Been awake since 3:00 this morning. I have a lot on mind. A lot to do in a short time. A sad event taking place in my life. Taking more time to be with Jesus.
Now three and a half hours later, still to early to contact people, I haven't accomplished all that much except spending more time with God.
Don't you love the fact that at times when we can't pray with our words, we can pray with our hearts? That what it was this morning. Just sitting and praying with my heart. Letting Him feel my prayers. I feel that He responds more to me laying my heart open, instead of rattling off impressive word prayers. Not that we can't use word prayers, that's how I pray 98 percent of the time, but sometimes just letting our hearts pray and cry out to Him...
Peace, that's what He gives to us when we heart pray. Plain, simple, uncomplicated peace.
Now I can face my day. Go to the nursery to finish getting the plants for the yard. Planting those plants. Making potato salad and baked beans. Making the phone calls that need to be made. Taking Lance on a bike ride.
Resting in God.
