Wrapped In His Heart

Guide me in Your truth and teach me,

For You are the God of my salvation;

For You (and only You) I wait (expectantly) all the day long.

Psalm 25:5 Amplified Bible

The Passion Bible translation has this footnote that knocked my socks off:

“The Hebrew word most commonly translated as “wait”, qavah, also means “to be tied together by twisting, to wrap tightly, to entwine”. This is a beautiful concept of waiting on God, not as something passive, but entwining our hearts with him and his purposes.”

Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance says “a primitive root; to bind together (perhaps by twisting)”.

So when I read this verse in the Passion Bible and it gave me the illustrative words,

“I have wrapped my heart into Yours”,

I was just swept away by the visual image these words presented.

Oh my, what better place to be but wrapped together into God’s heart?

THIS. This is what I desire. I want to be wrapped up in God’s heart. Especially when I am waiting for answers. To feel as He does. To love as He does. To know that I am in His heart, being held, as He prepares His answer. And to “know in my knower” how very much I am loved by Him.

How about you? Do these words resonate with you? Please do let me know!

And as always, I’m sending you love and big hugs!

First Love Yourself



Happy March! (This is from my “Wings & Dreams” calendar. You can still purchase one on sale in my shop.)

As Lucille Ball said, ” Love yourself first, and all the rest falls into line.”
It’s pretty difficult to accomplish what your heart desires if you don’t feel as if you are worth it. 
It’s tough to offer love to others if you feel really cruddy about yourself.
It’s almost impossible to be confident and positive if you really don’t like yourself.
What can you do today to nurture your soul? As women we nurture everyone else, but not ourselves.
Speak up for your right to take time to do something that nurtures YOU. (Convince yourself you are worthy of it. It will make you a better person, dissolve resentment, and empower you!)
Tell me below what you are going to do for yourself today. Me? I just got my heart rate up for 15 minutes. Go me! Now let’s see if I keep with it! Cheer me on.
