Summer

It's my first day of summer. At least, according the Multnomah calendar. What am I doing? - laying in bed blogging. And it's raining. 

All of these things are not what I expected summer to be like. I expected SUNSHINE (is that too much to ask for? It IS summer...); I expected to have a job (still none on the horizon); I expected to have more of life together (nope - life is falling apart). 

But God quietly whispered, "AM I not still in control? Do I not have your best interests in mind? Don't you know I love you?" 

And to be honest, I don't remember. When things are falling apart around me and I just want to hide out, I fail to think of the promises of the Lord. 

Lord, help me to remember that You DO have my best interests in mind and that You ARE still in control. Cause I won't remember it if you don't help. 


In other news, I'll be in  Missouri next week. And Tennessee the week after. Praise Yah!

I think I needed that reminder too... especially as I am looking at a possibly $17,000 deficit for camp.

I can't wait to see you and hug you.

Love you.

Do you have the Ali Roger's CD "You and the Evening Sky?" If yes, listen to the song "New Today." That is the song God pointed out to me a week ago whenever I was feeling like everything was out of control. If you don't have it, look at a hymn book or google the lyrics for "Great Is Thy Faithfulness" and that should do it too.

"Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."
Lamentations 3: 22-23

Psalm 46:10 and Philippians 4:6-7 always help keep me in check...
