"Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;
Do not fret---it only causes harm."
Rest and enjoy the nectar of His love
so sweet and giving us energy that has us loving (c:
The LORD is not only for solving our problems
and getting us through the day.
There are troubles that do not need our attention,
and problem people who do not have to have our attention.
But to rest in the LORD does not mean to just have our problems solved and things of our lives worked out, but to be in His beauty enjoying His sweetness feeding us and caressing us through and through us > "Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us." (Romans 5:5)
A problem might not go away because we would just use our ways to get into another problem! Or, we might just waste our attention on some other thing, instead of first being attentive and submissive to You, LORD. So, may we not just try to solve problems so we can live the lives we want > "'He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.'" (John 12:25)
May we have Your presence (c: May we start fresh with You and in sharing with one another.
Yes, there is darkness,
but we have Your living and loving waters
blessing and caressing,
not being decided or guided
by the evil of this world.
But in the light of Your love
we are delighting in seeing
so much more than this world's darkness shows us.
"to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge;
that you may be filled with all the fullness of God."
