I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
Thought for the Day: Stand in Awe of God’s Love
I stand in awe! I stand in awe of God’s wonderful love for me. Today, I was honored to speak to a group of lovely friends at church in one of the Sunday School Classes. As I spoke, I felt the prayers of all of those who responded when I asked. From the time I stood up to the time I finished, I felt I was covered with prayers. The time where I began weak as I sang, “I Will Sing the Wondrous Story” acapella, to the emotions I felt as I spoke about my brothers and then my first husband, to the celebration of where God has led us, and to sing with my husband, “Blessings”, made for a remarkable morning for me. I was made to feel very special when one after another of those in attendance came and spoke affirming words to me. After Sunday School, I saw a friend in the hallway who said she had something for me. She pulled out an envelope and said “I had you on my mind last night so I wrote a letter to you.” Mind you, I was taken aback because she didn’t know I had spoken to a Sunday School Class just minutes before. I put the letter aside as I needed to take care of my child and didn’t pull it out until several hours later. When I finally opened it to read, I felt overwhelmed with emotions as she stated that I needed to share my writing with others. It was beautifully written stating in seven or eight statements why she thought I needed to dedicate time to my writing. When I responded to her letter, all I could say is “Wow!”
This afternoon, as I sit on my back patio, I have contemplated what all this means and I’m truly not sure, but I feel something stirring inside me and I am trying to be faithful to God as I try to understand what that might be. Our last hymn in church this morning, after a very powerful sermon, was “I Surrender All”. Friends, today I ask for your prayers, again, as I try to figure it all out. I want to follow God’s calling but I want to be sure it is His calling, not my own emotions, that draw my actions. God, be with me today and show Your CLEAR path in front of me. I stand in awe, totally in awe of God’s love for me.
Prayer: Father God! WOW! I stand amazed in Your Presence and I watch for your CLEAR path to lead my way! God, You are awesome and I want to be a part of Your plan for my life. Amen.
