But as for me, I shall sing of Your strength ; Yes, I shall joyfully sing of Your loving kindness in the morning, For You have been my stronghold And a refuge in the day of my distress. O my strength, I will sing praises to You; For God is my stronghold, the God who shows me loving kindness.
Hello guys and gals,
I want to praise God right now for the strength in which He has given me. I went to work last night and was still sick. I was feeling worse than I had been the last three days. But knowing that they needed my help at work I went to work, instead of taking a sick day. As soon as I arrived and our shift started we got real busy, and I was able to stay busy until about 2:30 am, but everything that I had set out to do was done. I asked my supervisor if I could burn 4 hours of sick leave and he allowed me to come home. So I want to thank God for that strength.
Yesterday was a tough day for me with my eating schedule. I got of work at 7:00 am Sunday morning and came directly home to take a shower and sleep before church. I got me two hours of sleep in and headed to church, not able to eat any breakfast at the house, maybe I need to get up 15 minutes earlier for that time. Anyways, we got to church and usually they have some snack or breakfast there to eat. There was no exception but the breakfast was coffee cake (how do I figure out the calories). I fought with myself about not eating this yummy cake, but I know I need to continue to eat something so I don't let my body go into starvation mode. Well I took about an inch by inch piece and searched for a coffee cake on the website. I decided to use one that seemed to be what I was eating and used one serving. I think that we probably more than what I ate. But I would rather be over than under. lol
Church went real well, I always enjoy worship service. Nicholas and I came home and I decided to eat me a regular meal instead of a snack. I waited about 30 minutes before I went to bed again. I know I shouldn't eat and go right to bed but, once again I am not going to skip a meal. I didn't sleep good and so I didn't get to go to evening services, but I laid down on my couch and got me some good rest until the whole family got home at 8:00 pm. You already know the rest of my day. lol
I am feeling much better right now except for some aches and pains, but nothing to bad. Our good friends David and Karen gave my son Asher a folding chair with Lightening McQueen on it and he absolutely loves it. He has been eating his food at the coffee table and sitting in the chair. He has not been talking much but he is getting the hang of signing. He signed thank you and please today, he already knows more and eat. It is amazing to see this little one grow up.
I would like to share one thing I read about today. It came from a fellow sparker. Her name is SONGBIRDPAULA and she said a neat little phrase. I think we need to spread it. The phrase is simple and small ready? Here it comes..... "EAT LITE TO BE LITE." Lets make it a goal to post it once a day in a different forum this week.
Well now on to my verses today. I started reading Psalm 59 and did not know this verse was here. I figured what better time than now to share it. I have been finding much comfort and strength in my worship time here lately. When those around me are not able to look to the Lord, I will still sing praise to the most high God. The, I Am, is my strength and my fortress, He is my rock and my shield. I can go on and on. Its not hard to understand this verse because it is plain as day. At least it is to me. I love my Lord and the talent he has given to me to play my guitar.
Bless the Lord all my soul,
Ooooh my soul,
Worship His holy name,
Sing like never before,
Oh my soul,
I'll worship His holy name.
Lord I pray that you give me the strength to continue to sing your praises and worship you with all my heart. I pray Lord that you would move in a mighty way and give me and my fellow readers the strength to praise you in our storms. Lord you are our rock and our fortress and I thank you for all your protection. In Jesus's precious name, Amen!
