Breathe On Me Breath of God / Edwin Hatch and Robert Jackson:
Breathe on me Breath of God, fill me with life anew, that I may love what Thou dost love and do what Thou wouldst do.

As we await Monday’s biopsy together, I want to focus on God’s Presence in the midst of a challenging time. I found my devotional in Jesus Calling by Sarah Young for August 10 very encouraging and soothing. It is written as if Jesus is talking to me directly.

Relax in My healing, holy Presence. Allow Me to transform you through this time alone with Me. As your thoughts center more and more on Me, trust displaces fear and worry.
Your mind is somewhat like a seesaw. As your trust in Me goes up, fear and worry automatically go down. Time spent with Me not only increases your trust; it also helps you discern what is important and what is not.

My sister, who is the one waiting on a breast biopsy, commented she wanted to “walk on water.” I assured her she was already out of the boat and that the key was to keep her gaze on the eyes of her Savior. He will continually keep an eye contact of love and encouragement to the one who seeks to meet His constant gaze of light and love!

Jesus Calling for August 10 Continued:

Energy and time are precious, limited entities. Therefore you need to use them wisely, focusing on what is truly important. As you walk close to Me, saturating your mind with scripture, I will show you how to spend your time and energy. My Word is a lamp to your feet; My Presence is a light for your path (Psalm 119:105)

Isaiah 43:1-3 I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you walk through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through fire, you will not be burned, the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord, your God.

Isaiah 43: 18 & 19
Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in a wasteland.

Deuteronomy 33:25
The bolts of your gates will be iron and bronze and your strength will equal your days.

I Corinthians 9:26 Therefore I do not run like a woman running aimlessly; I do not fight like a woman beating the air.

For God’s gifts and His call are Irrevocable.

Isaiah 49:23 Then you will know that I am the Lord; those who hope in Me will not be disappointed.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.

Romans 7: 24 & 25 Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise person who built their house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose and the winds beat against that house, yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation of the rock.

Psalm 95: 1-7 Come let us sing to the Lord, let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before Him with Thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song. For the Lord is a great God, the great King above all gods. In His hand and the depths of the earth and the mountains peaks belong to Him. The sea is His, for He made it and His hands formed the dry land. Come let us kneel before the lord our maker; for He is our God and we are the people of His pasture, the flock under His car
