"The One"

It's been quite a while since I have stopped by. Seems life gets filled with so much to do it's hard to find the time for sharing words......

And yet, I really haven't had the urge to share for a while. You see God has been teaching me how much more important it is to listen than to speak. Because honestly wisdom comes from hearing and pausing in moments that were meant for silence.

Words can roll right on out like the waves on to the beach, but there are only two things they can leave behind..... an eroded soul or an abundant living life with in the sand.

Lately I've  been choosing to be slow to speak. Sometimes I don't speak at all.......Because it's in those moments I hear. I choose to dance with the waves and find life with my feet.

Oh how Beautiful are the feet of those who bring the good news!

And that's what I found in the silence.....They are not important, the words that I choose to say, that I think people need to hear are no where near as important as the words of "The One" who gave me life to speak.

I don't know it all. I never want to come across like I do! what I do know is how to LOVE because of "The One" who loved me first.

God said to Moses:
I am the eternal God. So tell them, that the Lord, whose name is "I am", has sent you. This is my name forever and it is the name the people must use from now on. Exodus 3:14

Ps........I want to share with you that when I was writing this post I already had a verse in mind. And I knew my title would be "The One".....So when I went to look for the location of the verse this is what I found in the footnotes. Notice "The One" twice in the text of the foot notes.......Was it I that was speaking today? Or was I listening while God was doing the speaking?

I Love "The One" who Speaks Life................
May His words be an encouragement to you as you seek Him in silence and go about your day.


  1. 3.14,15 Lord: The Hebrew text has “Yahweh,” which is usually translated “Lord” in the CEV. Since it seems related to the word translated “I am,” it may mean “I am the one who is” or “I will be what I will be” or “I am the one who brings into being.”
