We started last week with reading Psalm 62:5-8. As I read the verses, I took note of two words:

  • “My soul, wait in silence for God only.” (verse 5, NASB)
  • “He only is my rock and my salvation.” (verse 6, NASB)

God only.

Two simple words that have pierced my heart as of late.

Am I (we) resting in God only? Or have I added other things into the mix, and found them to be lacking?

God only. Only God can and will always be our rock, our salvation, our light, our refuge. It is God only whom we can trust to be faithful to us for all of our days.

“Alone, and without other help, God is the foundation and completion of my safety … I am secure, because He is faithful.”

(Charles Spurgeon, as quoted in Becoming A Woman Who Walks With God, Cynthia Heald, page 62)


“But now, Lord, You are our Father; We are the clay, and You our potter, And all of us are the work of Your hand.” (Isaiah 64:8, NASB)

Here we find Isaiah acknowledging God as His Father before anything else. In calling Him “Father”, He is recognizing His sovereignty, and His authority, over sis life.

He has the right, the authority, to make us into whatever He knows is best. He is the One shaping us, molding us, and using us for purposes we cannot understand nor see at times.

“… hand over the reins of government to Him.”

(Hannah Whitall Smith, as quoted in Becoming A Woman Who Walks With God, Cynthia Heald, page 66)

Easier said than done at times.

The book asks: At what times do I find it most difficult to place myself without reservation in the Potter’s hands?

My answer? Often its when it isn’t what I wanted or desired or thought how it would go.

May the Lord help me (us) to give Him those reins of government over our lives for He truly will always do what is best for us.


 “Now beside the cross of Jesus stood His mother, His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.” (John 19:25, NASB)

Three women stood by the Cross of Jesus.

Three women stood by Jesus at a time when women were often looked down upon to begin with. I was moved by their action.

“It is important to stand up for and stand by our friends.”

(Becoming a Woman Who Walk with God, Cynthia Heald, page 73)

Would I have the courage to stand up for Jesus no matter what it might mean for me? I sure hope so.

This reading challenged me in all the right way.

The book asks: Where has God placed me to take a stand for Jesus?

May we share, encourage one another and hopefully build the courage to stand faithfully until He calls us home!


God only.
We are the clay, He is the Potter.
Stand up and stand by.
Until He calls us home.
