Encounters with God

Saturday evening I went walking at one of my favorite places. Surrounded by God’s creation, a few passersby, quiet and able to spend quiet moments with Jesus (actually about an hour).
As I walk I talk with God. I didn’t have much to say so I told God I would walk and listen for His still small voice. I can do a lot of talking and it was difficult to be silent. My mind was wandering instead of listening. But I was reminded that God is sufficient. He is enough for me and all that I need.
At one point I asked, “God, do you have a word for me, a word of Scripture?” Seconds later a young woman walking towards me noticed the shirt I was wearing and said, “I did that VBS! I was the music person!” Then she does a little punch in the air and says, “Game On” along with a little jump in the air. As we passed each other I just thanked God that He spoke to me through that young lady.
Continuing to walk on I pondered my request and how God answered it. Then I thought, I asked for a Scripture. Remembering after I got home that there is a verse on the back of the shirt, I looked it up . . .

seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.
2 Peter 1:3 NASB

In the quietness of my walk focusing on God, He not only reminded me that He is sufficient but when I asked Him for a verse He gave me one to affirm my thoughts. My God is sufficient and all I need.

Sunday morning. I’m cruising through Facebook waiting for my coffee to brew. Right in the middle of cruising I close my eyes and whisper a prayer, “God, I am so tired this morning and if I close my eyes for my daily prayer I will fall asleep. Is that okay? I open my eyes and this I see:

Saturdays evening prayer: “Even before there is a word on my tongue, Behold, O Lord, You know it all. You have enclosed me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is too high, I cannot attain to it. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?
Psalms 139:4-‬7 NASB
(Are you thankfully reacting to the Hand of God being on you? Do you know that you can never totally understand the Lord? Are you OK with the knowledge that you cannot hide from an all knowing God?)
Thank you Pastor friend Roger Anderson

How can I possibly leave for church this morning (Sunday) without preparing my heart for worship? Prayer time ensued.

🌹 What an amazing God!!

Continually Seeking Him,

Sharon
