A Place


How precious are your thoughts towards me oh Lord, if I could count them they would out number the sand. (Ps 139) My thoughts kept me up last night until 3am. Have you ever had a night like that, where you want to fall asleep so bad, because the babies will be up at the same time no matter what? As my thoughts tossed and my body turned, I finally gave in, “If I am awake maybe there is a reason?”  So I allowed my thoughts to take me into a place of prayer.

I believe that life is changing for me and my house. And each day if feels as though my steps are being ordered. I stared at the ceiling listening to that incredibly annoying cricket outside my window, and my heart was so full.  There is nothing more precious than when you feel you have a place, a purpose and a promise to cling to. I never knew that such joy existed and it pains me for all the people walking around that are doing their best to make the money to pay the bills and yet their spirit is suffocating and the light in their soul is fading.

2 Thessalonians 1:11

The Message (MSG)

11-12Because we know that this extraordinary day is just ahead, we pray for you all the time—pray that our God will make you fit for what he’s called you to be, pray that he’ll fill your good ideas and acts of faith with his own energy so that it all amounts to something.

It is time for us, as Paul said, “To throw off every weight and snare that entangles us and RUN…” Find your place, find your purpose, and rely on his promises. He will fill you and make all your efforts of faith amount to something.
