Good morning! How are you doing today? I hope the morning is treating you well and that you are eagerly awaiting the weekend. While I hear there are supposed to be showers, I remain hopeful:)
I am still quite shaken up after yesterday. The questions still flood my mind, as well as Zane's, as to where did the cars that were in our lanes go? Traffic was thick, and everyone was driving so fast, and we weren't hit! Oh wow! I know it was a miracle, and I know for a fact that God's hands were controlling every vehicle surrounding us. But still. I am in such awe. Amazement. Just...pure joy. So, if I know yesterday's events were controlled by God, that He had his loving hands stop vehicles from hitting us, and His arms were surrounding us like a shield, why does my mind try to explain it? I know the events are unexplainable.
Have you ever been asked to think about what you will ask God the moment you see Him? I have never really had a question pop up in my mind. But dear friends, I will ask Him if He can replay yesterday so I can see every move He made. I am overwhelmed with all He did for us yesterday. Completely overwhelmed.
In my post, 'Insecurity,' I mentioned that I was insecure of being used by God. Would He even want to use me. Am I worthy of being used for His kingdom? I have been praying daily that God would empty me of myself and use me as a vessel for His glory. To allow me each day to be aware of my need for Him. (I did not mean scare the life out of me by causing my husband and I to spin out on I-285...perhaps I should be more specific...naw, I want Him to do whatever is necessary...but goodness!) After yesterday, it was amazingly clear that now is not the time for God to call me to be home with Him. He is not finished with me yet. In the plans that He crafted for me while He was knitting me together in my mother's womb, He planned out something to take place in the future. A plan that I am excitedly waiting for! I feel unexplainably blessed that the God of the universe, Creator of all things, saved me and Zane yesterday for a plan yet to be revealed. I hope you are excited too!
I was skimming through Psalms this morning, looking for a wonderful passage to fill my heart with today...after all, we know King David was always jotting down God's grace as He saved David from his enemies. This is what I found. The song of my heart for this moment. And I plan on remembering 4-29 each year as the day God rescued me. (Yes, even after salvation, God keeps watch over us and saves us. All the time, God is GOOD!!!)
Excerpts from Psalms 138. "On the day I called, You answered me; my strenth of soul You increased...Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You preserve my life;...The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; Your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever."
Have a beautiful day. And remember, God has a special plan for your life. I am bubbling out of my skin waiting for Him to show me His plan! I hope you are too!

  1. I'm am so thankful for God's protecting hand!
    Every morning when I wake up, I lay in bed a while and pray. As I pray for each of my children and their spouses, one of my specific requests is that God will protect them from a car accident that day if that is His will. I'm so thankful that He chose to deliver you!

    You mentioned Psalm 138. The following Psalm is one of my favorites--and you made reference to it in your blog. But verse 5 says, "You have enclosed me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me." Praise God that He surrounds us with His mighty hand!

    Love you, precious daughter-in-law!!
