Morning Moments

Stream

Quiet and still
Peaceful 
A new day born
Hopeful

Birds singing
Joyful
Heart beating 
Grateful

Before the rush
Before the noise
Cacophony of activity
Whirlwind of productivity
It's coming …

Be still
Wait
No rush
Meditate

All you need
All you desire
Here right now
Come up higher

Holy place
Sacred time
Not alone
Heavenly company

Breathe out
Fear and worry
Breathe in
Peace and joy

Gentle brook 
Deep and wide
Come and drink
Life inside

Stay awhile …

But later, it seemed as though life was rather like a bike ride; It was like a tandem bike and God was in the back, helping me pedal. 

I don't know when it was that He suggested we change places, but life has not been the same since. 

When I was in control, I knew the way. It was rather boring and predictable; I took the shortest route to travel between two points. 

But when God took the front seat, He knew delightful paths; up mountains.… Read the rest

The Great Exchange

Great ExchangeMusing replaced by amusement 
Preoccupation over meditation 
Noise for quiet 
Activity for depth

Elders replaced by celebrities 
Glitz over substance
Acting for being
Gossip for wisdom

Better replaced by bigger
Trendy over timeless
Speed for well-being
Quick fix for deep change

Time for a great reversal

Selfishness replaced by love 
Joy over sorrow 
Grace for guilt
Peace for the storm

Lies replaced by truth
Justice over abuse
Hope for despair 
Good news for bad

Lethargy replaced by passion
Purpose over aimlessness 
Courage for fear
Faith for doubt 

God over all and in all
