Psalms Chapter 91 1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I, too, have been there – in the secret place of the Most High God.

Like Moses, I have been on the mountain top, hesitant to come down and take up the mundane duties of earthly living.

Like Job, I was in the ash heap, but I came out saying, “I shut my mouth. I knew nothing before, but now I’ve seen Him! I know Him!”

Like David, I’ve washed the altar with my tears and joyed in sins forgiven.

Like Isaiah, I’ve seen Him high and lifted up. (Here I am, peeking over the earth’s rim, back here, behind the cherubim and seraphim. You are awesome, Lord. I love you.)

Like John I have leaned on His breast and dwelt there until His breath became my breath.

Like Mary, I have sat at His feet, and

like Martha, I have served Him in the kitchen.

I’ve been to places too wonderful to tell, beginning when, like the centurion, I stood at the cross and knew that, truly, there hung the Son of God.


I’m pretty sure I have used this on blog before, but tonight (Sunday) it is awesome in my soul – the magnificence of an Almighty God who cares for me, whom He loves even more than he loves the angels, cherubim, seraphim, or any other of his created wonders. That is also how much He loves you.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Good realization that he loves us more than “he loves the angels, cherubim, seraphim, or any other of his created wonders”.

    Our Father God is the perfect example of fatherly love. His mercy and love endure forever.

    Thank you. Beautiful memories. A-men!

  5. I love mentally putting myself in the place of the people in the Bible. (I especially identify with the two sisters, as my inner Mary and Martha collide. 😉 ) Each one had a different perspective, where we can gain insight.

      I understand what you mean by “colliding” because the one sister within can be hard on the other sister within. But we must not let Mary heap guilt on Martha; neither can we let Martha give Mary a guilt trip. Nothing surpasses time at Jesus’ feet, but he is not leaving us on earth to spend all our time at his feet. He gives us all earthly duties to perform.
