I'm on the mountain with HIM!

Psalm 144: 1-4 The Message
1-2 Blessed be God, my mountain, who trains me to fight fair and well. 
   He's the bedrock on which I stand, 
      the castle in which I live, 
      my rescuing knight, 
   The high crag where I run for dear life, 
      while he lays my enemies low. 

 3-4 I wonder why you care, God 
      why do you bother with us at all? 
   All we are is a puff of air; 
      we're like shadows in a campfire. 

I'm standing on my "Jesus" which I stand.  As I read this verse about us being a puff of air to Him, I started thinking about how nice it would be to be able to breathe easily when I go out doors.  I love the outdoors!  I miss the outdoors!  For some reason right now God has me indoors.  I'm in an anonymous season in my life right now, according to author "Alicia Britt Chole".  ~Anonymous~ Our hidden years are God's sacred spaces to be rested in, not rushed through and most definitely never to be regretted."  

So God my mountain, I refuse to feel like I'm in a valley!  I'm on the mountain with you!  You have trained me to fight and I will continue to fight this battle of lung issues I've had for the last year, you are my rescuing knight and I trust that you will continue to lay my enemies low!

Waiting because He is Worthy!  Learning to BE STILL and REST!

How about you?  Are you trying to rush through a sacred space that God has placed you in?  Try to Be Still and Rest and see what it is that God is going to teach you through whatever it is that you are going through.  So glad he cares!  Thank you God for caring for ME!

Resting in HIM,

Ah yes...I totally get the whole "rushing through" idea. Your post has reminded me to be still and wait on God. (waiting=not something i am particularly good at)

Climb that "thang!"

I wrote this post back in January of 2007  and I still have those pesky bugs and the enemy is still trying to rob me of my joy on a weekly ...
