Joey and I started our time by going to visit Janie Beth. It was a cloudy day yesterday and extremely windy (bringing in the storms that we are having this morning, I gather). We were there for a little while and then were hugging before we left. You know what God did!?! The sun shone right down on us through the clouds!!!!! The rays hit the side of my cheek, and I turned my head to see. The Son was shining on me!!! It was only on us! It happened again right before we left but larger this time. It warmed my heart so much! Even through these awful clouds, God is shining down on us. His hand is on me just as the sun's ray was on my cheek, so tender but lifts my head! God's hand gently caresses my cheek and lifts it up when it gets too low. How amazing!! He cares for me so much. He truly is my Abba Father. Just so you know, the sun didn't shine on us again for the rest of the day, but the Son sure did!! It was such a blessed time to be together, and I could feel the presence of God with us.
We are changing up our Sunday routine beginning today. Joey and I are going to find a couples Sunday School class and start going to the later service at church. We are very excited to go to class together!!! This doesn't change Katie Jo or Eli's schedule, but Josiah will change Sunday school classes as well since he goes to big church with us. KJ goes to children's church right now. This is part of our new normal. This is a change God wanted to make in our lives and it took Janie Beth to do it. Yet another blessing of Janie Beth. Isn't she great! :) God is changing our family, and I am thankful! He is Awesome!!
I pray that you all experience God's presence in worship this morning! Let Him shine on you and caress your cheek ever so tenderly. It feels really good, and warm too!
Thank You Abba for meeting with me yesterday! Thank You for the freedom to worship you in church today! Thank You for changing our routine and bringing a new normal. Give my baby girl a squeeze for me! I love her! Thank You for the privilege of loving her! Thank You for loving me so much!! May I bring glory and honor to You today. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen
