Calling to mind

It's Sunday morning. Things aren't picture perfect here, as I'm sure they aren't in your house either. Honestly I'm fighting to squeak out little prayers of, "Help me Lord." and "Give me a drink of your living water Lord... I'm so thirsty!"

That Still Small Voice reminded me to call to mind the hope I once shared with others, the vision and promises God had planted in my heart before this storm hit my life.

So I went back to the archives of my old Timothy Moms blog. I went there because as I watched my boys this morning I felt empty as to what to teach them. If I'm to teach them diligently God's word when I sit in my house, and walk by the way, when I lie down and when I wake up, my question is, "What if I have no idea what to teach? What if no message for them is pressing on my heart?" So I prayed, "What do I teach them Lord?" And then I went to Timothy Moms.

Here's what I read:

I realize that just as it was for …

What do I know of Holy

I made You promises a thousand times
I tried to hear from Heaven
But I talked the whole time
I think I made You too small
I never feared You at all No
If You touched my face would I know You?
Looked into my eyes could I behold You?

(CHORUS)
What do I know of You
Who spoke me into motion?
Where have I even stood
But the shore along Your ocean?
Are You fire? Are You fury?
Are You sacred? Are You beautiful?
What do I know? What do I know of Holy?

I guess I thought that I had figured You out
I knew all the stories and I learned to talk about
How You were mighty to save
Those were only empty words on a page
Then I caught a glimpse of who You might be
The slightest hint of You brought me down to my knees

(CHORUS)
What do I know of You
Who spoke me into motion?

Praise for today

I praise You for Your sovereignty over the broad events of my life and over the details. With You, nothing is accidental, nothing is incidental, and no experience is wasted. You hold in Your own power my breath of life and all my distiny. And every trial that You allow to happen is a platform on which You reveal Yourself, showing Your love and power, both to me and to others looking on. Thank You that I can move into the future nondefensively, with hands outstretched to whatever lies ahead, for You hold the future and You will always be with me, even to my old age... and through all eternity. - from 31 Days of Praise by Ruth MyersIsaiah 51:3

My Jehoshaphat Moment

"Then some came and told Jehoshaphat, saying, 'A great multitude is coming against you...'"

"And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD..."

"Then Jehoshaphat stood...and said, ' O LORD God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations, and in Your hand is there not power and might, so that no one is able to withstand You?"

"For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You."

"And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the LORD, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying:

Praise the LORD, for His mercy endures forever."

"Now when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushes against the people... who had come against Judah, and they were defeated."
