Java and a Blog

We’ve been having trouble getting a signal for cell phones and internet up here in the mountains. I’ve also struggled with the lack of my java. Then, we found a little cafe! I literally heard angels singing – then, I saw a guy at a table (as I was enjoying the sound of ” a triple chocolate coconut latte” rolling off my tongue) USING HIS LAPTOP – WIRELESSLY!!! More angels…

So, although, I have little time and battery, I get to experience two things that make me smile – a jacked-up java and a blog. Does it get any better?

Last night was very inspirational for me – any time I can worship with a bunch of teenagers is a good thing! Their passion and abandon lifts me – It reminds me…”I’ll stand with arms high and heart abandoned – in awe of the One who gave it all – and I’ll stand my soul, Lord, to You surrendered – all I am is Yours…”

Byron’s message about love reminded me again how much God really loves each one of us. I always need to be reminded of this so I can truly love others the way God does. My friends who are going through dark times need to be reminded of this, especially right now – and I pray they will feel the arms of their Father around them in a special way. We all need to feel the breath of God. Last night, we sang a song that speaks this peace to my heart – To my friend who is especially hurting today, this is for you – you are in my prayers…

Matt Redman – You Never Let Go
From the album Passion 06: Everything Glorious

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
Your perfect love is casting out fear
And even when I’m caught in the middle of the storms of this life
I won’t turn back
I know You are near

And I will fear no evil
For my God is with me
And if my God is with me
Whom then shall I fear?
Whom then shall I fear?

Chorus:
Oh no, You never let go
Through the calm and through the storm
Oh no, You never let go
In every high and every low
Oh no, You never let go
Lord, You never let go of me

And I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
A glorious light beyond all compare
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes
We’ll live to know You here on the earth

Chorus:

Yes, I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes
Still I will praise You, still I will praise You”

Even though I can’t be with you physically, know that I’m with you in my heart – keep your head up!

Peace!
