Listen and Be Calm

Tonight I've been sitting at my computer wishing I had the words to say what I'm thinking.  Sometimes you just don't.  At times I find myself with way too many thoughts....about way too many things....hard things. the midst of my thinking....I really start to think....

Who is it that is always with me through everything....easy and hard?  That's right.  The One that is always right beside me....holding me up when I start to fall....picking me up when I have fallen.  Sheltering me when the storms start pounding down....hugging me when I'm sure I just can't take anymore.  Giving me strength when I'm too sick to make it on my me comfort and hope to cast away all the doubt in my mind.  There are so many things He does for me...everyday....and I am so thankful

Sometimes you just have to open your eyes....your heart....your whole self up to the still and listen and think calmly.  Psalms 62:5-8 says this....

My soul, wait only upon God and silently submit to Him; for my hope and expectation are from Him.
He only is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my Defense and my Fortress, I shall not be moved.
With God rests my salvation and my glory; He is my Rock of unyielding strength and impenetrable hardness, and my refuge is in God!
Trust in, lean on, rely on, and have confidence in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is a refuge for us (a fortress and a high tower). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

I like that passage.  He really is all we need.  At times it can be hard to get there....for me to understand that no matter whats going on God really does have it all under control.  We just have to trust Him and know it will all be okay and not let things shake you.  Then continue to pray....worship....and give thanks to the Lord for He is good.

Psalms 118:1
O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever!

 "until we see JESUS....face to face"
