“God persists in finding ways to whisper into our hearts the truth that we are loved”
(Plan B-Pete Wilson)
God has been so mercifully sweet to whisper encouragement, direction and love to me this week. So much of it has come through all of you.
And again, before the sun came up and before my eyes opened I was hearing (in my mind) a song. It was Everlasting God that played me awake this morning.
I smiled as I became aware of the words and the surety that He was singing over me so to speak. My heart was overflowing with thanksgiving before my feet hit the floor.
(That’s not always how I wake up. So often I wake with a tightness in my chest and worrisome thoughts coming at me at lightning speed. So, I’m truly grateful when God wakes me with a song.)
I believe when we’re on a difficult journey God is even more nose-to-nose with us. If we allow Him access.
One way He whispers love and encouragement to me, I believe, is through music. Both secular and Christian. These days I’m only listening to Christian music though. It’s necessary for me right now. And He’s using the music I’m listening to and the books I’m reading and the time I spend in His word to give courage to my heart.
Again, my journey isn’t anything compared to the one some of you are traveling.
To those who have shared with me, I’m holding you tenderly in my heart saying prayers for you continually.
One of the things I’m praying is that each one of you will hear the whispers from God’s heart to yours…
We’ve decided to go on our vacation. My son, Timothy and his girlfriend, Jamie will be staying at the house with Emma and keeping up with the enormous pack of pups. My friend Julie, who is very medically minded and heaven help her, thinks a lot like me, will be checking in on Em from time to time.
So I’m going to get in the car Saturday morning and drive to Rosemary Beach and leave Emma and Baby to the One who loves them the most.
And if you think that sounds easy … think again. I broke out in a sweat just typing it.
Love to you…
