  1. Again and again today {already}, I am Seeing how the *whirl and twirl of living* is for such purpose–He allows it as discipline to Trust Him, to look intently for Him and His Grace, and to See.

    Rich blessings, Saundra, as you sift out the purpose in it All…

    • Well put Amy! His Grace often seems elusive, then I realize I just was not looking closely enough to see it. Blessings to you and may the whirl and twirl become a treasured place of discovery.

  2. Oh, we are made for more…more of Jesus, more of His plan, more or who He’s called us to be. I often fill that more in ways that can’t satisfy in the end (um, more Nutella, please?). Thanks for the reminder of what those heart longings are really all about!

    • Oh Holley, we are kindred spirits! I’ve found “the more” in the bottom of a few of Nutella/PB myself. Always refreshing when I finally find the real reason for my hunger. Blessings to you!

  3. So beautifully written and so jam-packed with Truth! Thanks so much for reminding me of my ever-present need for more of HIM. God bless!

  4. Oh yes … He is always inviting us into something more, something deeper, something greater and more substantial. Now to make that choice to respond to Him … in the midst of the crazy busyness of our lives …

    He still beckons in that still, small voice like He did to that little boy Samuel {1 Samuel 3}.

    • You are so right Linda, He is always inviting. What a loving Bridegroom we have! Even when we repeatedly deny Him our presence, He still beckons us again to “come away my Beloved”. Blessings to you and praying His call today finds you receptive.

  5. Beautifully written and soulfully expressed. Sometimes we (I) forget in the busyness that my life with God has been spent swimming in the shallows and there’s so much more waiting for me in the deep.

    Very grateful for this. Thank you.

    • Thank you Anne for your encouraging words on this post. Shallow waters with God are good, but so far below what He wants for us. Launch out into the deep with Him! He’s waiting for you!
