One of my favorite songs is Need You Now by Plumb and the chorus goes like so:

How many times have you heard me cry out
“God please take this”?
How many times have you given me strength to
Just keep breathing?
Oh I need you
God, I need you now.

There was a time not long ago that I was feeling down, depressed and a little worried.  Okay, a lot worried.  This song played over and over in my head and I sang it to God through tears so many times I couldn’t count.

On my way home from church this evening, this song came on the radio and I was reminded of pouring my heart out to my Father through this song.  The funny thing was, I couldn’t remember why.  What had I been so worried about?

Now, as I’m writing this post, I remember what it was, but it took me awhile to think of it.  Not because I’m getting old, I’m sure!  But because my God is bigger than anything I could possibly go through.  I clung to Him and He delivered me from my worry!

I encourage you to cling to Him!  The chorus to this song is so powerful.  Use it as a prayer, say it (or sing it) earnestly to Him and see how He moves.  I love when my children come to me.  How much more does God love it when we come to Him?

“To every thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven” – Ecclesiastes 3:1

Did you know:
the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days;
those of the canary in 14 days;
those of the barnyard hen in 21 days;
The eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days;
Those of the mallard in 35 days;
The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.
(Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week!)

Thus, the Lord in His wonderful grace can arrange the life that is
entrusted to His care in such a way that it will carry out His purposes and
plans,  and will be fragrant with His presence.

Only the God-planned life is successful.  Only the life given over
to the care of the Lord is fulfilled.

I received the above email this week and, again, was very impressed with the power of God and his perfect plan.  If God takes such good care of the world He created, just think of the way He wishes to care for you.  He loves you and wants His perfect plan for you.

A woman’s life can be a whirlwind of laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning, dish washing, cooking, errands to be run, kids to taxi here and there, bills to pay and an 8 to 5 on top of all that.  Shew!!!  Where do we find the time?  Amidst this craziness, it’s easy to worry, to fall into the mentality of “What are we going to do?  Is there any hope?”  Please remember, Girls, that God is always there … He never changes (Hebrews 13:8) … He never moves.  It’s our worry that moves us away from Him.  And so He instructs us in Matthew 6:25-34 not to worry.  Why?  Because He wants us to be close to Him and enjoy a fulfilled life in Him.  He wants to clothe us more than the lilies of the field and feed us more than the birds of the air.

Move closer to God by diving into His word each day.  Gain so much encouragement from Him that worry has no place in your lives.  Take each day as it comes and hand it directly over to God.  And in all things, praise Him and give thanks.

Read the passage, share it with the girls, bless and be blessed.
