I've been quakin'

It's been a quakin' kind of week. Life has presented one challenge after another. I've felt everything from extreme anxiety to outright fear. Spent one sleepless night followed by a night of deep sleep from complete exhaustion. I've been hopeful one moment and despaired the next. I guess you could say I've been on an emotional roller coaster, and I'm ready to GET OFF!

Through all this quaking, one constant has remained -- the steadfast presence of God. I haven't always felt His presence, but I've trusted that He is there. After all, He promised He would be. Why would I quit believing that promise now? Now's the time I need my Rock the most -- when life is quakin'.

God has continued to pour His Word into my mind even when I could not sit still. I'm so thankful for my IPOD, my walking shoes, and some great messages from Godly women. The amazing part has been God's perfect timing. He sent a message of hope when I despaired, a message of comfort when sadness gripped me, and a gentle rebuke when I needed correction. God sent just what I needed. How did He know? He knew because He's God, and He knows me inside and out. Perhaps the most amazing thing is that He still loves me. No the most amazing thing is that He loved me in the first place.

I sure am glad that when life is quakin' my God is standing firm.
