soul is rested

Peace

Isaiah 26:3 NLT
You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!

Rushing waters, rocks

Focused mind, looking to him

Calmness, perfect peace

To others, with them

Reciprocating blessings

Sensitive Living

Every chance I get

I bless God every chance I get; my lungs expand with his praise. Psalm 34:1

Every chance I get I…

This little phrase makes me stop and ask myself questions. What do I enjoy every time I get to do it? What captures my thoughts and attention more quickly than anything else? Am I disciplined enough to bless my God when difficulties come? I bless God every chance I get rests upon decisions and disciplines I enact today. They prepare me for unknowns and properly position the difficult and joyous times.

So, Lord, I will bless you every chance I get. I will start where I am now and will make every effort to discipline myself so that this response is the first one to all that comes, regardless.

Strong peace

God makes his people strong. God gives his people peace. Psalm 29:11

Peaceful strength, strong peace – gifts from my glorious Lord. What can stand in his way? What interferes with his abiding peace? Who is more strong? What circumstance overrules his wisdom? Glory!

Lord, forgive me for allowing inferior things to interrupt my glorifying you. You alone bring peace and strength to me for this moment and every moment to come. Thank you, Lord.
