Matching rhythm

We all have a rhythm we’re used to—
a tempo that goes beyond the kind of music we listen to. 
God gave each of us an internal rhythm. 
Put your hand over your heart, 
a hand over your wrist 
or two fingers on the side of your neck, 
and you’ll discover you have your own internal click—
a personal metronome 
that God thoughtfully put inside each of us.

Breaking Old Rhythms: Answering the Call of a Creative God


looking for that still point
where my rhythm 
aligns with His heartbeat

in the quiet with Sandy


resting in Him with Cheryl

Well, Karin, you'd got me "hmmm?-ing" now as I pour your sharing, thinking through my mind. That is a "good thing"... not taking things just for granted.

Me too, Karin. Me too! (and I love the thought of the heartbeat being a personal metronome. Perfect!

And that word, "rhythm?" It's still on the scrabble holder on the army footlocker turned coffee table in our living room. I love how God has connected us. :)

I am really, really loving this--

a personal metronome--wow!

and your last line--should certainly be our heart's desire! thank you

I watched an amazing video this week of a new video camera that picks up the slightest subtleties in motion. It filmed a baby and you could the pulsating blood just under the skin. It was beautiful -- almost melodic.
