Always There

Look to the Lord
and His strength;
seek His face always.

Psalm 105:4

As I look around,
it can all just crash over me.

I feel a little lost 
in the whirlwind.

I can't keep up. 

I need peace.

I want clarity.

I've been so serious,

I want to lighten up,

Even as I speak 
what is on my heart,
You respond.

What I'm trying to do here is to get you to relax, 
to not be so preoccupied with getting,
 so you can respond to God's giving.

Steep your life in God-reality, 
God-initiative, God-provisions. 
Don't worry about missing out. 
You'll find all your everyday 
human concerns will be met.

Give your entire attention 
to what God is doing right now, 
and don't get worked up 
about what may or may not happen tomorrow. 
God will help you deal with whatever 
hard things come up when the time comes.

Matthew 6:31, 33-34

Thank You, Father!

Once again You show me 
that You are Sovereign — 
that You go before me,
that you know what is in my heart
even before I do.

Thank You Jesus 
for being my 
Strength and my Shield,
my Rock!
