I’m in the dash, so are you, if you’re reading this blog entry!  The dash is the space between our date of birth and our date of physical death. The total value of your life on earth is in that dash!  It’s what you do with that time you have been given by your Heavenly Father, between those two dates, the dash!

 

If you know Him and if you have given your life, your heart and your dedication to Him, He will be speaking to you!  The closer you draw to Him the more you two will talk!  Here is the key point, when He, through His Holy Spirit, speaks clearly to your heart and asks you to do something for Him, there is only one accetable answer, “Yes Father!”

 

I was reminded of that today in an email from a dear sweet brother.  He reminded me that though I’m getting older and often wonder if there is much more for me to do for Him, here, that my job is to listen for His voice and to still say, “Yes Father!”

 

Our Heavenly Father loves us so much that He gave His only Son for us, that through Him we might be forgiven from our sins and have eternal life!  His love for us is deeper and greater than we could ever understand!  He never asked us to be perfect, just to be His!  I’m not as fast as I once was, not as filled with energy, but my love for Him is deeper and stronger than when my body was young.

 

What I don’t have, He will provide, as I continue to say to Him, “Yes Father!”

 

I pray He is blessing you at this very moment!  I know He desires to!

I plead with you, if you have not met Jesus, please introduce yourself to Him, He already knows you better than you know yourself, He is patiently waiting to hear from you!

I was reading Jay Maisel’s, Color, Gesture and Light this morning and I committed to find a shot that spoke to me.  Getting out of the shower I saw it, simple and to the point, Sherelene’s robe hanging on the bathroom door.

 

It is a personal shot, it means a lot to me, it defines a small part of our lives together in our home.

 

Thanks Jay……

 

Blessings,
