Silent Surrendered : The Way To Be !!

Silent , surrendered, calm and still,
Open to the word of God.
Heart humbled to his will.
Offered is the servant of God.

When I read these words my conclusion as they apply to my life is " I wish !" 

But that is what I desire to be and as they say, the desire to desire is often good enough for God. 

So that is what I bring to God today - a faltering and pretty decrepit effort to surrender my will and to open myself to the word of God. 

I turn my face to focus on the light, the light from Heaven---and not the cold, the darkness, or the winter the earth is enduring, not the lingering doubts but instead on how everything on earth is straining towards that Light.

I pause for a moment and think of the love and the grace that God showers on us all.

The music helps !

I am so with you on this one Phil, and so is anyone else who is real and truthful. The music is wonderful. I think that desire is what it is all about....he reads hearts, right? I think it was Teresa of Avila who said something like, 'desire is 90% of the spiritual life'. Thank God that he is perfect so that we don't have to be. Too much energy is spent on 'ourselves' when we should just live and love and leave the rest to him.
