Until next Monday, it will be a quiet place here. I need to take time to clear the clutter and the noise in my head. I believe God is trying to speak — and I need to pull away so I can hear.

I am praying for a renewal and infilling.

I know it can be found in His Presence.

I pray, I am found in His Presence.

Blessings to you, my friends.

Thankful for…

527. The REST of God.

    I so needed that quote: “Thou hast formed us for Thyself, and our hearts are restless till they find rest in Thee.” First, I must ask, what book is that? Second, I am right smack in this place. I ended my 21 day fast yesterday, and I’ve found myself still off kilter. This is why. I must rest in Him until He puts rest in me. I know this week will be good for you. See you Monday, sweet friend.

      I know this comment is from a while ago, but I had gotten very behind in reply. I decided to come back to reply because it is so important to me to let the people who comment know how blessed I am by their words. I am going to be taking another week off next week. I think these times of refreshing are going to really help me :)

      Blessings to you,
