All I Need To Know

Last green
Something from today's God/journaling time . . .

I am sitting on the couch with my open Bible in my lap.  I have put myself in God's presence as much as I know how.  But I still feel flighty, distracted.  My mind wanders easily.  And I wonder what I'm supposed to be getting, what I'm doing wrong.  All I know is that the tree outside the window, with its leaves clapping in the breeze, is lovely.

I seem to hear God say, "That is all you need to know right now -- that the tree I made is lovely, that it is outside your window, and that you enjoy it."  It is said gently, with love.

Is this what life with God is?  Not earth-heaving messages about the day, about how to be useful to Him or productive, but instead a quiet whisper to enjoy the simplicity of this tree, and not even a tree that is particularly spectacular or stately?  

I wonder.

"God is supremely esteemed.  His center holds.
Zion brims over with all that is just and right.
God keeps your days stable and secure -- 
salvation, wisdom, and knowledge in surplus,
and best of all, Zion's treasure, Fear-of-God."
