annnnd I’m about to turn out the light. I will get almost 8 hours of sleep if I turn it off right now and immediately fall asleep. And stop typing. hahaha
But I’ll take just a couple minutes to reflect over this God-given day. It was a good day. I felt a lot better (physically) when I woke up this morning… still couldn’t eat as much today and was craving very light foods. But energy level was high, and spirits were higher.
I love when God’s awesome glory captivates me. It seems to come in flickers and I’ll just stop for a moment and feel like crying. It happened to me today as I was pulling out of the plaza where I’d gone grocery shopping. I was just overwhelmed with God’s goodness and provision. His grandeur and omnipresence, even in the minute details of my day.
He’s so big.
And His love is so deep.
Tonight my bible study group had a worship night on the sand. The weather was brilliant. I feel British when I use that adjective. But it really was, brilliant! The sky was beautiful as it changed from orange to purple to pink as the sun was setting over the water. The water looked like someone had spilled pink paint onto the surface that created rippling streaks as the tide slowly ebbed and flowed.
The reflections of the sky on the water, and the awareness that God knows the number of each grain of sand, as well as each hair on my head was awe-inspiring. And He still takes the time to lead me every step of the way through my day.
“You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me.” Psalm 139:5
I feel so safe with you
I know you’ve gone before me
I know you’re behind me also
You’ve hemmed me in
There is no move that I can make that you don’t yet know
You know my motives and my desires
You know my aspirations
You know my weaknesses and my failures
Yet you still care for me
You still work everything for my good
You still teach me and comfort me
I thank thee Lord for your love that wilt not let me go
It won’t let me go
You pursue me to the depths and water my frame
You mold me into the perfect design that you thought of before time
I thank thee for your control
I’m lost without you! Yet I’ll never be lost, for you are always with me
You are Faithful; Faithful is your name
