Learning to abide

An abiding life is a faith filled life

“and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.  The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.  I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing.”  ~ Galatians 2:20-21

Here ~ Kari Jobe

Come and rest here
Come and lay your burdens down
Come and rest here
There is refuge for you now

You’ll find His peace
And know you’re not alone anymore
He is near
You’ll find His healing
You’re heart isn’t shattered anymore
He is here

Chorus:
Breathe in
Breathe out
You will
You will find Him here

I will rest in You

You will find Him
You will find Him here

Driving around in the busy, busy world I live in, the words to this song took me back to a special memory of being still, being quiet and letting the glory and beauty of Creation fill every inch of me.  I am reminded once again . . .

ABIDE.

The goal of abiding is not to better me, but for me to trust deeper.  My failures just might be God’s victory!

About beegee10

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
