by Marcie Bridges,
My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and give praise.
Awake, my glory! Awake, lute and harp!
I will awaken the dawn.
I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing to You among the nations.
For Your mercy reaches unto the heavens,
And Your truth unto the clouds.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
Let Your glory be above all the earth.
AWAKEN MY SOUL
to the wonder
of cloudless blue skies
green shoots from soil dry
buds pink on dogwood trees
the flitting of butterflies
and the buzzing yellow bee.
Awaken my soul
to the beauty
of the earth You created
open my eyes
so I can see
the love You whisper
all around me.
~Marcell Warner Bridges
Today, let’s just pause, take a moment and relax in God’s presence. In the beauty of His works. In the holiness of His touch. Let’s pray for peace. Pray for comfort and pray that our hearts will be opened to see God in ways we’ve never seen Him before. He didn’t give us His creation to worship it, He gave us His creation to help us worship HIM!
Your world will change when you stop letting it revolve around yourself and you surrender to the glorious, wonderful, all – consuming worship of your Savior in thanksliving.
Selah. Pause. Shift your focus to the One who loves you more than anything else in this universe.
From My Heart to Yours,
