"In the same way, when God wanted to confirm His promise as true and unchangeable, He swore an oath to the heirs of that promise. So God has given us two unchanging things: His promise and His oath. These prove that it is impossible for God to lie. As a result, we who come to God for refuge might be encouraged to seize that hope that is set before us. That hope is real and true, an anchor to steady our restless souls, a hope that leads us back behind the curtain to where God is (as the high priests did in the days when reconciliation flowed from sacrifices in the temple) and back into the place where Jesus, who went ahead on our behalf, has entered since He has become a High Priest forever in the order of Melchizedek."
Hebrews 6:17-20 VOICE
This past weekend and again this morning I awoke with a heaviness on my heart and mind. I thanked God for each new day and prayed for the weight to be lifted. As I focused, thought, and prayed I realized, it wasn't a weight or burden but instead, compassion and love for others. There are times in life when God places a person or family on your heart, what do you do? I pray for them, God knows, right?
The last song I heard before leaving for school this morning and upon returning this evening, "Eye of the Storm" by Ryan Stevenson. Each time I found myself singing, clapping, and lost in the worship of this song. A moisture on my cheeks and peace in my heart. Although the concern I continue to lift in prayer might be a weight, God is my anchor, YOUR anchor, and as long as we keep looking up and praying...
We ALWAYS HAVE HOPE! I hope you'll take a few minutes and listen to this song. Think about who your anchor is when troubles come your way. I have the best family and friends a woman could ask for (just ask me) yet I need God and His strength to hold in the storm. It wasn't a coincidence I heard this song on K-Love before leaving my home and upon my return today, it was God reminding me of His power, strength, and love for us.
I'm thankful K-Love is playing on the radio 24/7, I might have missed the blessing today.
When a random name comes to your mind, what do you do?
