Scriptures of Encouragement ~ Kissed By Grace

Blades of emerald grass glistened in the morning dew, kissed by grace, bathed in light. Stalks of chicory bowed and bobbed in the gentle breeze--their blue caps nodding to the One True God. His Presence moved over the meadow. I heard His voice in the song of the meadowlark. His whispers breathed His goodness over all of creation.

My spirit stirred at the recognition of His Presence. My countenance glistened, kissed by grace, bathed in light.

"Walk with me, Lord. Speak Your peace over my whirlwind. Cleanse me of worry and doubt, for You Lord are the Almighty. Your Name is Adonai - my Lord and Master. Your Name is Jehovah-tsidkenu - the Lord My Righteousness. Clothe me in Your Righteousness that my life might nod to the One True God."

 "And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden." ~ Genesis 3:8

"Lord God, forgive me for the sin of worry and discontentment that separates me from You, for I know when we're not in close fellowship. I sense it. I feel it. And my fear glares at me from the shadows. I want to walk closely with You - IN You and You in me. I don't ever want to feel like I need to hide from Your Presence because of my sin. You are gracious and good. Oh yes, Lord - this I know: I am no longer naked in my sin - I am covered by the Blood of Jesus. You have washed the filth away so that I may bow before Your throne and rest in Your Presence. Satan's torments are lies. NOTHING can separate me from Your love and Your pleasure."

My robe of righteousness glistens bright, kissed by grace, bathed in light.

Thank You my precious Savior. Thank You.
