Word Filled Wednesday - May 6, 2009





I will put my dwelling place among you, and I will not abhor you.I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be my people. Leviticus 26:11-12


These are some of "My People". They are family and friends that I hold with a firm grasp in my heart. They all play such wonderful and important roles in my life. I know that my life is so blessed for having each of them in it.


Can you imagine the Almighty God feeling this way? Can you imagine his laughter and delight as we skip and play our way through life? Can you imagine his sorrow and frustration when we choose decisions that hurt ourselves or others? Can you imagine sitting across from him sipping some tea and playing a game of Apples to Apples? I find myself longing to feel the same closeness with God that I do with my loved ones....and then I hear it in the back of my mind...."Sweet Child...I am only a prayer away"

  12. I feel this way too! I alway worry I love my husband more than I love God. But, our partner is our "road sign" to God, leading us to a more holy life. They (our hubby, friends, family) show us what love is, and how great it can be--and they are only the road signs--not the destination--how amazing that must be!!
