“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”
― John Lubbock
In our stillness, we acknowledge God’s greatness and we are at peace in our life. Stillness saturates us in the presence of God.
Nothing in or out of this world measures up to the simple pleasure of experiencing the presence of God.
They slipped briskly into an intimacy from which they never recovered.
-F. Scott Fitzgerald
Worship changes the worshipper
Into the image of the One worshipped.
We are made in the image of God;
We carry within us the desire for our true life of intimacy and adventure. To say we want less than that, is a lie.
Our lack of intimacy with God is often due to our refusal to unplug and shut off communication from all others so we can be alone with Him.
Royalty is my identity;
Servanthood is my assignment.
Intimacy with God is my life source.
A mouth that has never tasted the sweetness of inner silence is a restless spirit which disturbs the silence of others.
The renewed mind is the canvas on which the Spirit of God can paint.
Worship is first and foremost for His benefit, not ours, though it is marvelous to discover that in giving Him pleasure, we ourselves enter into what can become our richest and most wholesome experience in life.
