This week, I have been sort of, awe struck at how God has led me down the most interesting path. I am on one incredible journey that God seems to just take me by the hand and lead me. It's hard to explain. I have been praying for several people, and this week I was struck with a pinched siatic nerve or tremendous back pain, and I prayed that God would use that pain to remind me of who I needed to pray for (so I'm pretty sure I was praying alot). The pain is just now beginning to subside, but I remember asking God to keep it there for as long as He needed it – whether it was to refine something in me or for some other reason.
I was at worship rehearsal, and usually rehearsal's are get in there do what you need to do, and get out; however, tonite God was really moving in the room. I would close my eyes and sing, and the presence of His Spirit was just utterly amazing. I don't know if I was just in the right frame of mind (with the back and all) or if I just needed an extra special touch of His mercy and grace tonite – whatever it was, was absolutely divine.
I am so thankful for the blessings in my life – friends and family whom I have known all my life or friends whom I am just getting to know. I love the seasons of life – God gives us exactly what we need, when we need it. Sometimes we need to know how special we are. Sometimes we need to be praying for others. Sometimes we need to see the blessing and power of giving. And sometimes we need to see that our journey is not in our hands, and when we relinquish that control, God can take you to places you never thought possible.
May tomorrow and each day be filled with a new blessing from our heavenly Father, and you feel the touch of His Hand on you. Blessings.
