My Ponderings this morning ...

Image
The Word of God is so penetrating and ALIVE, at times, it makes my heart appear to STOP ... yet at other times it quickens it to pound through my chest like that of a vulnerable rabbit ... I wonder how much more can I bear at the same time I crave for more with what can only be described as delightful trepidation!
A great fear of the Lord has been coming on me of late as I listen to His Word ... they are not just words anymore, they breathe and dance and LIVE!!!! ...
They are the EXACTING tools laced with precision borne of our great and Hidden architect...
The Bible now is an entirely different experience, I cherish the word ... I hunger for it ... I only want His Voice ... and I have become so sensitive to every other voice attempting to make itself heard ... any inflection in a voice that is ever so slightly off, suddenly causes me great pain ...
It truly is the Narrow road and few will find it ...
Lord help me always stay on that narrow road ... hidden in You ...
Lo…

The virgin’s name was Mary. And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!” However, when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.” Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do …

Never forgetting you dear Jerusalem, placing you in our hearts as we commune with Him ....

Never forgetting you dear Jerusalem, placing you in our hearts as we commune with Him ....

"By the rivers of Babylon...we wept, when we remembered Zion...If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning. If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy." (From Psalm 137)

A good article & reminder -
" Medieval maps show Jerusalem as the center of the universe, calling it Umbilicus Mundi (Navel of the World). There is a world map with Jerusalem at its center attached to an ancient Latin manuscript of the Book of Psalms (c. 1250). The map illustrates Psalm 74:12, "For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth [ours]. 

We ought to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and our motivation must come from Scripture as we examine God's relationship to Israel. In Luke 19:41, we see that Jesus Himself wept over the city.
In addition, we see the …
