In My Savior’s Arms by Jill Roleke
I want to crawl into my savior’s lap
Lay my head upon His chest.
I want to listen to HIs heartbeat
As I settle down and rest.
I want to feel His arms around me
Feel His breath upon my face.
I want to close my eyes and savor
His love and His embrace.
I want to have His peace surround me
And wrap myself in love.
I want to dwell right there forever
With the one who reigns above.
God gave Jill this beautiful poem a few short days before she found out her brother had passed away. It is a beautiful testimony and reminder that God knows exactly what we need before we even need it.
These words not only help to bring healing to Jill’s heart at the loss of her brother, but they should encourage you as well. During this time of fasting prayer – take time to crawl up in your Savior’s arms, listen to His heartbeat, experience His peace and allow Him to embrace you.

Even though Proverbs 3:5 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding,” has always been one of my favorite verses, I have recently come to the conclusion that I really have not been applying it to my life.

Why is it that we seem to think the Christian life is supposed to be a bed of roses? Even if it was, let me remind you that roses have thorns and you might get pricked. In John 16:33, Jesus tells us that in this world we will have troubles but to take heart because He has overcome the world.

After all the years I have been a Christian one would think that I wouldn’t be surprised to realize again just how much God really does love me. It is when He does something for me that I know I do not deserve and that I certainly did not earn that the words of Ephesians 3:18 come to mind.

Why is it that we think we can hide from God? If you have ever read Psalm 139, you must know hiding from God is impossible. That chapter in the Bible happens to be one of my favorite and yet there are times that I think I can keep Him at arm’s length.

Hope is my middle name. I’m not just saying that, it truly is. I love that it is because it reminds me of so much. There are many scriptures in the Bible pertaining to hope. The one that sticks out most to me is Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the convictions of things not seen.”
What is it that we hope for? More importantly, how do we have faith to believe that what we hope for will happen? I found the answer to the second question in Hebrews 6. This chapter assures me that God keeps His promises. He cannot lie.
