When our bodies fail us . When people fail us . When "systems" or "protocol" fails us . He remains . He is our only true strength . He is the only faithful . I'm grateful His love extends past me and who I am in a moment . I am grateful He continues to be WITH me in all situations .
So , this may sound far reaching , but try to hang with me for just a moment . The Lord is always teaching , showing and proving things to me as His daughter about His character , promises and His Word . As mentioned before it would seem those lessons are coming more frequent and in heavier doses . Through the thoughtfulness of good friends , God reminded me that He knows my needs before I do . Not only does He know them , He has already made a plan . I've been super sick and when I finally took some time to disinfect the house with Lysol and toss the things that can't be disinfected , i.e. m'chapstick , I told you to hang with me. As I tossed my chap stick I looked over to the kitchen table where one of my Valentines sat displayed . I'd forgotten about it in the midst of feeling so down & ill . Looking into the super cute pink box there sat not one , but two brand new , not infected with sick germs , tubes of chaps tick . Chap stick ! Not one , but two !!!! The very thing I had just thrown away . The thing I "needed" to give up because that's what is best for me . You can't keep toxic/infected things , people , or habits in your world and expect to remain well . He knows what we are going through , He wants to go through it with us . He knows who & what surrounds us daily and He wants to help us discern . He knows our simplest and our greatest of needs , He already has a plan to supply those and in some situations to multiply His provision .
Through a tube of chap stick , God spoke all that into my heart and mind . WHAT IN THE WORLD ???!!!! Blame it on dehydrated delirium if you like , but I believe I serve a God who is cool and clever like that . I believe I serve a God that knows exactly how to speak to me specifically in ways that I'll understand . Sometimes our God speaks with a whisper not a roar .
Long story even longer , LOL !!! What has He been showing you lately ? Has He spoken with a whisper or a roar ?! No matter where you are right now , what I would like for you to walk away from this post with is that He IS with you . He IS for you and He has a plan for you . Keep on keeping on loved ones .
