A moment

Watching the clouds go by;
tiny water droplets amassing far in the west,
in the serene blue sky.
Birds chirping happily in their nest;
an infusion of pleasant melodies.
Trees waving cheerfully
in the cool afternoon breeze
Mind adrift,
floating in the distance.
Lost in time.
Daffodils smiling in the sunshine,
Feels like a Deity
healing my heart,
soothing my soul,
speaking to me.
In that moment,
I sense God.

Ever Just sat outside one nice summer day and observed your surrounding? I look at nature and it just Shows God's creativity and ingenuity! God is just amazing and this just captures that for me,hope you are blessed! :-)

Connected/In your presence

Head bowed
Hands raised
Heart in total surrender
Waiting to hear from you
The simple pleasure of gazing into your eyes
Being still before you
Blissful Intimacy
For our hearts to be connected
Basking in your presence, not expecting anything in return
Burdens laid at your feet
In you I know I am complete
Nothing really satisfies
Like when you hold me and call me by name
The work, the money, and the cars – they don’t gratify.
Remaining in your love and enjoying your company
Soul longing for you as the deer longs for water
In your presence
Where all fear is gone
I find my rest
In your presence
Your Ubiquitous essence
Encompasses me round about.
In that place where I belong
Seeking you with all my heart till I find you there
The fullness of my joy
My refuge and strength
A very present help
I can come before you with singing and thanksgiving
Early in the morning
Receiving what you say
As a precious treasure; a heart-felt love letter
Till I connect with you.

Refiner's fire

Rough edges. Jagged borders. Cold disposition.

Accumulated over the years

due to rejection. Abuse

Life’s way of making you want to disappear

Throwing away all you hold dear

Holding a false perception that you are just a ‘mere’

- A Mere person and nothing more

But somehow finding yourself right in the middle

In the heat of it all

Where those rough edges are being smoothed

Wounds are being soothed

And the healing begins

Still in the fire,

Changes like spare parts

Come together in the assembly hall

Till you no longer look like YOU

The mirror now reads:

A spitting image of the refiner


Most of us have gone through "fire" in one way or another. Through our trials and tribulations, rough edges were smoothed and we were molded into shape until we more closely resembled what we were meant to be.

God allows us to go through hard times so that we may grow and become smooth and shiny. His goal is for us to become a reflection of Him that not only He can see, but also so others can see Him in us.

The amazing thing is that while we ae in the fire,He's holding us and watching us because if we are in there too long, we may get damaged. So he cares! He's just trying to ensure you come out as PURE GOLD!
