Friday's Favorite quote for Friday, January 26th
Don't tell God
How big the storm is.
Tell the storm
How big God is!
I remember my Mom using the expression "When it rains, it pours!" Sometimes, since we lived in Seattle, she meant that statement literally. We had LOTS of rain.
Other times she meant that sometimes life has a way of coming at you with multiple challenges, and you will feel you are being pelted with heavy rain.
It has been just that kind of week.
So many people I love and care about are facing new challenges. Andy, Kim, Dale, Grandma Phyllis. And today Erik, my son, has surgery in Seattle. None of the challenges are small. There are some tough mountains to climb.
Not long ago Amy gave me a CD with some Christian songs that have brought me comfort during this storm, this downpour.
On one of them the chorus says,
"So come on home
His arms are open wide.
His name is Jesus.
He is the answer
You are looking for.
So come home running
Just as you are!"
Every morning this week I have listened to these songs, cried myself down Thor and into the parking lot at school, and worked on saying in my prayers...please God, help my friends. Please God bring relief. Please God bring complete healing to their bodies and their spirits. Please God be there with all those who love them. Please God bring them comfort.
While I can make food and visit, I can also pray.
So today, I will remember that His arms are open wide. He is the answer I am looking for. I can come home running, just as I am. Today I will yell at the top of my voice.."LOOK STORM.. LOOK HOW BIG GOD IS!!!!"
God Bless! Love, Linda
