Psalm 121; Mark 9 & 10

Leaving for Los Angeles this afternoon, to see my daughter. Excited and at the same time hating to leave the familiar, the love that surrounds me here. Sat with a bunch of women this morning and talked about what Christ is to us. I of course get all passionate and probly as per usual steam roll a particular woman whom I love but don’t show in the ways she receives.
I wonder how many times that happens?
I get all wrapped up in me and forget them? More times than I care to admit and yet IF I don’t continue to look at the way I LOVE I am not listening to Him. Funny (not really) I spend so much of my time worrying about being loved and then this slight inclination to His way and I more than ever before worry about loving…..
Mark 10: 21 Jesus looked him hard in the eye—and loved him! He said, "There's one thing left: Go sell whatever you own and give it to the poor. All your wealth will then be heavenly wealth. And come follow me."
22The man's face clouded over. This was the last thing he expected to hear, and he walked off with a heavy heart. He was holding on tight to a lot of things, and not about to let go.
He knows our hearts, what that last thing is we expect to hear. He loves us and calls us to Himself.

This song, I woke up to it this morning, it's on my mind.....go and have a listen and here are the lyrics:
Have you ever heard a love song, That set your spirit free?
Have you ever watched a sunrise, And felt you could not breathe?
What if it's Him? What if it's God speaking?
Have you ever cried a tear that You could not explain?
Have you ever met a stranger Who already knew your name?
What if it's Him? What if it's God speaking?
Who knows how He'll get ahold of us? Get our attention to prove He is enough.
He'll do, and He'll use whatever He wants to.
To tell us, I Love You.
Have you ever lost a loved one Who you thought should still be here?
Do you know what it feels like to be tangled up in fear?
What if He's somehow involved? What if He's speaking through it all?
Who knows how He'll get ahold of us? Get our attention to prove he is enough.
He'll do and He'll use whatever He wants to To tell us, I love you.
His ways are higher yeah His ways are better and though sometimes strange.... What could be stranger than God in a manger?
ooh yeah yeah yeahhh Who knows how He'll get ahold of us?
Get our attention to prove He is enough. Who knows how He'll get ahold of you?
Get your attention to prove he is enough. He'll do and He'll use whatever He wants to,
To tell us I love you God is speaking, I love you ohhh yeahh

A stirring song.

To dare that a sunset is not only art, but an indirect communication.

The sunset is provided to all, but where does one find eyes to recognize such a sight?
