The Edge

Isaiah 48:17 This is what the LORD says— your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: "I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.

Right to the edge. I have been taken right to the edge of the cliff, I know God has me here for a reason. I know that He is bringing me to the edge of the cliff to bring me to my knees. There is something to learn, I have gotten two daily devotionals today on that.

It’s hard to deal with. I like comfort. I like to go out a little, as long as I have the comfort to come back to. But right now, there is no other comfort to go back to other than the arms of God. That’s it, and that is enough.

So my friends, if you see less of me or you think I am a little distance, it is because I am listening. I am listening to what God has to say and where He wants me to be. But I will tell you, I am one who wears my emotions on my sleeve, and that probably won’t change so you will know.

Isaiah 45:3 I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the LORD, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel.

being quiet is good. God will grant you peace. and if you happen to fall off the cliff, well then, there will be a big fluffy air thinger to catch you, aka, Jesus Christ.
love and peace.

Deb said...

...wishing I lived nearby so I could be one of "dagirlz" --but I don't drink coffee...ugh.

Here's my Scripture for you:

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight. --so well-known but so easily forgotten!
