I believe that life is given us so we may grow in love, and I believe that God is in me as the sun is in the color and fragrance of a flower-the Light in my darkness, the Voice in my silence. -Helen Keller –
Abba, there are times when I grow weary
Of seeking to understand and feeling misunderstood
Of loving without being loved
Of knowing without being known.
But I push ever forward God
Because I know of no other response
That would honor your love, your mercy,
When I am fully known only by you.
Help me, Abba, help me.
I don’t know for what I plea
But you do, and so I ask
Help me, Abba, show me.
I am but a child, wholly ignorant,
I give you my heart, my life
To do with as you wish
For nothing and no one is so good as you.

Look, see how calm and still the waters are? Yet right on the other side of that is a rushing waterfall. God, what is the significance of that?
And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate (solitary) place, and there he prayed. Mark 1:35
Abba, what do you have to say to me?
Peace, like a palm pressed firmly against your chest.
Every creation, every life, is Mine, created by Me, with intention. Have I put any less thought into you, child of Mine? Trust me. Trust in my timing. For different works require different efforts. How long must water flow to cut paths through the earth and shape the land? How patient must the seed of a tree be to reach maturity? Is it any different with you? And how much more am I invested in the work I do in you than the water or the tree? Be confident in My love for you.
