This past week has been crazy, and I was not adequately prepared for the flood of emotions that poured out this morning. First, the Lord blessed us with an answer to a prayer I had just prayed yesterday. It was not anything I deserved, but that’s just God. He is full of grace and I am so thankful. Even the Daily Bread devotional this morning was meant for me. I bawled like a baby when I read it. It was like my Heavenly Father spoke it to me personally. I’m glad my Father takes care of me. Don’t you love it when you witness something that you know only God could do?
Today was my third father’s day without my dad. Last year seemed to be fairly easy, so I didn’t think too much of it this time around, but it did get to me a bit today. I guess I’ll always miss him, no matter what day it is.
When we left Florida yesterday, there was a feeling of finality that washed over me. I felt like that might have been our last trip to Destin for awhile, for some reason. I don’t know-part of me feels like the Lord is preparing me for something-and I know he does that because he has done it to me before, and I don’t know what to think about it all. A lot of uncertainty in my life right now, and it’s not easy. I know this-I will go through whatever is thrown in my path, with the Lord holding my hand every step of the way. I read on a friend’s facebook this morning, that “our tests become our testimony.” That is the truth, isn’t it?
This is a song I have come to love and cling to when troubles come. It’s called “Shadowfeet” by Brooke Fraser, and she has a phenomenal voice.
On a lighter note, I will be updating the blog with pics from our vacation as soon as I have time. We had a great time and the Lord allowed us to have a very fun and full week enjoying the beauty of his creation.
