Messages from my phone

The other day I was looking at my Instagram feed, listening to my Christian playlist shuffling on my iPod, and saw this beautiful image by missymoore. The saying spoke to me and her image is just beautiful. (shared with permission)

" 'Press on, stay, strong, & keep believing' I'm sure someone else needs to hear this. Someone like me, who is praying for specific things and trusting God with His answers. This is all apart of walking out our faith and trusting our Heavenly Father with His perfect plans. I have this sitting on my kitchen counter as a reminder to not waiver when I worry and to believe that the best is yet to come."
Our conversation went like this:

Me: "I just copied that to put into my planner so I can see it! And, Jason Gray's 'Sparrows' song just started playing on my iPod. "

Missy: "wow! Crazy! I just looked at the song lyrics...sounds like God is trying to say something! 😊"

Me: "O yes, he was speaking to me for sure!"

The link to the Jason Gray "Sparrows" is here: Jason Gray Sparrows

Sometimes God speaks to us through others we have never met in person, using technology that sometimes can cause more distance between people. Today I'm grateful for those I've never met in person, who share their faith, through photography, using social media for the greater good! Blessings to you missymoore!

Meditation on Psalm 46:10



I was introduced to this meditation by the Rev. Dr. Judy Siker at a day-long retreat titled "Cultivate Contentment" October 15, 2016 at St. Peter's By The Sea Presbyterian church near where I live. 

This had a profound impact on me. I was amazed that it seemed so simple but was so powerful. I have shared it with a few others. Someone recently mentioned that they needed a reminder, so I thought posting it would be helpful to (hopefully) more people.

Repeat each phrase slowly & quietly, breathing between each phrase, slowing down to listen to the words & for God's voice.

Be still and know that I am God

Be still and know

Be still

Be

Thank you Rev. Siker for this lovely meditation, and to my friend VR, who invited me for the day!!
