Savor

Savor His Presence! It is intoxicating! And, the things of earth seem to grow strangely dim in His Light. Savor! Savor! Savor! (to delight in, enjoy or appreciate completely, esp. By dwelling on it)

  1. Listened to the song on youtube just now…..
    “Turn your eyes upon Jesus
    look full in His wonderful face,
    and the things of earth will grow
    strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.”

    1. Tammy, I see where you caught the glimmers of light in blog of song. You didn’t just read, you researched, listen, and posted your glimmer. Alan Jackson in song added his glimmer.

      “O soul are you weary and troubled?
      No light in the darkness you see?
      There’s light for a look at the Saviour,
      And life more abundant and free:

      [Chorus:]
      Turn you eyes upon Jesus,
      Look full in His wonderful face;
      And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
      In the light of His glory and grace.

      Through death into life everlasting
      He passed, and we follow Him there;
      Over us sin no more hath dominion
      For more than conqu’rors we are!

      [Chorus]

      His word shall not fail you He promised;
      Believe Him and all will be well.
      Then go to a world that is dying,
      His perfect salvation to tell!”

      The last two lines when obeyed brings glimmers to a forever glow. I am working diligently to recognize God’s smiles. Especially when I receive a smile, a nod, a wink, from little connectors of light that says, I, God, approve. Having you Tammy, catch the glimmer of song, give it a tune, gave wind to the sparkle from blog, Yes, Savor. I hope this light continues to give light to my path that leads me more often to the last two lines of above song. Did you notice we started with our will/eyes and we have worked thru the heart area of great emotions to the connecting of hip joint and got those feet just a moving! WOW, how sweet it is!

  2. The picture is so lovely and seems so perfect for looking at and thinking on.
    Then humming the song Tammy shared above brings more focus to ‘ Savor His Presence!’

  3. Have you ever sit for a moment with a mind packed so full if someone said Boo you would run and put the garbage mind on the dining table? I find myself there off and on. And this was one of those days. Each time I do it seems The Holy Spirit is right there holding a camera for a selfie. Here’s my selfie. “If we take only a cup of coffee, what happens? We find other things to do. We see the roses need pruning or the lawn needs mowing or the trash needs to be picked up. So we rush for our pruning shears, lawn mower, or trash can. The moment and the morning are lost.

    Is it possible to do just one thing at a time? Try it for yourself. Take that cup of coffee and sit in a lawn chair. Taste the coffee — really taste it. When was the last time you really tasted something for itself? Now feel the lawn chair beneath you, the breeze on your face, the sun on your back. Hear the birds in the trees, the traffic on the road, and the children’s voices from the next yard. Savor the moment completely. Experience the joy of the now.”– Patricia Wilson. “When You Come Unglued . . . Stick Close to God”

    Did you just read Patricia’s words? “Savor the moment completely”. Did you just read this blog I posted just yesterday when I was in a savor moment? “I’m Ungluded today? Frankly, I don’t like selfies.

  4. My unglued of yesterday brought me here. “My Utmost For His Highest
    “Prayer is the way that the life of God in us is nourished. We may look upon prayer simply as a means of getting things for ourselves, but the biblical purpose of prayer is that we may get to know God himself. To say that ‘prayer changes things’ is not as close to the truth as saying, ‘Prayer changes me and then I change things.’ Prayer is not a matter of changing things externally, but one of working miracles in a person’s inner nature.” –Oswald Chambers, from My Utmost for His Highest

  5. ‘Prayer changes me and then I change things.’

    Hmm… this looks like a soil test pH test to check up on conditions. If I say ‘I am praying’ but my soil test reveals ‘way out of range’ for any fruit to be produced, then no fruit develops. And if I am understanding what I read from Oswald Chambers, then no fruit, ‘no biblical prayer’ occurring.

    1. I read today in my devotional by Mark Virkler that when I pray with an idol in my heart the prayer is very ineffective if at all. The idol may be the thing I am praying for. But if I exalt that”thing…request” upper most in my thoughts/conscience..then that is praying with an idol in my heart. Jesus must be in the center of my coming before Him in prayer. When the ”thing” tries to get the upper hand, cast down that imagination and in holy imagination see Jesus, smiling at me as I make petition before Him Picture….Only Christ.

  6. “Savor His Presence. It is intoxicating.”
    This is proven by the Scripture,
    ” His Name is as ointment poured forth.”
    “But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the FRAGRANCE of the knowledge of Him everywhere’._2Cor.2:14

    “Thine oils have a goodly FRAGRANCE; Thy Name is as oil poured forth; Therefore do the virgins love thee”.__Song 1:3

    Amen & Amen.
