On My Own

Well, Craig is on the road this weekend. He'll be ministering at a church in Miami and visiting his grandmother in South Florida while he is there. He hasn't seen her in a while so that will be good.

So- I am on my own with the girls until he gets back. He used to travel full time and I was used to handling everything myself. We'll see if it is like getting back on a bicycle!

I've been studying a very interesting book lately. I plan on blogging about it this evening. It has awakened some things in me. Good things. Its almost like a part of me has regained feeling after having been asleep, so I kind of have that "pins and needles" feeling. Weird, huh?

Anyhow, I just wanted to check in this morning and share a passage of scripture I have been "chewing on." It is truly blessing me- I hope it does you, too!

Psalm 139 (The Message)
(1-6) God, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand. I'm an open book to you; even from a distance, you know what I'm thinking. You know when I leave and when I get back; I'm never out of your sight. You know everything I'm going to say before I start the first sentence. I look behind me and you're there, then up ahead and you're there, too— your reassuring presence, coming and going. This is too much, too wonderful— I can't take it all in! (7-12) Is there anyplace I can go to avoid your Spirit? to be out of your sight? If I climb to the sky, you're there! If I go underground, you're there! If I flew on morning's wings to the far western horizon, You'd find me in a minute— you're already there waiting! Then I said to myself, "Oh, he even sees me in the dark! At night I'm immersed in the light!" It's a fact: darkness isn't dark to you; night and day, darkness and light, they're all the same to you. (13-16) Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother's womb. I thank you, High God—you're breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I'd even lived one day.

How awesome to know that He is and has always been aware of my highs, lows, beginnings, middles, and end! I was created to please Him and fulfill His good works! I have PURPOSE! I've always known this, I work diligently to fulfill it- but sometimes it feels great to have it affirmed by the author of ME!
