Last Wednesday I went to the Christian book store to see if Beth Moore had a book version of her new study on Esther yet. I thought I might read it at family camp. Well she doesn't have it out yet but my eyes caught her book Believing God. I started to cry right there in Lifeway because I felt this overwhelming impression that God wanted me to read that book, but I didn't want that message because I knew it probably meant that I was going to need that message which wouldn't be the case if my RA came. I bought the book and am on Chapter 3. Of course it is great and is talking about having Faith in God's promises. Everything I need to hear but I wish he had given it to me in February so I could be passed this lesson. :)
On Thursday when all the RA's were starting to come in on Adopt Talk I was driving myself crazy checking my phone and the internet. I prayed that God would just tell me what I needed to hear that day and then I turned on the radio. The lyrics "In good times and in bad, You are on Your throne. You are God alone." came across the airways. Again I started crying because I knew in that moment that He was reminding me that He is still in charge when my RA does not arrive and this meant it probably wouldn't be arriving.
Well, today I was driving and listening to my Kari Jobe album when I heard a song that I have never paid much attention to before. I played it 5 times on my way home. I thought of a few friends who are waiting on RA's and TA's too. Shannon and Kristine, I hope this encourages you too.
Since it is not released yet, I couldn't access it for my play list, so I made a video with it of pics from our past years at Pine Cove Family Camp. We leave to go to family camp in 3 days. This is my ultimate place of rest. Yes I know it is oxymoronic that I got busy making a video for a song about being still.
Enjoy and be encouraged by these lyrics.
