Safe *peaceful sigh*

If you've been around here long enough, you probably know two things that really move me:
Prayer and music.
They are both significant ways in which God and I connect.
Well, I have been praying for several friends over the past few days - friends who are facing difficult circumstances. I've been praying about my own trials, too. And sometimes all this praying makes my heart feel heavy. Even though I know God is more than able to manage the issues, sometimes the circumstances just grip me with sadness.
But my Father knows how my heart operates, and He knows how to lift me up. Yesterday as I was driving and praying, and my heart was getting heavy - this song came on the radio, and His Spirit spoke to mine. He lifted me up and has been holding me close.
I am safe.
You are safe.
*peaceful sigh*

Note to self: Do not watch a video on youtube when you're in a meeting... because even though there is no music, you can see the words on the screen and you might start to tear up right then and there infront of four of your male coworkers.

thank you.

a message i can never hear enough times.

Jodi - Thanks. I'll look for it!

I love that song! Thanks for reminding me of it. I've also been praying for several friends and situations lately, and yes, it can make your heart feel heavy and also cause you to feel helpless. Thankfully it is NOT all up to us!

Very comforting to know that, no matter what the Lord allows in our lives, we are SAFE.

Chris - Ah, yes! I am so thankful it is NOT up to us. Indeed!

Leah - Because whatever He allows has a purpose, and we can trust Him.
