I love morning...not the getting up and going to work part, but the quiet and the stillness. I enjoy my cup of coffee, read God's Word and bask in the stillness before my day begins. It feels like a clean slate before me. I can more easily hear God's voice because my mind is less cluttered.

Day 6 of Write 31 Days 2021

Silvrback blog imageJesus longs to make us, make me whole. He wants to heal us, just like the blind man who received sight. Jesus wants me to see and perceive things with His heavenly eyes and gain His perspective. Just as He healed the lame man, Jesus wants me to walk. Walk, not just in a daze going through the motions, but in a close relationship with Him on . . .
