A Sunday Drive

Yesterday, Jack and I went to a birthday party after church that happened to be 45 minutes away. I love taking little trips like this. Especially when they are out in the middle of nowhere. On the way there, Jack and I rocked out to John Mayer's live album, Taylor Swift, Air Supply (yes), Hillsong, Matt Redman's "Blessed Be Your Name" (10 million times for Jackson) and even some Norah Jones. It was awesome.

On the way back home we listened to all of that again, but I really had a chance to spend some time in prayer. If you look at the picture you see that there really isn't much around me. Just trees. The open sky. And as I looked at it all, I was overwhelmed with the need for God in my life and in so many others lives right now. I wanted to tell God all about what I was thinking, but something in me stopped and I just wanted to listen. Just wait to hear what He had to say. I miss that sometimes.

And then this morning I felt really lead to read Ecclesiastes. I got to verse 5 and read this....

5:2 Do not be quick with your mouth,
do not be hasty in your heart to
utter anything before God.
God is in heaven and you are on earth,
so let your words be few.

So, that's kinda where I am at right now. I guess we just have to wait before God for us to finally see what he is going to do.

This is so amazing! So timely in my life. So worth meditating on today. I know I told you in Facebook, but I got the exact same message in my spirit this morning as I contemplated how to be okay with coming to work today. Mine came in the form of the chorus to that song taken from that verse. I immediately heard it in my mind as I "thought". But I love your blog devotional about it. It makes it even more meaningful and impactful in my day! Thank you!
