Peace By The Pond
This little pond is a 10 minute walk north of my house,
and is the beginning of my beloved biking trail.
Sometimes I walk and sometimes I bike.
Sometimes I just go and sit quietly. It is a sanctuary to me.
God is always with me no matter where I am…
But, it is good to find a quiet place ,
Away from the busyness and noise of life.
It is one way I keep my sanity in a world that
places so many demands on me.
When it is quiet and I really listen,
I can hear the voice of God…
Not in an audible voice but in my spirit,
And in the things around me,
He uses all the senses that He created in me
To draw me near to Him.
It had been awhile since I had been to the pond.
Two things that He has been speaking to me about this week,
is to “Be Still and know He is God”. Actually He has been
trying to tell me that for awhile. Sometimes when I don’t
“Listen”… He will stop me dead in my tracks. That can be painful,
but sometimes necessary.
That brings me to the second thing He has been showing me this week.
“There is a Reason for everything that happens in my life”.
I have had good times and hard times in my life but I have never
walked alone as long as Jesus has been my Lord and Saviour .
So no matter what happens in my life or yours….. God is Good
and Loves His Children…. He wants us to stay close to Him,
and if we wander He will do what it takes to bring us back
into His Loving Arms. If we fall , He will be there waiting to pick us up!
God Bless you all and remember God Loves You .
Sincerely Dianne :)
