God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.  There for we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its water roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
     Psalms 46:1-3

At work our chaplin has been camped out on Psalms 46.  To hear her talk about God's word and to read it is exciting.  Well tonight I was getting ready for bed and decided to read Psalms 46 and I got excited as I read and needed to journal my thoughts.  Well here I am once again publicly putting my thoughts on paper, rather than in my book that I put away for no one to see...or is it I'm putting my thoughts down electronically?  Anyway let me get to the point.

I have been blessed with some amazing friends who love the Lord and find their faith and strength in Him.  I have seen many of them go through some really tough things and be in tremendous amounts of physical and emotional pain.  The one thing I am amazed to see is how God is all that this verse describes;  refuge, strength, ever present help and that we will not fear.  All I can think to say is "Go God!".

Oh did you notice the Selah?  This is something we are suppose to take time to pause......   When you get done with your pause, take time to enjoy another one of my pictures from Alaska.

Be still and know that I am God;
Psalms 46:10a

I have been praying about several things I feel overwhelmed by and want to take charge of.  This morning God in His still quiet voice said "Your problem is you feel the need to be in charge.  Well you are not, I am"  I just started laughing, He was right.  A major area of concern in my life and has been for the past 20 years is the care of Kathryn.  Gene and I are looking at making some major changes in her living arrangements.  I want to take charge and not be still.  But after reading tonight this was a conformation to me that we just need to be still and know that He is God.   It sounds so easy, so why is it so hard?  I guess that will need to be a blog for another day.
