From The Heart of Abba Today
Peace and quietness,
Peace and quietness
Are the natural state,
When your heart is at rest.
Your heart is at rest,
Whenever you are,
Trusting, leaning and relying on Me.
You are able to receive from Me
Whenever you make a conscious effort
To be intentional in coming to Me.
Come to Me, Beloved.
Come when you feel weak,
Or out of control,
The invitation to come and
Simply “be” with Me,
Is an invitation that is also,
In a sense a command.
You are invited and encouraged,
To come and spend a daily time,
Allowing your heart to
Listen to/for My heart.
My heart’s desire is
To pour into your heart,
All that you will need,
For that moment as well as
Each moment of every day.
This coming is not just a once a day invitation,
It is for every moment of every day,
For the rest of your life.
Whenever you begin to feel unrest,
Pause right where you are and call My Name.
In the instant of calling,
You will know,
That I am right there with you.
Then you heart will know it’s resting place,
Which is to be gently held safe and secure,
In My loving care for you.
Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 2 Peter 1:2-3
