We are in a state of constant uncertainty and change lately. I am so thankful
to have the Lord with me. These verses have really been with me lately:
" But thou O Lord art a shield for me; my glory and the lifter up of mine head" Psalm 3:3;
" I will both lay me down in peace and sleep ; for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety"
Psalm 4:8
"But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice; let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them; let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee" Psalm 5:11

These verses have really helped me and comforted me and showed me His leading! What are some of your favorites?

Wisdom: the principal thing

I think maybe I am beginning to finally learn.... God is concerned not with the same concerns that I have but that I am seeking Him and His wisdom!!! I have been reading in Proverbs about wisdom " my son, if thou wilt receive my words and hide my commandments with thee; so that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom and apply thine heart to understanding; yea if thou criest after knowledge and liftest up thy voice for understanding; if thou seekest her as silver and searchest for her as for hid treasures; THEN shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord and find the Knowledge of God" Proverbs 2:1-5
God has been teaching me to fully rely on Him and I am finally beginning to learn that as I start drawing closer to Him our desires are lining up. If I am asking for God's wisdom He will give me knowledge in difficult situations! He will show me the right path if I seek His way! So this is my new goal ; to keep wisdom before me and Seek God's plan and his wisdom before being concerned with the trivialities of life!
Be blessed friends!

It's the little things

As you know, I have been spending a lot of time thinking lately and I have come to realize that the little things in life are where God is really the most evident! The laughter of my children when they are getting along and playing, the quick phone call during the day just to let you know someone is thinking of you, a hug, even a smile... These are all things that sometimes bring the most comfort in difficult times and joy when things are good... I am noticing more and more that I can be content with very little as long as I have my family by my side and God's direction in my life. I am desperately seeking His will in these trying days but trying to see Him in the little things... Be blessed my friends!
