Exalted

"Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress." Psalm 46:10-11
As the sun set yesterday and the day came to a close, November twelvth, was the completion of my (and yours) twenty-one day meditation through Psalm 46. Do you see how beautiful that red sky is? Breathtaking. The clouds were dark but only because it was getting dark, not because of a storm. And to capture a picture where the sun was setting right behind the power lines?? What a great reminder of God's power...EXALTED...in comparison to our own manpower! There is simply nothing like it!Nothing like Him! My heart felt as if it was setting too, like the sun,in it's time. I am ready and able to close this chapter and begin a new one. I am still and I know that you are God. You, my Lord, are exalted among the nations and the earth. Exalted.

Thanks to all of you for reading and for the e…

Come and See

"Come and see the works of the LORD. The desolation he has brought on the earth. He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth; he breaks the bow and shatters the spear." Psalm 46:8-9

Hey Friends, I have taken a few days off from writing the blog, but the Lord has certainly been filling me with His word! The time has changed, it's nice to have the light this early, and something else changed on Sunday...my age! I turned thirty-nine years old and I feel the time has changed in my own life. You know how much a child changes from a newborn to a three year old? Like night and day. Everything about them is different and though we loved those cuddly, tiny days, we also love getting more sleep at night! And their needs move from total dependency on others to talking and walking themselves. They discover, that though they think they can do everything by themselves, it's not possible, so they cry out, and throw a fit a (or two or ten). And we get them through it, loving them…

Lifts his Voice

"Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;he lifts his voice, the earth melts. The LORD Almighty is with us: The God of Jacob if our fortress."
Psalm 46:6-7

This is all love right here! A flower for his Mommy pulled up by the root and delivered right to my car window!While we wait on Abby each day, he and a friend play in a creek by the school. This picture was taken shortly after I had posted on how you can't see roots, but just see the pretty trees. I couldn't help but giggle when he walked up with those flowers and the ROOTS. He brought them as his gift to me, he is very thoughtful that way. I told him I needed a picture because I had just written about roots! He was quick to pose and I love that smile of his anyway! I have to share this about my little guy...this morning he was telling me.."Guess what happened yesterday, Mommy? I needed the wind to blow for a game we were playing and I prayed and then...it blew..that's just how God works. Oh and we get to wa…

Within

"God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day." Psalm 46:5

Good morning! It has been a few days, yet I am still in Psalm 46, still on a twenty-one day journey. I laugh at how literal I really am. This is day eleven and I am so wanting to look and see how many posts I have written, I felt sure I would write one a day! My eyes landed on this verse yesterday "If the Lord delights in a man's way, he makes his steps firm." Psalm 37:23 and was light a bolt of lightning! You see, I am learning, that when you walk by faith and not by sight, things just, quite frankly, don't make sense. Hmmm, great revelation at 5:15 am huh? So simple, but Lord, thank you for the reminder. Why do I get so caught up in the details that I miss the point, and maybe miss the lesson. HE is WITHIN me (and you) and I will not fall! I will stumble, will make mistakes, but when I am fully surrendered (over and over) to Him, my steps have to be firm. Because He does…
