In Awe of God’s Love

Psalms 32:8

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.

Prayer Focus:  Those Following God’s Call

  1. WOW is right. God is Good all the time. All the time, God is good as Lynn T. would say and it is so true. I’m beginning to think perhaps there are several books in your future. I don’t see how you can put it all in one. You had it separated as you were speaking to me several hours ago. YOU CAN DO IT! Remember if you hear Him call you one more time to answer “Speak, Lord, for your servant listens.” God doesn’t do things half way. He can work out the details but He needs you to do the ground work.
