Wandering The Path

Spiritual Reflections from Debi Moses

Holy Week ~ Monday

150 150 Debi Moses

It was Palm Sunday. The laughing children had walked down the aisle at Lovers Lane United Methodist Church with their palm branches waving and once again I started crying. Every Holy Weekyear it’s the same thing  until that glorious Easter morning. Our Savior’s last week on earth is one that stirs my soul, breaks my heart, and strengthens my faith. Wander with me this week and share your experiences. It’s a joy to be on the path with you!

“Abide in me as I abide in you.”  John 15:4

 

God is far greater than anything we can imagine.  Yet, through Jesus, we can know the loving nature of our Creator.  Scripture tells us that God is love, and we are His delight.  God comes to us and resides in our very being.  Do you feel a stirring in your soul?

Pray with me:

Compassionate One,

Why did You do it? The lashes seared into Your back, making You cry out in pain, and still You took them for us. Your love for us grew with each unbearable strike of the whip. To feel Your love grow inside of us is  a glorious wonder.  As we sense Your Holy warmth within us, we are made whole.

Wandering Through the Psalms 81:13

“If my people would only listen to me,  if Israel would only follow my ways…” Psalm 81:13

How many times have I said, “If they would only listen to me their life would be a lot less complicated,” and shake my head in disbelief. Poor God, I bet His head could come loose from all the head shakingfootprint He must do because I don’t  listen to this Holy of Holy. This Lent I am listening and following Him.  It’s amazing how things work out when you listen.

With ears wide open…

Ok, I read Your teachings.  I listen to my minister tell be about your teachings, now I guess it’s time for me to listen to You myself.

I’m turning off my IPod and letting You in….

 

Wandering Through the Psalms 49:1, 3

footprint“Hear this, all you peoples; listen, all who live in this world. My mouth will speak words of wisdom; the meditation of my heart will give you understanding.” Psalm 49:1, 3

Opening my heart during meditation is the best way for me to hear God’s wisdom. As I read His words,  listen with my soul, and sit in the silence, His wisdom finds it’s way  into my heart and I  become full of  His grace and glory.

With an open heart for You….

 

Wandering Through the Psalms 85:8

“I will listen to what God the Lord will say; He promises peace to His people…” Psalm 85:8

I will listen to the Lord, but how do I know it’s Him? Oh yeah, He promises peace to me and maybe just maybe, I will feel Him as I sit in His presence and listen.  It’s something worth trying isn’t it?footprint

Listening, sitting, and waiting
