There are occasions in which comments come with perfect timing. Those times when you very least expect to hear them. When you weren't looking for them. When they come almost as if asking a question. "Did you know...?" Out of the blue.

Someone says it and suddenly the questions in your mind are stilled. The anxiety and doubt you didn't even know were boiling beneath the surface are revealed and dispelled in a moment. You are encouraged. You are reminded.

You are humbled.

And did you know it was so simple? Did you know it would be so easy? So paradoxically uncomplicated. [(I love speaking in riddles.)] Beautifully constructed. Methodically orchestrated. With purpose and intent. Did you know it would be so simple as this? Just remember: Even closer.

It's all hinged on this.
Not me. Him.

Praise God for His faithfulness.
Praise Him for His patience and unending mercy.
And glory to God, this unconditional love!

And I realize that I am still learning. Still growing. Still making mistakes. Still knowing. And it is in the stillness, when I let the waters quiet and become like a mirror, His reflection shows and I learn to move like He moves.

mmm beautiful post. I'd love to talk with you about what you're learning; it's always a breath of fresh air to exchange experiences with you.

This reminds me of our conversation earlier this week. It has been shadowing my every thought, actually. "Moving as He moves"

How crazy is that?! I love your posts and the way you speak. I believe I'll now be following.
(how is that for speaking in rhymes? I believe I quite like it.)

Also, thank you for the video link! I was SO moved, and I felt God tugging on my heart. So amazing. So powerful.
