what is done and yet to come, amen

immediately after the last post, God gave me Psalm 16. immediate answers. immediate refueling.

however, day to day, i must be refueled.

the past few weeks have been...i don't even have a word

at times i have felt so filled with joy and hope and surrounded by the pure love of Christ. I was held in His arms at Women's Worship last week. and every Sunday at worship. Its like my heart is just putty in the Lord's hands. Weepy putty. i cry in church. frequently. okay...every time. (my spiritual rock of the past couple years, Lisa Carr, once told us that she always cries in church, so i feel like i'm in good company.) the promise of God's provision is so humbling and yet so frightening from the worldly vantage point that we have, it just overwhelms me.

today in church we sang "open the flood gates of heaven. let it rain". amen. let the promises rain.

also in response to the previous post, not only did God give me Psalm 16, he also gave me Daniel 3...

"If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand, O king. But even if he does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up."

... wow. even if he does not. even if he doesn't provide them with the earthly response to his promises. they knew the Lord is faithful.

new friends are coming. new joy is coming. God has fulfilled his promises. i hope for what is to come.

as dave barnes says.... "what is done and yet to come, Amen."
