What do I put aside, let go?
I feel that I haven't sought long enough today to be blessed by grace. But I remember his personness, how he startles me, delighting in surprising my expectations.
Comfort and feeling isn't a sure sign of God, but his word, his promise to be ever with us, is certain.

I wonder about pausing, waiting, resting, fulfilling commitments...
And joy in acceptance of the way that is set before me.

I so agree with this ... you have no idea. Sometimes we don't have to feel God is close to know it, we can know it, and then work on the feeling.

Hmm. (and that "hmm" wasn't like a "hm." it was like a "hummm" - if you know what I mean. :P)

Something I heard in yesterday's sermon from the church we have recently started attending, that we don't necessarily need to feel at peace in order to obey what it is we know God would have us do. We don't need signs to know that God is there. We do need to believe His Word. One of my constant prayers is Lord, help my unbelief.

I wonder a lot about that too. I enjoyed reading these thoughts!
