…”Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!”
Thought for the Day: God is always with you.
Finally, finally, finally! When we looked for houses and found the one that would be our home, we were thrilled and excited about many possibilities. One of my biggest plans was to sit outside on our deck to hear the creek that runs beside our house and to hear the other sounds of nature. We moved at the end of December so for these first few months it has been cold and dreary. As the weather became milder I came out during the daytime but for only short moments of time. This morning, in the darkness, I walked outside thinking it would still be too cool but to my surprise it was very comfortable. So I gathered my coffee, my blanket, my Bible, and my computer and sat down in my chair on the patio. Ah, sweet peace.
So now, as I sit outside in the darkness as the light is beginning to awaken the night, I hear the creek, that creek I have been longing to hear. The sound is peaceful and reminds me that, even though I didn’t sleep well during the night, that God will bring me peace. I see the silouettes of the trees as they cascade above my head and surround me that God will bring me protection. Then I hear the sounds of the birds singing and as I listen I hear a lot of birds, but the ones that stand out in their calls are the ones with the same sounds I heard when I sat outside in our previous home. That reminds me that God has been with my family all the way through and that He is with us in our new place.
God is here. God has always been here. God brings us peace. God brings us protection. I praise Him today that in this new place and in this new life that He has reminded me of His glory and has reminded me that He is with me, has always been with me, and He will be with me every step of this live that He has given.
Prayer: God, thank you for loving us and showing us everyday that You are with us. Help us open our eyes to see Your glory….for it is beautiful. Amen.
