Trusting Him with our pace and our PLACE!

 

FROM THE BOOK UNINVITED...On busyness and agenda's:

Imagine a little girl running with a cup in her hand sloshing out all it contains.  She thinks what will refill her is just ahead.  Just a little father.  She presses on with sheer determination and clenched teeth and an empty cup clutched tight.  She keeps running toward an agenda HE NEVER SET and one that will NEVER SATISFY.  She sees Him and holds out her cup.  But she catches only a few drops as she runs by Him, because she didn't stop long enough to be filled up.  EMPTY CAN'T BE TEMPERED WITH MERE DROPS.

"If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you"  John 15:7 (Key phrase:  HIS WORD ABIDES IN YOU so that we're asking according to HIS will) 

"Jesus doesn't participate in in the rat race.  He's into the SLOWER rhythms of life.  Like abiding, delighting, and dwelling--all words that require us to trust Him with our place and our pace." 

"Delight yourself in the Lord and HE will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4
