Looking at the Rain

2/22/2012

  Last night I got my hair done; in my favorite spiral curls. I must say, It always looks good on me +++ I can make the style last for over 2 weeks. Any way, when I woke up this morning, I got sad because it was raining here in Nashville. Mannn, my hair is gonna get wet! Dang,this mist is going to take some of the life from my curls! Now I may only get 10 days out of my hair. Complain, complain, complain. Then immediately I was convicted by the Holy Spirit. What did you say?

  Every morning the first words from my mouth are "I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth (Psalm 34:1)". Every morning without fail. All I could do after my thoughts, was ask for forgiveness for making my hair a small g.  We have so many small g's in our lives. Whether it's ourselves, our children, spouses, jobs, or even our credit scores. We need to rid ourselves of these small g's that we give more attention to than we do the one and only Big G; The great I AM. I was also reminded about the families and individuals that live in my neighborhood who were affected by the Great May floods of 2010. In most cases, many of those families lost all of their material possessions. Those 3 days all we could say was "I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears." Nearly 2 years later, many of the homes have been torn down and the families relocated. Nevertheless, I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

WOW. What a day this was. This page is the 2nd day of flooding.











Even though this was a scary time, it was also a scrapbook moment. This was very dangerous because the water was rising and rushing so quickly, we could have been swept away. If my car had stalled, we would have been killed. Thank you Lord for your grace and mercy.
