Today Reminder – 28 August 2015 (Day 19 – You)

A reminder for today
My hands have made both heaven and earth; they and everything in them are mine. I, the LORD, have spoken!
"I will bless those who have humble and contrite hearts, who tremble at my word.” (Isaiah 66:2)

I woke up this morning and I lay for a moment listening at the quiet night and the city noises around me. I could hear my boys sleeping in the next room and I was filled with content. I waited for a moment as if I was waiting for you Lord. I have many questions, yet my answers are still evading me. I have many concerns and yet I fear the outcomes. I have many regrets yet I know you forgave them and I have many problems yet you are in control of all of them. 

I got up and covered my boys and stood there for a moment looking at them as they slept so peacefully. I know that their hearts is in your hands yet I worry about those tiny hearts. I went on and had my morning shake as I waited for the tumble dryer to end so that I can iron our clothes.

I stood there in that quiet semi dark kitchen and I felt you Lord as you placed your hand on me. I felt your calm grace covering me like I covered my sons with their blankets. I felt that my soul relaxed and peaceful as they were. I felt your presence and I was overwhelmed again at the wonder of your love.

I know I am yours just as they are yours and I am in awe of you Lord. I carried on and prepared their lunch boxes and the things they needed for school until my youngest finally woke up.

I am excited at your plans for me Lord even though I have no idea what awaits me; I know we will be great.

I will bless those who have humble and contrite hearts, who tremble at my word.

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
