The Wheels…

WHEEL-WITHIN-WHEEL

Good morning, Family:

Sending love to all. I pray that you all are still healthy and well. This morning, as I was waking up, the Holy Spirit placed the  devotional message, in my heart.

I heard a certain gospel song in my head and then the Spirit of the Lord showed me the image of a wheel spinning inside of another wheel. It was an image that I had read about in book of Ezekiel, but a little different.

This morning, I only saw the wheels spinning. Then I heard the song, “The Center of My Joy,” by Richard Smallwood. I stared at the wheels for a long time and the  verses of the song just vibrated through me.

 Center of My Joy

By: Richard Smallwood

Jesus, you’re the center of my joy
All that’s good and perfect comes from you
You’re the heart of my contentment, hope for all I do
Jesus, you’re the center of my joy
When I’ve lost my direction, you’re the compass for my way
You’re the fire and light when nights are long and cold
In sadness, you are the laughter, that shatters all my fears
When I’m all alone, your hand is there to hold, ohh
Jesus, you’re the center of my joy
All that’s good and perfect comes from you
You’re the heart of my contentment, hope for all I do
Jesus, you’re the center of my joy
You are why I find pleasure in the simple things in life
You’re the music in the meadows and the streams
The voices of the children, my family, and my home
You’re the source and finish of my highest dreams, woah
Jesus, you’re the center of my joy
All that’s good and perfect comes from you (all that’s good and perfect)
You’re the heart of my contentment, hope for all I do

Ezekiel 1:16 

New International Version (NIV)

16 This was the appearance and structure of the wheels: They sparkled like topaz, and all four looked alike. Each appeared to be made like a wheel intersecting a wheel.

Father, God, bring us back to center. Reposition our lives in a way that brings our worship of you into the center of our lives. Forgive us for making everything else more important than You. We humbly bow, in submission and humbleness, to your authority and your will. You have our undivided attention. May we open our hearts and minds to You.

Listening intently,

Rev. Marcia Davis
