“Well I remember readin' You're the God who never sleeps
And while I've been dreamin' You've been singing over me, yeah
Singin' about my freedom, wakin' me up to hear Your song, and now I can't dance hard enough
'Cause yesterday is gone, gone, gone!
I'M SMELLIN' COFFEE
BIRDS ARE SINGIN' JUST OUTSIDE
HERE COMES YOUR MERCY STREAMIN' IN WITH THE MORNING LIGHT
MY HEART IS RACING WAKING UP TO YOUR SMILE
IT'S A GOOD MORNING, YEAH
IT'S A GOOD MORNING”
***from Chris Rice’s song “Smellin’ Coffee”
Lately I have felt like God was far, far away. I tried to feel His presence….and I couldn’t. Last night I told Him so…again. I asked Him if I had walked away from Him….or had He stepped back from me??? Well, this morning He has made it very clear that He is right here. Yes…this morning I feel like I am walking on holy ground….and I am glad! He is speaking and I am praying that my heart hears. It’s a good morning!!!
“[Live] as children of obedience [to God]; do not conform yourselves to the evil desires [that governed you] in your former ignorance [when you did not know the requirements of the Gospel]. But as the One Who called you is holy, you yourselves also be holy in all your conduct and manner of living. For it is written, You shall be holy, for I am holy. [Lev.11:44, 45.]” 1 Peter 1:14-16 (Amplified)
May you all be truly blessed today!
