OVERWHELMED.....That's where I was this morning.
Something was told to me yesterday, something going back many years.
Something which has hurt another person.
Something they still hang onto.....
This made me fret.
It caused me heartache!
And now it was my choice, what was I to do????
I decided to get up and make myself a cup of tea.
Hot tea with milk is regenerating, especially first thing in the morning.
For some reason? Instead of picking up my bible, I picked up a wonderful book that I had read long ago by Jeanne Guyon.
Jeanne was a French woman from the1700's, and remarkably ahead of her time.
This lady specifies how to read God's Word slowly, ingesting every morsel.
Immediately a scripture verse popped into my mind.
"My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour."
Yes, like the mother of Jesus, I can also say this.
My soul does rejoice in God, because yes, I too, am a sinner.
I began to meditate on this Word, as Jeanne describes.
I pictured that Word, held as if food in my mouth.
Now as I savour the flavour, and as I allow fulfillment before the swallow,
my nourishment is completed and I recieve the nurturing.
His Word, becomes live food within me...
I am stimulated to become more like Him.
The apostle Paul once said.
"To be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord."
(2 Corinthians 5:8)
I used to think this meant, at death.
Then this morning a different revelation!
I now believe, when we read the Word with total conviction,
we are transported to the throne room, and into His presence.
Rejoice in the Lord, for He is, our Salvation.
