Speaking of intimacy with God

January 28, 2011 — Leave a comment

Be still and know that He is God
Be still and know He is our Father
Come rest your head upon His breast
Listen to the rhythm of His
unfailing heart of love
Beating for His little ones
Calling each of us to come
Be still, Be still

Steven Curtis Chapman

***

And how blessed all those in whom You live,
whose lives become roads You travel;
They wind through lonesome valleys, come upon brooks,
discover cool springs and pools brimming with rain!
God-traveled, these roads curve up the mountain, and
at the last turn—Zion! God in full view!

Psalm 84:5-7 The Message

***

What a fellowship, what a joy divine,
leaning on the everlasting arms;
what a blessedness, what a peace is mine,
leaning on the everlasting arms.

Leaning, leaning,
safe and secure from all alarms;
leaning, leaning,
leaning on the everlasting arms.

[Unfortunately I could not find a link for Ladysmith Black Mambazo’s rendition of this hymn, but it’s wonderful]

***

“Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in Him,
for He shields him all day long,
and the one the Lord loves rests between His shoulders.”

Deuteronomy 33:12

***
This week’s special
“Give attention to Me, My people
and give ear to Me, My nation.”

Isaiah 51:4
