God is not silent.
I hear Him as I cry out for salvation,
I hear Him as I hope in His word,
I hear Him as I cast my anxieties on Him,
I hear Him as I plead for mercy and understanding,
This season in my life seems to be one of continued revelation of God – who He is- and revelation of man – who I am. One lifts me up to joyful heights of praise and the other kills my flesh. The ongoing increasing revelation of my God – HOLY HOLY HOLY – and my complete need and utter emptiness apart from His filling renewing saving life in me.
The manifestation of this is a blog that cries for mercy as I consider man… sin… my need; and rejoices to declare the truth that it is ALL about God. There is no place on His throne for me, except for the wonderful grace that I am in Him and He is in me…wonder of wonders, this hope of Glory.
Here is more sharing of His testimonies…so read, rejoice, re-tell the old old story of Jesus and His love.
