Today, my good friend and sister-in-Christ Jodie Bailey (www.jodiebailey.com) agreed to be my guest blogger. I thank her for giving me the inspiration to post about music that makes a difference in my life. Without her “The Song We Were Singing” Mondays, there would be no “How Can I Keep From Singing?” Mondays for this blog. Please check out her website and blog to be truly blessed. Grace & Peace, Sandy
I APOLOGIZE! This was not published on Monday as it should have been. I am still new to this blogging thing, so it’s probably my fault. But I don’t want you to miss what she has to tell you. Enjoy…and again, I apologize!
Aren’t there some days when it’s just good to know that God loves you? Sometimes, in the hustle and craziness of life, it’s easy to dash into prayer time and dash out again without really looking for God’s face. “Here’s my stuff, God. Thanks for listening. You have a good day now, okay?”
It’s good to slow down, though. To shut our mouths, rest our heads in His lap, and let Him run His hand over our hair. Oh, it’s in those times when I feel God’s love the most, when I lay my head down and let Him love me. I don’t say anything, I just get into His presence and let Him talk to me. Sometimes He says nothing. He’s just there. In a way, those are the best times, the ones that bring tears to my eyes because there’s no agenda, it’s just me and my Abba, being together. He likes to do that to me at the beach. We stand together, staring out over the water. There’s no dazzling insight, no amazing bolt from the blue, just us, hanging out. I just know there is a crystal sea in heaven simply so we can stand there together. That is what I look forward to the most!
The God whose words spoke everything into existence likes to sit still with me. Do we realize how incredible that is? If you’ve got a minute, sit with Him now and let Chris Tomlin’s “Unfailing Love” get you into that moment with God
