Kneeling on Tipedtoed Knees
Praise, thanksgiving, and scripture float as voices are filled with joy or weep for those lost, ill, or hurting. Our prayers have winged across continents to pray for the persecuted church and covered those needing healing, help, or salvation.
I visualize our group huddled together on knees before God’s throne, bringing our spirits before our Abba, Father.
I feel so small. I’m a tiny girl, kneeling on tiptoed knees wanting, needing my Father’s guidance, anticipating His presence.
How I desire every moment to live with open ears and heart. To unclench my hands to receive all He longs to give, and my feet ready to venture wherever He leads.
And God meets us. His arms always open, His ears attentive to His children’s cry.
These precious moments…The God times. The absolute wonder and amazement of being able to come in His presence aren’t limited to Saturday mornings or only for the elite. These moments are open for all who seek. God promises… I love those who love Me, and those who seek Me find Me. You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart. (Proverbs 8:17, Jeremiah 29:13 NIV).
O that I would remember and my soul would stay knelt in God’s presence, tiptoed in anticipation of His wonder.
Want to join me?
Want to join Him?
“I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me” (Proverbs 8:17 NIV).

Lisa, thank you for being a guest writer at the Nest. Your words always fill me with encouragement. To spend time with the Lord can only set us on higher ground. To surrender all to Him can only bring us to soar above all that tries to hold us down. Time spent with Him is the sweetest time of all. Thank you for reminding us just how precious our time with Him truly is. Many times I find myself doing all the talking. I think that's okay at times. When my heart is full I know Jesus wants to hear all that burdens me, but more than anything I need to learn to quiet myself so that I can hear all my Savior has to share with me. Blessings to you sweet friend.
