I may be as dense as the fog…

Since coming to the LORD, and asking HIM to shake it all out, turn it upside down, and create in me a clean heart…life has drastically changed.  About the time my complacency sets in, everything turns upside down again.. Postitve that is a prayer HE will honor.

Over the past few years, HE has been showing me how much I am in HIS hand, and how very safe I am.  Its a wonderful thing to just know, that nothing or no one can take me from HIS hand.

Today, our temps were above freezing, but very dense fog..little did I know that the road temp was still freezing. So the fog was acting like freezing rain where ever it was dense.  My first time around a sharp bend it was not frozen, the second time, the bus slid sideways, and I saw the telephone pole, and although I would like to take credit for the smooth driving back to safety, I can’t. It was not manuverable in a full size bus that doesn’t bend in the middle.  This happened right after another bus driver hit my mirror with his, and the noise was so loud, and the mirror is in tact, not even a scratch.  

This is the third time that I had an experience that was life threatening in a vehicle, and my peace was in tact, and left the scene wondering what just happened.  The third time that I heard his small voice aftewards, “No one can take you out of my hand, I am big enough, I am strong enough, is that enough for you?” 

Whoa! praying that I got it that time, and that it resonates in every little crevice of my heart, and mind.  God has a plan, and I don’t know it, but I do know that HE can take care of me, and HE knows the way. I love HIM so!  Life is not do-able for me without HIM.

Thank you to all those who pray me through each day. (my philippians study will be up later this evening..just had to share 🙂  )

Happy Valentines Day

John 3:16  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that who so ever believes in Him will have eternal life.

How about that for a valentine from God?

Wide Eyed

While reading a post on my friend Joe’s blog, he reminded me of how often we dismiss people in our busy lives, and forgetting they are created in the image of our God.  How do we know we haven’t dismissed the “least of these”,when God has deliberately placed them in our path?  Or maybe entertaining Angels…ahhhh we don’t know..we just need to be open to whoever HE places in our path.  Joe’s post made me remember this song Wide Eye..sorry couldn’t find a good video to put up, but the words are powerful.  (Joe’s post left me wide eyed afresh, thanks Joe)

Nichole Nordeman- Wide eyed

Having lives in Hollywood for about a year,
I was forced to come face to face
with many diverse people everyday.
I was surprised and embarrassed by how sheltered
my life had been until then…
Surrounding myself mostly with people who were like-minded,
and consequently, safe to know.
I really had to come to terms with my quickness to judge,
to laugh, to dismiss anyone who threatened my sense of normalcy.
And it made me wonder –
how would I have reacted to Jesus
if I’d met Him in Los Angeles?

When I met him on a sidewalk
He was preaching to a mailbox
Down on 16th Avenue
And he told me he was Jesus
Sent from Jupiter to free us
With a bottle of tequila and one shoe
He raged about repentance
He finished every sentence
With a promise that the end was close at hand
I didn’t even try to understand

He left me wide eyed in disbelief and disillusion
I was tongue tied, drawn by my conclusions
So I turned and walked away
And laughed at what he had to say
Then casually dismissed him as a fraud
I forgot he was created in the image of my God

When I met her in a bookstore
She was browsing on the first floor
Through a yoga magazine
And she told me in her past life
She was some plantation slave’s wife
She had to figure out what that might mean
She believes the healing powers of her crystals
Can bring balance and new purpose to her life
Sounds nice

She left me wide eyed in disbelief and disillusion
I was tongue tied, drawn by my conclusions
So I turned and walked away
And laughed at what she had to say
Then casually dismissed her as a fraud
I forgot she was created in the image of my God

Not so long ago, a man from Galilee
Fed thousands with His bread and His theology
And the truth He spoke
Quickly became the joke
Of educated, self-inflated Pharisees like me

And they were wide eyed in disbelief and disillusion
They were tongue tied, drawn by their conclusions
Would I have turned and walked away
And laughed at what He had to say
And casually dismissed Him as a fraud
Unaware that I was staring at the image of my God
