Sunday Stillness- Psalm 36:9

Sunday Stillness- Psalm 36:9


As we get nearer to Christmas I am getting excited. Excited to see my family. We have been wintering here in Arizona since October and I need those hugs from my children and grandchildren. That has what has been on my mind for the past week. The urge is strong. I can’t seem to stop it.

I believe that is what God feels like for His children. That urge is very strong. Our Creator is compelled to reach us. So compelled that He sent His Only Son to come to earth, to reveal Himself in the flesh for us. The Incarnation. Wow. I know somewhat of how He feels.

Revealing Himself took effort, planning and pain. But His love is that much. He cares for us that much.

God knew the result of His efforts. He knew what pain would be endured but He did it anyway. God loves us that much.

We only know something of this love. Our love for our family and friends, our human love, is only that – human love. God’s love is divine. Divine Love – is all encompassing. God goes to battle over us. God wants us.

Do you see that? Do you see how much God loves you?


God’s love is so strong, He was compelled to come to earth to show Himself to us.

God’s love is so strong, He sent Jesus as a Babe to live among us; to die for us; to bring us home.

Today is Sunday Stillness.

Today you can reach for the “Fountain of life” that has been given to us through Jesus. Will you reach out today? Will you question Jesus? Will you ask Him to show Himself to you? That’s all it takes.

Please take time to read the wonderful blogs below. If you find a post that does not agree with the Statement of Faith, I would ask that you email me at Janis. Sometimes I can’t get to each of the posts below.




Do you have a Scripture that spoke to you this week? Please link below. If you post to Twitter use #sundaystillness and @authorjaniscox.

Feel free to pin the picture. Follow me at AuthorJanisCox on Pinterest.

I would love it if you would subscribe to my blog. See the sidebar to enter your email address. And Subscribe to my new Newsletter. That would be great.

Read the Sunday Stillness rules if you are new here.

I would appreciate if you would link only about God’s Word. If you have a linky party that’s okay if it is about the same thing. Please no sales or prizes. I want this to be friendly but I must ask you to abide by the rules. Others want to read God’s Word – and that is what I would like the links to be about. I must take down the links that don’t follow the rules. Thanks so much.


Please check out all the places I link to during the week. Thanks to everyone who has joined Sunday Stillness. I do try to get to your posts every week but I admit sometimes I don’t have the time.

  1. You wrote this with such insight and conviction, Janis. I love it, especially these words:

    “Revealing Himself took effort, planning and pain. But His love is that much. He cares for us that much.”


    God bless you and your family this Christmas!

  2. Janis – Yes, love compels us to be with the One we love. May we long to spend time with Him each day with the same urge. Beautiful thoughts this morning!
    Have a blessed Sunday,

I love to connect with you.
