the promise

i woke up this morning with the 'onslaught' on my mind. at least 15 projects all swimming around in random, chaotic ways. the thing that God has blessed me to be able to do, once again trying to force its way into becoming my kingdom. determined, i turn to the Lord, who has not left me stranded without hope.

my devotional said this:
In multiplicity of duties you may lose sight of Me momentarily, but even in the most pressing circumstances you will discover My presence when you pause to worship Me silently in your heart. Never fear that activity will crowd Me out. I will be very real to you at all times if you do not let the confusion that is around you in the world invade your inner sanctuary.

in other words:
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil 4:7

thank you Lord for a sanctuary. i keep thinking of my little screened-in porch, where i can look out and see all around me, but feel safe and protected and somehow the 'ugly' is filtered and i concentrate on the beauty.

thankful i have a road trip on the agenda today, so that i can be out in the middle of dakota, and praise and be with my very favorite One.

:) happy tuesday!

thanks girls, i had a great day. at one point, a HUGE sunbeam came down on me as i was driving, saturating me with warmth. as i cranked the radio up to sing, the song was this:

I will sing a song of hope
Sing along
God of heaven come down
Heaven come down
Just to know that You are near is enough
God of heaven come down, heaven come down

NOT kidding. He is near us!

I'm all teary. I have been feeling His presence so strongly lately that I had to raise my arms high in the air during the middle of the video portion of my bible study. I just could not help it!
