His Presence Like the Sun upon My Face

Cocooned in Jesus’ arms of love anytime is the most beautiful place to be. I find myself in a place of uncertainty right now, intensifying my desire to feel His presence like the sun upon my face.

I love this little book of promises, and those of you who read my blog already know I love sunflowers. Sunflowers raise their heads and draw near to the heavens–to God. Hoping in God, a chapter from this book, God’s Promises and & Answers for Women, includes a section entitled How to Draw Near to God.

This verse popped off the page.

My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him. ~Psalm 62:5 (NKJV)

The instructions to my soul touched a tender spot in my heart. I searched for the verse in other translations, expanding the beauty of the message and the depth of God’s promises. Here it is in the New Living Translation.

Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him. ~Psalm 62:5 (NLT)

In another period of uncertainty and waiting, a friend felt God lead her to share this verse with me.

The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still. ~Exodus 14:14 (NIV)

The promise from Psalms pulled me snuggly back to the one from Exodus reminding me again (and again) to be still, and expect Him to act on my behalf.

Are you in a season of waiting? If so, I pray these verses minister to you. And whatever season you are in, the Bible is full of promises from God to our thirsty hearts, waiting to be filled. You’ll find them neatly organized by theme in this little book.

A little added point of interest — in the photo of the book you get to see a snippet of my new kitchen redo.
