Fear Not

Come to the waters edge and look into the shimmery reflection. There is a face that ripples with the emotion of fear and  worry; solitude blankets the cold dark water where the depth is not known below. As the evening rolls away into a starry dream there is a chill and shudder that remembers no more.

Mountainous thoughts then swirl like a furor, comes in waves and fits. Where once was a photograph with laughing faces and carefree happy people, where no one knew the deepest cries or thoughts, now uncovered and left alone.  Vulnerable and unknowing about what there be ahead, no strong branch that visibly stands, holding up the fruit within  her twigs.

There is a weakened and withering sense  of misty remembrances that boldly  stalks about leaving scars and tears on a path leading  into the future . Shadows follow and threaten to remove all safety. Thankfully, God knows our frame and takes us to that rivers edge and helps us to see clearly, His amazing grace, strength, mercy and protection. 

Like a band of dessert travelers goes the one, weary and alone, but emboldened by His words of love and promises. He gives  strength like unto an army when one is alone yet walking with Him. Like a baby in the arms of a loving parent, there is  a warm retreat and comfort.   We never walk alone.    

Return to the place of security and courage, to face the fray. There is one who stands beside us, who carries us and prays for us, who cares and provides all of our needs. He is the Great I Am. He loves us in our frail and weakened state, when we trust in Him.

Come to the waters edge and take a walk into the unknown waters of healing. He will arm us and keep us with wisdom and the mind of Christ. He gives us the feet of a deer to jump over the rough places. Fear not,God Almighty is He!

Simple dance

A winding dusty road, leads to the green pastures. A breezy, fresh breath  of air that I inhale deeply, is taking me on a ride along  that joyous path. Memories and laughter,  a smile, words of love, and encouragement, are like the soft Summer rain, renewing and amazing in splashes of light and triumph. I sigh, I remember, I walk along the way with You, Oh God, holding me in your Wonderful  hands.

 There are rays of sun beaming down on all that is good and right in this world, bringing warmth and hope. What can we do? We walk in the light, as He is in the light. We implore others to join in this walk of life. We give inspiration and encouragement, blessings and love.Your  arms of security are there to steady us as we go along the way.

Lord of all, take us there to your place of peace and blessing, the place where you are, that we may be in your Holy will. Oh God I ask for your precious heart of love to wrap around your people to abide in You. Help us to  be like Jesus,telling  the lost of Your goodness and be a bit of heaven for someone who may be struggling as they go. Cause us, your people, to remain in You, your words of truth, your promises forever!.

Father, Glorious Lord, you are what we all need in this dying world, that fades with the noonday  sun. The frailty of mankind, is slowly ebbing, the world as we knew it is dying....BUT, alas, we know you are The Great I AM, the KING of ALL!! You are  the everlasting Father and Prince of peace, no matter what ails us or this world. We have the knowledge of your grace, mercy, truth and unconditional love, There, may our minds rest in You. You are our field,our meadow, our streams of refreshing in the dessert, winding along and giving us the cool, bubbling waters to wash in and be replenished in,  to see your creative reflection in! 

Happy,are those who walk in Your ways and to keep them, those who dance the simple dance of life, with YOU!
