DEMONSTRATE YOUR TRUST IN ME by sitting quietly in My Presence. Put aside all that is waiting to be done, and refuse to worry about anything. This sacred time together strengthens you and prepares you to face whatever the day will bring. By waiting with Me before you begin the day’s activities, you proclaim the reality of My living Presence. This act of faith—waiting before working—is noted in the spirit world, where your demonstration of trust weakens principalities and powers of darkness. (Jesus Calling by Sarah Young)
The predawn morning was absolutely beautiful! As I walked out to the bench for my quiet time in His presence, I couldn't help but think about the many strolls I took to this bench in the past several months. Although the path was the same, the feet that walked the path had a different step. I walked to the bench without the need to stop and rest. I walked to the bench without pain. I walked to the bench without someone holding on to me so I wouldn't fall. I walked to the bench this morning, GRATEFUL!!!
