O my God
O my soul
Does a day go by that a zinger of doubt does not blind side me in the most unexpected of moments, thus I have to let myself fall back into the waiting arms of God, and regardless of when, how, or why I stubbed my faith, His grace and assurance are a rock solid unmovable foundation that keep me anchored, and give me peace and security regardless of the storms my simply being alive manages to stir up.
“Hallelujah! what a Savior!
Hallelujah! what a Friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
He is with me to the end.”
Here I am Jesus!
Here I am not.
There is no in between, no almost, kinda sorta, or later.
I find that the only thing more terrifying than throwing my arms open wide and shouting to the heavens, “Here I am, use me, I’m Yours,” is to not.
So there is really no sane reason to be silent, yes?
I just was not expecting the answer to be wait.
So many things to be thankful for this morning!
Let me see, perhaps the beginning, I woke up this morning thinking goodness gracious it is cold (it’s in the forties in So Cal and to us that is cold) however my nice toasty puffy comforter has been sleeping alongside me for weeks just waiting for this moment, and voila, this morning it arrived!
My quiet time with the Lord was as satisfying as it gets, many revelations and questions answered, and a holy hug of foswab……sigh😌
Breakfast in bed of lavishly buttered toast 😋 and piping hot fresh ground coffee with dollops of cream. I usually cook myself a breakfast with well balanced macros, so I will be playing catch up all day because of this, but goodness gracious was it worth it to indulge.
It is Saturday and I have the whole day to go out and putter in the yard doing a little of this and a little of that, and with the cooler weather and cloudy skies, I will not be banished to the indoors by the heat and sun just as I get myself lost in the splendor of God’s creation.
