Spiritual Sundays


As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.
Joshua 1:5
When sometimes I feel God isn't with me I remind myself he is never gone. Like the fifth sunny day in a row you start to 'not notice' the sunshine. Like your loyal dog you don't even hear him at your feet. However, when the rain comes you feel the absence of the sun and when you lose your loyal dog you miss the sound of his breath beside your feet.

Often when we think we are missing God we have put stuff between his presence and ourselves. Are you standing with your back to the Son? I am often guilty of being so caught up in my day to day that I don't pray or seek out God enough. I sometimes question whether He is there, only b/c I know if I were the parent and my child had turned her back on me as much I, in my humanness, wouldn't be so loyal.

Try today to think whether you take time to "be still and know....that HE is God"....just Be still and see what things are fogging up the windows to your soul.

Excellent thoughts in this post. So true you many times don't even notice something that when it's gone you realize it's gone. Thank you for sharing this on Spiritual Sundays. I hope you are having a good weekend.

Wonderful thoughts today. Sometimes when I wonder where God is in my life it's time for me to stop and remember He is always there, He never leaves me.

Have a blessed Sonday!

You write such good thoughts I just had to tell you how much I appreciate them. However, I had a hard time trying to find this place to put my comment. I know that a lot of people read and appreciate what you write but don't leave a comment. Hopefully in the future there will be a way for them to leave their comment at the bottom of your Spiritual Sundays post. Again, I feel uplifted by what you write. It is brief, to the point and needed.

Every day I try to feel God next to me. I try to be aware of when he is working in my life. But I must me still.Thank-you so much for sharing your thoughts.

Thanks so much for this post. What a wonderful question. Do I stop and be still and know He is God no not nearly enough.

Blessings and thanks for such a thought provoking post. I love what you wrote in response and as a question to reflect on. Excellent comparisons. But I could not go by one day without His Presence be it in stillness or with a loud bang to get my attention, sometimes I'm pretty dense or stubborn. But I pray there is no stuff between our conversation! Thanks for sharing this verse and post! Enjoy your week!

WOW..free chairs, make that 2..that was a great find. So nice that your new neighbors invited you to a party. Sounds like you will have good neighbors.
Your Sunday post is telling me something, since this is twice I have heard the same verses this week...guess I need to listen and BE STILL.
Also like the other treasures. You have been busy. Happy Monday :)
Warmly,
