It’s been more quiet here on the blog than I’m comfortable with because life is noisier than I’m comfortable with.
Today is the final push to get our house perfect so that we can list it with a real estate agent tonight at 5:15pm. No pressure, right?
The last week or so has been exceptionally stressful. I have felt like I was being squeezed by a boa constrictor. Just when I thought I couldn’t take one more thing, one more thing would pile on my shoulders. I know you know what that’s like.
At times it feels like all I do is cry out to the Lord for help, but I’m so wrapped up (literally!) in the pressure that I don’t always listen for his response. He does respond.
For instance, I noticed (after the third time) that the same song was playing when I asked for prayer after our Tuesday noon worship session. The words from Meredeth Andrews’ You’re Not Alone kept being sung over me. I know I’ve heard the song before, but for some reason I didn’t need to hear it as much as I have lately. It’s now on my i-pod and listened to daily…sometimes hourly.
You’re not alone for I am here, let me wipe away your every fear
My love I’ve never left your side I have seen you through the darkest night
And I’m the one whose loved you all your life
All of your life
Sometimes we need a gentle reminder when life feels like it’s on the spin cycle. When we cry out to the Lord we can be sure he hears us. Listening for his response is a whole other story, but I can promise you is he responding. Take a moment today to listen for His holy response.
You’re Not Alone

Last Friday was a day that I felt like I was in the spin/wring/turn in side out/and then slowly rip apart cycle. It was not pleasant… for me or anyone that was around me. And even though we had a great weekend I felt some anxiety about waking up this morning and having the kids by myself again today. I am going to keep the lyrics to the song you blogged up on the screen and read them often today. Needing to keep my ears tuned in to Him and not allowing the chaos to overtake. Thanks again Nic.
I’ve been praying for you. Hope your week got better.
Thanks for the encouragement Nichole. I’m taking a break from facebook and I don’t think I have your email. I’d love to have it. Praying that you have peace during your house sell/move!
Thank you for the prayers! I’ll email you privately with my info so I don’t get bombarded with spam. Can’t wait to hear how things are going!
