This morning we awoke to all our different alarms going off...first my husband's, then mine, then the twins. It was quite comical as we all sleep in the same room! Since my husband is still in-processing and didn't have a meeting early in the morning, he was actually able to go with us to take the twins to their first day of school. Blessing #1.
Blessing #2 - it doesn't take long to clean your house when all you have is one room! Not to mention the maids do all the dirty work for you and even make your beds!! We returned to find the maid had already come in and cleaned and all I had left to do was a little organizing (I'm trying to make this room as big as possible!).
Blessing #3 - I had uninterrupted time with the Lord this morning! That doesn't happen too often and it sure was nice. This morning as I was praying about the many things we still have up in the air - like them getting my husband's pay straight, our house back home needing to sell, us getting into our house here and so on - I came across the scripture printed at the bottom of my journal. The Lord will fight for you; you need only be still (Exodus 14:14). I can't tell you how many times over the last few months God has used those scriptures printed at the bottom of my journal to speak to me. I'll write as I pray and when I stop to read the scripture the answer is right there. Today it is BE STILL. I can't change anything that is taking place right now, but God can. I need only to be still!
Thank you, Lord, for speaking your truth to me. Thank you for caring for our family, both here and back home. Thank you for your protection, your grace and your mercy. Thank you for loving us and fighting our battles for us. We trust in you with all that we have and we thank you for your many blessings. I will rest in you today and cling to your promises. Thank you for your presence. Amen.
