I’m sitting here listening to this song and soaking in God’s promise to be with me.
I love knowing that the very One who created me never leaves my side; He is with me while I sit in my favorite chair in my bedroom. I’ve been thinking about my morning with my guys. They took me out for coffee at Starbucks and breakfast at Panera Bread for an early birthday treat. I’ll be 41 on Monday. We laughed as we talked about some funny things that happened this week. It was picture a perfect morning!
Now I’m feeling sad about not being with them for a few days. I fly out tomorrow afternoon to speak in Charleston, SC on Monday. I am going a day early to spend my birthday shopping with my friend, Margaret, who is going to meet me there. We are going to sleep in late, have lunch and go to the market.
It sounded fun when I planned it and I know it will be, but I always get homesick right before I leave for an event. I hate that feeling.
I’d treasure your prayers as I prepare my heart and He prepares the women’s hearts for the message He’s going share through me. I’ll speak Monday night and then fly back Tuesday.
Okay, so I am going to focus on something God just reminded me of…I get to stretch out my birthday a few extra days because when I get back we’ll go out for my birthday dinner Tuesday night!
Well, if you’re feeling like me today and just need a reminder, here is my wish for you: no matter where you are or what you are going through today, tell your heart: “He is here with me.” That is the best gift for any day!
