Oh, I've heard a thousand stories
Of what they think You're like
But I've heard the tender whisper
Of love in the dead of night
(Good Good Father - Chris Tomlin)
As we sang those lyrics at church yesterday morning I was reminded of something that happened early last Friday morning. First of all let me explain a little bit of what's going on in our lives. As you know, Pappy got hurt back in February of this year. His foot/ankle hasn't healed properly and is still giving him problems. We aren't sure at this point what the future holds for his employment, so needless to say I went to bed Thursday night a bit anxious from what he learned at his doctor's appointment that afternoon. At 1:00 on Friday morning, I woke up and IMMEDIATELY these words popped into my mind:
I knew it was part of Proverbs 31, but didn't know the exact verse so I got out of bed to head to the living room to look it up. Before I could even get out of the bedroom, another verse came to mind:
For I know the plans I have for you, says the .
They are plans for good and not for disaster,
to give you a future and a hope.
I sat down in the living room and started jotting all of this down in my journal and found that the first verse is Proverbs 31:25. As I was writing yet another verse came to mind, so I had to look it up.....
He spoke to my anxious heart in a way that only He can do.
