Nelson Media has an android app called Jesus Calling by Sarah Young (for Apple users – check your app store). These daily passages are quite inspirational and opens your heart and mind to the word of God. I highly recommend the app. I find the wording of these passages beautifully written and referenced to bible verses.
The reading for 20 July touched my me significantly, like an epiphany, mainly “I hid heaven in your heart”
Whenever I’ve been told that “God is Love,” I get confused because it’s such a strong statement. Somehow, after reading the 20 July passage, the message settled inside my mind, inside my entire self, and now I practice being still for God.
This is what I have been doing lately, exploring my relationship with God. I struggled with facing him because I didn’t see myself worthy but now I feel foolish for hiding all these years. I feel as though I’m back to where I started before the craziness of “doing it on my own” and “taking full control of my life” happened; the feeling of “all that for nothing” but also believing that “it all adds to something.”
Another friend of mine brought it to my attention that I haven’t written any positive posts lately. It’s difficult because I feel like I am learning a new language and my vocabulary isn’t ready to articulate the positive emotions that build the ideas and thoughts in my head. Nevertheless, I tried and came up with the following (inspired by Sarah Young):
In a brand new day
a new horizon is laid out
a brand new breeze coming in from the east
a different light shining through my eyes
and when I feel this love
I smile at the truth
as I close my eyes
and embrace the beauty of heaven
right here in my heart
