It's on those days I feel as dry as these hydrangea petals...brittle, starving for moisture--thirsting for the refreshment of Morning Dew.
I am as empty as these jars...silently waiting for the Spirit's filling.
It never ceases to amaze me that when I most yearn for this kind of peace, I am clinging mostly to myself and my desires, and what makes me happy, pleased, and accomodated.
What duplicity! What oxymoronic behavior. What an allegiance split! It isn't until I sit awhile by the still green waters of silence, that a deeper thirsting and hungering stirs within me. I do at those times want to disappear...truly lose myself in Him...the Way, the Truth and the Life.
I want to be so deeply in Christ...so enveloped by His love, so encased in His Spirit of peace, love, joy, and comfort--that I see nothing of myself--nor want nothing for myself. Bebo Norman best describes this desire for me in his song Disappear. CLICK HERE /link to hear him and read the lyrics as he sings. selahV
