Letting God love us sounds good, but how can we actually experience being God’s beloved in our actual lives — today?
We need to dwell as his Beloved. We need to give God permission to plant these beautiful moments of beauty, love, tenderness, and sweetness in our souls.
We need to give ourselves permission to DWELL — to make a home — in all that is beautiful, sweet, quiet and restful.
Listen to God’s whispers to us today — I’m sharing a page from my journey with you today.
Before I do, I’d like to invite you to join me tomorrow on the blog here for a special Lent Series: One Word Lent.
One Word Lent
We will begin #OneWordLent — as a way to enjoy our Wednesday #OneWordCoffee series.
You can share any word that is speaking to you during Lent on Wednesday’s blog post. You can simply comment or link up a blog post.
If you’d like a journaling prompt, week 1 is: remember.
Please share today’s post to invite a friend to join us for our One Word Lent Series. It would be great to have kindreds swap stories and share words along the journey together, week by week.
May your one word become a prompt to make a home in all that is lovely during this soulful season of Lent.
A quiet conversation with God that sits like a seed in our soul. A quiet whisper, creating space in us to listen and receive. God’s quiet love for you. Today.
Dare To Choose God’s Quiet Love Today
Something big is changing inside me.
It’s as quiet as it feels beautiful and odd.
Because I’ve always been a planner. I like to plot my steps by where I want to go — and then I figure out how to get there.
And that is how my todays have been planned. To get to a destination.
But, God is longing to be more than a destination.
He’s offering me His hand instead of a map.
God is inviting me to a new way of living — and I believe this invitation is for you too.
God is calling us: dare to be my beloved. Today.
Once a week on the blog here, we’ve been taking time on Wednesdays to slow down and enjoy virtual One Word Coffee: to stop and practice the art of listening with a community of friends: what is God whispering to me today?
It takes practice to change how we’ve been trained to be: planning for tomorrow and getting things done. We have to be intentional to stop and listen to God’s voice of love.
Love is intentional. Love is quiet. This quieter Voice is calling us to stop — stop worrying and planning for tomorrow as a way of distraction and procrastination…
