Oh dear

My husband has a knack for calling me at 10pm and talking about everything that is going on in our lives...the good, the bad and the ugly. And if you know me you know that I am NOT a night owl, I'm pretty much a pumpkin around 9 or 10 o'clock and I can't function like a normal human being should. Soooooooooooo he was going on and on about changing this, doing that, and most of these things mind you are pretty BIG decisions so of course my blood pressure increases and I start "dancing" right along with him in these talks. When I should be leaning on the Lord and like my last post said remembering that these are not flesh and blood wars but these are spiritual wars. Well after a fitful night sleep I awoke around 5 AM and starting praying. I think He is the one that wakes me up so early, to pray, to seek His face, to be still before Him.

Now I am awaiting the next "battle" so I am carrying around with me Ephesians 6:12 and Psalm 18:2-3. Because He is my refuge, my shield and my stronghold. How can I be an affective witness to my husband if I am tossed to and fro by every ripple or current that comes my way?

Be still, and know that I AM. (Psalm 46:10) ~ Jesus

I always have a tough time with the "Be Still" scriptures. It's so much easier to get caught up in the busyness and harried lifestyle prevelant in our society. I have a hard time being still for 5 minutes with God...and I think we need more to really quiet down and hear Hs voice. Great blog today!!
