When God Speaks.


God is being so loud right now I had to get up and write it down.

It's thundering outside and it has the distinct sound of God moving around mountains. Every time I hear it thunder Matthew 17:21 jumps into my head.

Because of your little faith, For truly, I say to you if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, Move from here to there and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.

Which is so funny because just last week my best friend, Marci, sent Lucy a mustard seed necklace with this verse attached. Lucy asked Jesus into her heart and Marci wanted to commemorate the moment with a special gift and constant reminder to her that God is faithful you just need to have faith which she did but it was also God planting his word in my heart.

The second thing, I hear after Matthew 17:21 thunder is the song Oceans, by Hillsong United. But mostly with the line Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders. 

This has been on the radio for the past few months and I love to belt it out in the car but we've also been singing it in our Adult Fellowship class which has helped me really focus on the words. 

You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You've never failed and You won't start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

Yeah
Oh Jesus yeah, my God
I will call upon Your Name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine

The next thought that God has given me after Spirit lead me where my trust is without border is the loudest  kid version of My God is so Big, so Strong and so Mighty!

My God is so big, so strong and so mighty
There's nothing my God cannot do
My God is so big, so strong and so mighty
There's nothing my God cannot do

The mountains are His, the rivers are His
The stars are His handiwork too
My God is so big, so strong and so mighty
There's nothing my God cannot do, hey, hey

My God is so great, so strong and so mighty
There's nothing my God cannot do
My God is so great, so strong and so mighty
There's nothing my God cannot do

The mountains are His, the rivers are His
The stars are His handiwork too
My God is so great, so strong and so mighty
There's nothing my God cannot do

My God is so big, so strong and so mighty
There's nothing my God cannot do
My God is so big, so strong and so mighty
There's nothing my God cannot do

The mountains are His, the rivers are His
The stars are His handiwork too
My God is so big, so strong and so mighty
There's nothing my God cannot do

There's nothing my God cannot do
There's nothing, nothing, nothing He can't do


My kids and I have been singing this since they were born. God has been planting his word and preparing us for this moment my entire life. 




And Last these verses

Hebrew 4:16



It may look like Jesus A.D.D. but God talks to us and He wants us to listen because He created us, He loves us, He is for us, He has a plan for us, and He is always with us.

Amazingly, now that I have this out it is quiet and I am going to bed.

Fix-It Jesus.
God is bigger than this.

Oh beloved of God! This is amazing. God's best in our worst situations. My favorite line in your post is this:
"God has been planting his word and preparing us for this moment my entire life."
We often see that phrase for the good things, but even in the hardest moments God has a plan and He does prepare us.
Praying for you all from Arkadelphia.
