Karen, I just LOVE how you took those 2 words, "Even there", & showed us just how important they are in this context!! Wow!!

I will remember these 2 words when I am feeling not so great about my situation. Thank You!!

Have a great day!!

Patricia - Sometimes the little things are important, too, amen?
So glad God used these words to encourage you.

Thank you again for sharing my coffee with me this morning. And for the reminder that HE is there with me always...EVEN THERE!

i love that there is no where you can go without the presence of God being there!

Irritable Mother said...

KM - You're welcome. Someday I'd like to do it IRL. I mean, not that I'll actually drink any coffee, but the face-to-face would be fantastic!

Gianna - I was just thinking about you!
I love that, too.

I just love Psalm 139. I have never thought about verses 9 and 10 like that, though -- wow! My "even there" is motherhood. [No surprise there, eh?] It is SO COMFORTING to see that, "even there [in mothering my children] God's hand will guide me"!!! Thank you for sharing your insight, Karen. :)

Oh yes, the "even there"...in those moments JESUS is still right there and my soul is grateful.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful truth dear sister.

Even THERE? Wowza. I'd have to say my 'even there' is between the hours of 5 and 7pm, every single night. It's such a struggle, and I am so weary by that point in the day, that I just want to withdraw from everyone and hide myself away. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Karen - I will think about this tonight in my 'even there' time.

Irritable Mother said...

Sara - Yes! What a comfort to know we cannot go anywhere where He is not.
Even THERE!

Lisa - He gives me so much for which my soul is thankful. Your friendship is one of those things!

BusyB - Thank you.

Sarah - I call that the 'Witching Hour' and I understand you completely!
Hope it went better tonight, as you remembered that God was EVEN THERE.
