Quietly I sit...

Quietly I sit...
eyes closed.
heart receptive.

My spirit longing.


The silence is deafening.

Yet, it speaks in gentle whispers.
Bringing peace and comfort
deep within.

I sit in the stillness.

Lord, I seek You.
I want to know You.
I want to be filled, Lord.

Pour out to me in such abundance
that I may overflow.

Amaze me!
Astound me!
Show me Your Glory!

Embody me with the truth of Your Word.
Empower me with the might of Your Spirit.
Energize me with the glory of Your Presence.

Stir my spirit...
Consume me...
Fill me with the wonder of You.

Infuse me with Joy
Magnify Your Word in my soul.

As I am still before Him,
the warmth of His Presence
begins to flow through me.

Bringing tears of renewal.
Tears of restoration.
Tears of unmitigated Joy.
Cleansing tears.

As He speaks to my heart,
I feel His touch.
My spirit is moved and He ministers
to the depths of my being.
Revealing truth.
Revealing love.

I am ablaze with the splendor of His Glory.
It leaves me with a deep hunger for more.

Quietly I sit...
eyes closed.
heart receptive.

As I read your post, I am convinced it would delight my soul beyond words to sit with you some day in the presence of our loving Father. To sing praises with you. To pray with you. To experience God with you.
I see Him in you through the passion of your words. And I love it!

Your words are so beautiful and encouraging! Thank you for blessing me!!!


Oh Beth----

You know how God always connects our hearts and His thoughts toward us?? Well I am 2 days late getting here - but like the angel Gabriel, I had good reason.

God's perfect timing is why!!

Just this morning I wrote in my journal the passage about Elijah in 1 Kings 19:11-12 [the Whisper]... then my friend Laura just wrote about BREATHING!!

There is so much more my heart hears from the very Heart of God.

You wrote:
"Yet, it speaks in gentle whispers."

I take great JOY in
His Gentle Giant Whispers,
{{Hugs}} Stephanie
JESUS ONLY in 2010
