I've been in the process of trying extra hard to spend time with my Lord this morning. The phone has rang 12 times; Kaitlyn has interrupted way more than that and I am weary and discouraged.
It doesn't matter how early I get up, my son beats me up, not beats me up, but is up before me.
I could easily turn off the phone, and when I did that this morning, I missed three important phone calls regarding doctor appointments for Christopher. I then had to spend another 30 minutes on hold with everyone trying to get to the people I'm supposed to be talking to.
In the midst of the chaos, giving up on a "quiet time" and putting a load of clothes in the wash, one thing rang through to my mind, my heart....my soul, and out of nowhere rang these words.....
" O' Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder, consider all the works Thy hand hath made, I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder... .Thy power throughout the universe displayed....
then sings my soul, my Savior God to thee, How Great Thou Art, How Great Thou Art..."
As much as I yearn to be studying His Word, as much as I yearn to be in the scriptures and be alone with Him, as much as I yearn to do word studies.... my heart can take comfort in knowing that He knows my heart. He knows my desires and He comforts my heart through my love and passion of song and worship.
Truly, today.... and every day, "How Great Thou Art!"
Carrie Underwood "How Great Thou Art"
