Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Walking the High Wire
The High Wire
The circus was in town, and my dad took us three kids to see
all the exciting action.The clowns were
hilarious and the trained animals so tremendous; but it was the trapeze artists
and the tight rope walkers with their breathtaking and daring feats that caused
my sister and me to want to be like them.
At times in life, we seem to be walking a tight rope with a
thick dark mist hiding the net below and we wonder if there really is a safety
net, because we can't see it.
I am amazed that the disciples of Jesus did not believe He
had risen from the dead until He actually visibly appeared to them.“Touch and handle me,” He told them.They still wondered - - their doubt was
larger than their belief.
Jesus even ate bread and fish before them.Finally they believed and knew it was true,
He was alive and risen from the dead..
This Jesus was real and true enough to cause them to preach
even after they received beatings and warnings of death.This revelation was true enough to even die
for; as many of them did.
Even today many are willing to Live or if needs be to die for their faith because;
Jesus has REVEALED himself to them.
When a person (or even a child) invites Jesus to live in
their heart - - something happens to burst that bubble of doubt.
The word of God mixed with the Holy Spirit
causes an experience that cleanses and purifies the old nature and creates a
brand new person.
Oh one day we shall see Jesus with our new eyes.But for now, like Paul we pray, open my eyes
of understanding that I might fully KNOW YOU my God and my Savior.
