Posture Yourself

The heron.

(at least that's my best guess)

He stands there this morning.

The message.


I'm not really awake yet. I'm jogging around the pond, grateful that the geese are not blocking my path this morning - they are all in the lake.

And I'm painfully aware that I need reminders.

I use my phone to enter in anything I need reminding of. Before the phone, I had sticky notes all over the place - or a long list of "to-do's." Because if I don't write it down, it's most likely not going to happen.

So I shouldn't be surprised that I need a reminder. As if waking me early wasn't reminder enough. And this is how He chooses to remind me.

With a heron.

There is no arguing for me.




By starting the day right.

By posturing myself to hear from Him.

By positioning myself for the purpose of hearing His provision for the day.

My attitude.

My perspective.

Walk With Me


Walk with me.

You choose to walk with me,
leaning on me as much as you need.

And why do I feel badly about needing to lean so much . . .
because it doesn't bother you, my Lord, at all.

This perceived weakness of mine,
This needing to lean on You,
Needing to cling to you,
Allows Your power to rest on me.

In fact, You rather enjoy it, taking delight in my leaning on You. As my husband takes delight in our daughter leaning on him.

Be blessed in the name of Jesus the Lord who is always with you.
Your strength is knowing God and shining His light.

Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ may rest upon me.2 Corinthians 12:9b

Author of the world, walk with me
Ruler of the earth, walk with me
Calmer of the storm, walk with me
Healer of my heart, walk with me

How I need You
How I need You, oh Jesus
Walk with me
How I love You
How I love You, Oh Jesus
Walk with me

Light for every step, walk with me
Healer of my heart, walk with me
Giver of each …
