I will bless you Lord!

Today I cried happy tears as I read the word during nap time or as we Mom's like to call "sacred hour". I've read this Psalm before but for some reason today it just got me. Psalm 63:4-5 "Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips." We've been going through some hard stuff lately and I've realized that no matter what I have to bless His name and praise Him. It is the only thing that stops the lies, it is the only thing that keeps my heart alive. It is blessing Him, lifting up my hands in his name, and praising him with joyful lips. I just wept and wept and still am because He is good, He is good, He is good. Even if we didn't make it through this (which I know we will) He is still worthy to be praised! I will bless you Lord! Somebody praise Him!

Kiss from the Lord!

Today I snuck away for an hour to go to the prayer room alone! So I'm there and I'm in a complaining funk and the person leading the set starts singing about the goodness of the Lord. So I say "Lord I want to know your goodness today" then I hear someone next to me, I look and someone had put a note on my bible, it said "I'm a big fan of you" and it had $10 in it. What a kiss from the Lord! So I've been saying how I feel like all our money goes towards bills, groceries, or kid type stuff and nothing just for me. (Sounds like He's delivering me from selfishness, right?) So He gave me $10 just for me today! Anyways, it might sound small but it was HUGE for me and really touched my heart that He hears me and He wants to show me His goodness. I love the Lord my God!

Father's Heart!

Tom and I have been learning about the Father's heart lately and how every child wants Daddy's attention and longs to hear His voice, it is something God has put in us all. Perfect example my Dad is coming to town on Wednesday for one day but my heart is so excited about that one day, I can't stop thinking about how I get to see him and just talk with him face to face! Another example, the other day Samuel brought me Tom's recorder that he records his dreams on and Samuel figured out how to tun it on. So we hear Tom's voice and Samuel starts saying “da da da da da” in a really excited tone of voice. Then Trinity stops nursing and starts looking around for Dad and smiling while she hears his voice. It is such a picture of how we get excited when we hear His voice or when He is in the room talking with us!

Daddy come to us today, let us hear your voice, we love you~ your children!

Testimony of His Goodness!

So if you read my post from last night I was pretty sad, tired and discouraged. So I called a friend that is like a spiritual Papa to me and he encouraged me and prayed for me. He said something that shifted my way of thinking and I thought I'd share it with you (hopefully that is ok Father Smith). So He said "God is in a good mood today!" It just makes me laugh saying that but to really believe that God is good, is basically believing that God is in a good mood. So he also told me to thank the Lord for everything I could think of, so I did! And the Lord really showed up, I felt like I got set free and that He gave me new life today. Oh dear friends He is really Good! So The Lord was telling me, "walk in a newness today~ no deception, no lies, no despair, no fear. Only love, only hope, only joy, only peace, only truth". Time to abide again! Lets breathe the good air today... Breathe on us oh breath of God!
Love ya, Hilary
