The Only One…

I was having a conversation with my mom about God, surprise, surprise :) But she said something that just clicked in me and I couldn’t wait to write about it.

She said, “I’m so glad I have God to talk to.” The reply that just fell out of my mouth and birthed this blog was, “He is the only One you really can talk to.”

That began a whole conversation between us and a profound realization on my part.

God is the only One you really can tell everything to, I mean I can tell my mom, sister, and husband everything, but I will be careful how I word things, so that I don’t worry them about certain situations. With God, I can tell Him just what I feel, and just how I feel it.

Why? Because He already knows. He is right there in my head, knowing every thought before I have it. Scary place, my head,  but not for Him :)

There are no secrets from Him. No holds barred, no sugar coating needed. The freedom to say everything I am thinking, feeling, want to do, emotion, anger, sadness, disappointment without fear, no fear that He will not understand or that He will never speak to me again. No fear.

We can tell Him things that we can’t tell our parents, spouses, siblings or friends, and we can tell Him in the way we really mean it without having to word it in a way that won’t cause our love ones to worry. (or think we’ve totally lost it)

We can always count on Him, 24 hours a day to listen. He is never too busy. We don’t have to give Him a minute to finish up what He’s doing, or just wait until tomorrow. We don’t have to make and appointment, or get in line. We never get His voice mail. He never has another call. We are never bothering or interrupting Him. We never have to worry that we will wake Him up if we need Him in the middle of the night. He is always home. He’s never too tired. You get the point.

We don’t have to worry if it’s a good time for Him. With Him and us, it’s always a good time.brooke-campbell-44085

Talk to the One that already knows what you are feeling. Ask the only One who is always willing and able to help you. Talk to the One, who loves you more than you can measure or comprehend.

Talk to the One who created you, and knows you better than you know yourself.

Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. –Matthew 4:7

No Longer Drowning

Seeing things through new eyes
All my tears have been dried
Like a baby that’s just been born
No longer between panic and peace am I torn
Some days still filled with heart pounding
At least now I am no longer drowning
Feelings of anxious electricty shooting threw my fingers
That panic and fear sometimes still lingers
Each day, each moments gets easier more and more
When I knocked and Jesus opened that door

Hummingbirds at peace

This post was inspired by Yassy. She wrote a poem about spring titled “spring’s realm”. She writes lots of beautiful poetry, and its one of the thing that draws me to her blog.

This particular poem mentioned hummingbirds, which prompted me to comment about how hummingbirds act so crazy over food, and feeders. They will fight, and dive bomb each other, and chase each other off the feeders. As if these little things could eat all that food by themselves.

One afternoon, after being outside for a bit, watching them fight endlessly over these feeders I said, “If y’all don’t stop fighting over those feeders, I’m taking them down.”

When I came back outside, this is what I found :)
