Knees to the earth.

On my walk this morning, I saw this photo in the sky.

I saw a cross and thought of it as a loving reminder of the blood Jesus shed for me.  I owe my life to Him and want to always proclaim,"Lord, here I am."  I bow down to Him and to all He is ... simply because He is God.  He is my only worth and beauty. 

On my knees I will bless Him and lift Him high -- on my knees I will treasure Him and give thanks for what He has done in my life.  I ask, "How may I bless Your heart Lord?"  Whisper to me Father the ways in which I may bring a smile to your face even make You blush.  Tell me Lord Jesus as I walk this earth, how to serve You, how to treasure You more and how to glorify Your name.

This weekend as you prepare for worship remember all that He has done for you.  Tell Him, "Lord, here I am" ... and bring your knees to the earth in adoration, in thanksgiving and in praise.  Embrace Him for all He is and bow down Him.  Worship with passion our God who loves you.

GBY!  Barbara :)

Barbara, I just love your posts. Thank you for the picture. I am learning that God speaks to us constantly. I need to learn to hear! I am praying on it.

How do people who do not want to talk about God, react to you?  If they want to buy or sell a house, are they afraid you will talk too much about God and NOT call you?

I have a dear friend who can't stop talking about God and doctrine, so I try not to lead him anywhere near that subject.  Just wondering.  God bless.

Hi Sharon: Thank you for the encouragement.  God uses the simpliest things like a cloud formation to show us His all-consuming love. Thank you for your comments. GBU! Barbara

Hi Kenneth: Great question!  I allow the Holy Spirit to lead through wisdom and discernment. 

I have only been in one situation that I can recall where it was said to me, "lets leave God out of this" and therefore, I respected this.  God's love never has to be pushed onto another rather, it draws people to ask questions.  When they do the door opens for ttestimony of God's great love for us. 

Thank you for your question and post.  I appreciate both. God bless you!  Barbara

Hi Chuck:  It's great to "see" you again and you're very welcome.  One can't stop praising Him for the love He offers us.  It's amazing!  I hope the kids and you are doing great!  GBU!  Barbara

Hi Carol! You're welcome and it's nice to hear fro you! I guess that's why I love deciphering cloud formations -- one never knows what they'll see or even what they can glean from them. I love it when He takes me back to where it all started -- at the Cross.  Thanks for the post too.  GBU! Barbara :)
