Praises Along the Way--Lord over the Flood

September 6, 2008

Last evening Matt's mom went to the hospital with back pain and she came home yesterday with an appointment for a specialist. Last night Matt's dad went to the hospital with pneumonia. Last night Danni had a more serious surgery than we expected. We would have never guessed that she would get a new shunt. (I'm referring to my last blog).

How crazy our life has gotten. In some ways I can relate to the hurricane people who also have to deal with flood waters, just a different kind. Everyone goes through floods in life that attempt to drown them be it spiritual, physical, mental or emotional. Most times all of those things are involved because you can't separate them, they are all rolled into one.

I was reading a scripture on a web site I check every day and I was encouraged by the scripture they had posted. I read it every day because it seems that the scripture always speaks directly to my circumstances. Today it was Psalm 29:10-The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord sits enthroned as King forever.

What an awesome promise. I know the Lord has led me to this scripture before but it was good for me to read it again and with the circumstances we've been through in the last 2 or 3 days I'd say it was very appropriate. I love how God gives you what you need when you need it.

What a comfort to know that no matter what happens He is still in control. I give him thanks and praise and once again I put my trust in him.

Thank God!!! He is in control!!!

Hope your in-laws along with Danni are feeling better! What you said is SO TRUE! HE IS ALWAYS IN CONTROL no matter what--he knows why and what is planned and what his reasoning is. We are all in the HIS PLAN! Prayers are with you and your entire family!

Hey all
Read this at church this today...

Your Love will find me.
As I cannot count the sand,
I cannot count the things
You've planned.
But when I wake up everyday
to face the morning,
You meet me there.
You're everywhere.

Just liked what it said to me.
Hope you do too.
