~Melted~

~Melted~ “When you heart has been wounded and it becomes hard, it’s not always easy to make it ‘feel’ again, and allow it to become vulnerable again… But one good thing is that God knows how to melt our hearts again and soften us and He has His ways at just the right time… Its good when it does happen and I hope and pray my heart remains pliable… I want it to stay melted, soft, and penetrable”. I actually wrote this a long long time ago but amazingly these revelations remain forever true and are always applicable in our lives, we will always encounter ‘heart hardening experiences’. Its something that I seem to have to fight against now and I know that I have become hardened in some ways but I think there must be a way to turn a heart hardening experience into a strengthening one rather than…

Floating… The test of trust…

.ƸӜƷ. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY ƸӜƷ. The test of trust… Since I have been out walking regularly again this last few months, and sharing thoughts and ponderings with you, there has been a recurrent theme. It’s been all about water, the ocean and the sea. An image of me floating in the sea is equivalent to the trust game. I may have shared this with you before but when I was a young child at a friends birthday pool party I nearly drowned. At least that’s what it felt like to me. I managed to get myself out and I never told anyone about this incident. To me this is symbolic of where I learned look after myself, perhaps allow fear in, and not trust other people? After this incident, from this point I refused to learn how to swim at school. I went with other kids in my class…

In the deep

ƸӜƷ. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY ƸӜƷ. In the deep… An image… I’m in the water at the beach by myself… Treading water. Peaceful stillness as I’m paddling there. A strong sense of calm. I don’t like being in the deeper water but God shows me He is the water.  It’s a scene of quiet calm still peace in the deep of God. No fear of anything because God is the water. The gentle sound of waves just barely lapping…  Imagine if I really let go of my security blanket… The ability to touch the bottom knowing I’ve had a bit of fear about water, not being able to touch bottom.  Imagine feeling that security. I can’t quite do it yet… But I will. For the moment habit and the fear of really really letting go hinder me…   But I’ll come here everyday and experience this enveloping of love.  Just…

Known…

O LORD, you have searched me [thoroughly] and have known me. You know my downsitting and my uprising; You understand my thought afar off. You sift and search out my path and my lying down, and You are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word in my tongue [still unuttered], but, behold, O Lord, You know it altogether. You have beset me and shut me in–behind and before, and You have laid Your hand upon me. Your [infinite] knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high above me, I cannot reach it. ~Psalm 139:1-6~ Known… Oh I am so relieved that there is one who KNOWS me! One thing that I always long for is to be understood and for people to know me. When they don’t in the past it has troubled me but now I understand that this is not always to be…
