Turn your eyes upon Jesus

~Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in his wonderful face;
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace. ~

With all my heart

God is so good, isn't he? I was driving home from youth group and this song came up on the radio. I can't seem to get it out of my head. I'm glad it's stuck because what better way to spend my words than saying "I love you!" to my Lord?

Jesus, King of angles, Heaven’s light
Shine your face upon this house tonight.
Let no evil come into my dreams,
Light of Heaven, keep me in your peace.
Remind me how you made dark spirits flee,
And spoke your power to the raging sea,
And spoke your mercy to a sinful man –
Remind me, Jesus, for this is what I am.
The universe is vast beyond the stars
But You are mindful when a sparrow falls
And mindful of the anxious thoughts
That find me, surround me, and bind me
With all my heart I love you,Sovereign Lord.
Tomorrow, let me love you even more,
And rise to speak
The goodness of Your name
Until I close my eyes in sleep again.
The universe is vast beyond the stars
But you are mindful when a sparrow falls
And mindful of the anxious thoughts
That find me, surround me, and bind me
Jesus, King of angels, Heaven’s light
Hold my hand,
And keep me through this night

mostly good day =]

FUN day at work today! Got to see Rudy for the first time in a long time. Last time I saw him I was about five inches taller than him. Now I'm about two feet taller than him......? Love him to death though. =] Actually now that I think about it, that was the ONLY fun thing that happened at work! It was freezing cold, I got a huge splash of crap in my eye, Bethany wasn't there----I'll end now, lest I start to sound like the big frump that I am. =P
GOOD news! Will Farmer, a friend of mine from KY, got good news from the doctor! Last visit they told him that he had torn his shoulder from skiing and that he was probably going to need surgery. Today they rechecked it and it looks like its just a bad strain! Praise God!
Now I must go with warm food in my belly, verses to memorize, chapters to quote, room to clean.....and my brother needs the computer. Laterrrrrrrrrr!

Why so Busy?

Why are we constantly running, running, going, going, when He tells us to BE STILL!? Be still AND know that I am God.
Why do I think that I need to have all these distractions in my life when the ONLY thing I really need is Him?
Why do we plan and change our schedules around for our friends, but we DON'T re-arrange our lives for Him?
What does He want me to accompish today? Maybe I should ask Him. Maybe I should read his directions to me today. Maybe I should just hear from Him.
I know one thing he wants me to do: Be Still. Be still and know that He is God. He's MY God.
