I think it’s amazing how God orchestrates the things in our lives. I can’t wrap my mind around what must be going on in the spiritual realm! And there’s a LOT going on! I think if we were to even see a tiny glimpse, we’d be overwhelmed. But, we can’t see that stuff, so we walk by faith, not sight!
Yesterday, when I was feeling frustrated, God put just the right people, to speak just the right words, right when and where they needed to be! God’s given me such great friends and support right here in our community, who always love on, and encourage me. That’s pretty awesome! What amazes me even more is when God sends someone you don’t expect. That friend from high school, that you haven’t spoken with in forever, who lives nowhere near you, and who, out of the blue, sends you a message on Facebook. Not just any message mind you, but a message about her struggles and how God has worked in her life, and to remind me that, no matter what I see, God IS working, and to let me know that she’s been praying for us. God is SO good!
Unfortunately, I just happened to open said message while in Walmart. People tend to look at you weird when you’re, sitting in the middle of the feminine product aisle, reading something on your phone and crying. I’m sure everyone thought I was watching some video with abused puppies, as ‘In The Arms Of The Angel’ played softly in the background, so no biggie. Which, just for the record, it TICKS ME OFF that anyone would use that song to try and get you to donate money for dogs! A song that gut wrenchingly sad should only be used to manipulate your emotions for the sake of dying humans! Ok, no one get their dander up! I like dogs, I have two of them, and I don’t want to see them hurt. I’d just prefer to use my money to help HUMANS. Anyway, back to what I was saying, before I interrupted myself.
Ok, that didn’t happen. Well, not the sitting in Walmart crying part. I was actually walking, and I was only crying a little, while trying desperately to think of something hilarious to keep from wailing! Ah, thankfully I remembered a song me and Kenny had made up years ago. So, if anyone was watching me, I probably REALLY looked crazy! Just for the record….I’m not!! God’s just overwhelming! Thank you Lord for giving us exactly what we need at exactly the right time!
Worry weighs us down; a cheerful word picks us up. Proverbs 12:25
I pray that the God who gives hope will fill you with much joy and peace while you trust in him. Then your hope will overflow by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
