At All Times


"O my people,
trust in Him at all times.
Pour out your heart to Him,
for God is our refuge."
(Psalm 62:8)

The days were very full last week, the time of year when we are gearing up for another school year of ministry to middle school and high school students. I have been very busy working alongside my husband, assisting with office work, organizing for the new year, attending staff meetings, and more. Also being his driver to various activities, as he is recovering from rotator cuff surgery. 

And when life becomes a bit too full, and we are in need - we can call on Him. And He will answer. My journal page was filled up this morning as I poured out my heart to Him. And I was filled up. For He is our refuge and our help.

Thanking Him for a week of His strength, His help, His gifts ...

journaling
pouring out my heart to Him
watching and listening
receiving His answers

"I am the God of all time and all that is.
Seek Me not only in morning quietness,
but consistently throughout the day.
Do not let unexpected problems distract you from My Presence.
Instead, talk with Me about everything
and watch confidently to see what I will do."
(Jesus Calling)
