Sea and Sky

DSCN3354

God has placed images all around us to show us how to proceed.

I can look at the ground beneath my feet, the pebbles that trip.

Or I can look at the sea, the sky, the clouds, the blue.

I can look forward in hope of the future, or look longingly backwards toward the past.

I am constantly presented these choices….hope or despair.  Trust or fear.

The sea and the sky are calling me onward.

Love, Lisa

Plans and Hopes

ireland

Planning to do this or that; a list of things to come

Thinking of what could maybe be, or maybe not be

But fixing my eyes firmly on You, my maybes fade away

Into the surety of what is, what will be, what will always be

Love, hope, forgiveness, mercy, healing

My mind quiets and settles at Your feet and in Your care.

What Will Be Revealed

DSCN3864

Things we can’t imagine

Things we can’t see

But will see past all imagining

And will be amazed…

“The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.”

~Deuteronomy 29:29 ESV

Blessings, Lisa

The Arrow

DSCN4045

I love this…the small yellow arrow says one of two things: “Mind your head” or “This is the way”.  Of course it might mean something entirely different, but that’s for other minds than mine.  It reminds me of the verse in Isaiah that says, “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”  (Isaiah 30:21)  Praying that I will listen to that voice today.  Blessings for your day, every step of your way.  Lisa
