I’m walking along here at the lake, and the sun is bright and sparkling on the water. Even though it’s chilly, the sun is warm. And I’m noticing this phenomenon we can see all the time but probably don’t really stop and look at. This morning, as I walk along the shoreline, the sparkly reflection of the sun walks with me. It moves right along with me. I know there is a simple scientific explanation to this. But I love that the Lord created this marvel. No matter how far I walk right, the sun will be walking with me. Is that the coolest thing ever that the sun is walking with me? Every day, I see this more and more, how God reveals Himself, His truths, His love, His goodness in His creation.

The Stillness Journal

This morning I am exhausted and stressed. And I am here in my stillness walk in this beautiful and peaceful place. And the Lord is here with me. With me! Yet, I’m all focused on stress distress.

But I’m thinking about the kingdom of God because I’m looking at the beautiful majestic Connie tree. And I hear the Lord saying to me, “I’m right here. My kingdom of love is right here. All you have to do is step into it. It’s just one step. The door is right here. Come in the door.”
