refusing to be hurried

Blessed are the single-hearted, 
for they shall enjoy much peace. 
If you refuse to be hurried and pressed, 
if you stay your soul on God, 
nothing can keep you from that clearness of spirit 
which is life and peace. 
In that stillness you will know what His will is.
Amy Carmichael

This photo with the accompanying verse from Amy Carmichael impacted my spirit, and made me reflect in reverence on all that I encounter this day.

Blessed are the single-hearted. Wow, I love that. I've had the beatitudes on my mind this week--I think we should add that one.

Oh yes, 'Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blessed!'

Love your garden "pillar of stones' as Genesis says, to mark the place where the Lord spoke to His people.

focus, focus, focus . . . that is what I think of as being single-hearted. Transfixed on Jesus. Hope you have a wonderful Sabbath.

I love this one even more than usual. Probably b/c I'm such a "rocky" person, but loved the mix of Word and word and photo.

Bless you.
