Telling us to obey instinct is like telling us to obey ‘people.’ People say different things: so do instincts. Our instincts are at war… Each instinct, if you listen to it, will claim to be gratified at the expense of the rest.
Rest in the knowledge that God is both abundantly gracious and ridiculously generous.
LIVE like someone, somewhere is always monitoring your existence, ‘because they are – some wise who are living know all too well that freedom and rest are truly deeded in the mental realm of those blessed to take up residence there – for there is no monitoring system needed from the grave…
Stone and sea are deep in life
Two unalterable symbols of the world
Permanence at rest
And permanence in motion
Participants in the power that remains
Radiate peace. Who knows? The peace you spread may create the only restful place in your environment.
THE NAKED HEART
From womb to tomb,
There came and went –
Poor or rich,
You will die with
All the wealth you harvest
In the living,
Will go to others when you are dead.
But the true test of a lion of God –
Is to keep giving with your own hands,
Before you rest in your final bed.
I am strong, but I am tired, Stephen, tired of always having to be the strong one, of always having to do the right thing.
Rested, shaved, coffee’d, steaked, you will be a different man.
God shines! God is light! God is life! God is good! God is kind! God is love! I will take time to be Holy because He is Holy. I will be still and know that He is God. I will rest in the light of God. God is faithful; He cannot lie. His Holy Spirit lives in my heart.
Home is where you can go and rest and be nothing
