This journey of ours is full of ups and downs, this has been a long down for me but in the midst of it all when I turn to Him he surprises me with the oddest yet most comforting things.
here are a few of them
I was "soaking" the other day...... what is soaking you ask, well I don't think I can explain it well as it is a new concept to me. Super Mom told me I need to spend more time one on one with the Lord to draw on Him for strength.... not rely on my own, which is what I tend to do.... I think most strong people can exhaust their own strength before seeking His! So I play music and lie on my bed and think about Him.... and try really hard to keep my mind from wondering!! I was doing this last week and I got a picture in my mind, that is a way that God talks to me. The picture was of fiddlehead fern click here to see a picture of one
and I asked Him what does that mean?, and I sensed He was saying to me, that is how tightly I have wrapped Myself around you..... I totally felt His presence and I keep taking comfort from that.
Then tonight as I was driving home from taking the kids to see Ratatouille
It was soooo cute btw! ) a song came on the radio, I will remember you, by Sarah McLachlan and I felt as if the Lord was singing it to me, I will remember you do you remember me don't let your life pass you by, I will remember you. I am probably getting the words a bit mixed up but I could totally feel the Holy Spirit whispering to my spirit saying I am here, I haven't forgotten, I love you, I always remember you...... again sooo comforting just when I needed it!
Then I get home and get a little comment on my blog from my oldest who is away at the Ranch for 12 days and I miss already...... and I felt loved. miss you baby!!
So just when I think I am down and troubled and I need a helping hand..... He just calls out my name and no matter wherever I am He comes running to see me again.....
