Count it ALL JOY!

***Today as I sit and ponder the past week.... I thought of this song. It is amazing to me how God is working on our behalf even when we feel the end has come... Lord don't ever let me forget how amazing you really are.***

v.1 You dance over me, when I am unaware.
You sing over me, and I never hear a sound.

chorus: Lord I'm amazed by you, Lord I'm amazed by you.
Lord I'm amazed by you; how you love me.

v.2 You paint the morning sky with miracles in mind
My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand

chorus 2: How deep how wide
How great is Your love for me

It is amazing to me that God ALWAYS knows what we need, when we need it and exactly what moment we need it. Life has thrown a few curves this week. But God knows how to curve them in a different direction. Because HE IS GOD!

Yesterday I spent some time in prayer asking God to show me something. Anything but something. I felt I was loosing the battle over time, emotions, feelings and I was ready to throw in the towel.

I felt in my spirit god would say, "Daughter, remember you are not ruled by our feelings, your fight is not flesh and blood. You have to learn to come back with your feelings and the lies of satan with the word." I told myself "Kerri dont say it, when you say it that is what you get.... I asked myself a question--- If you knew without a doubt GOD had healed you (and your family) totally,(in every area- emotionally, mentally, physically) how would you act??? I smiled at the thought. I knew what I would do--- I would dance, I would sing, I would dance some more and so on..... I would share with anyone who would listen "HOW GREAT IS MY GOD".......

So here we are Monday ....... Trying to realize that while we wait on someone else to tell us our future---- That is nuts.... God has our future all planned out. I am still the person HE made me to be no matter what comes my way.
I was made to worship HIM.. It is my duty, it is my job and it is my privilege...

Okay- here is how God works-

Just when life got really crazy and HE already knew I would need some serious Praying Saints with me.... He sent them... They were not who I thought they would be, All I knew is after spending time together there was a connection!
~~I am so blessed by God to have a friends/family as Grammy & Gramps! Thank you for praying and standing in the gap where I didn't think I could. Thank you for loving and caring enough to make it all a matter of prayer.

God thank you for allowing me to see your hand in the middle of a thorn bush. MAY I COUNT IT ALL JOY.......To watch you work your miracle in my life, my husband and my childrens life today......

~~After sitting here and thinking of the last week, and the turmoil, and frustration and wondering how is this going to work, God you said BE STILL- I am in awe of HIS WONDERS..... He reaches us however He has to I am convinced... ~~

**Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. Ephesians 3:20

**For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, agaisnt the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm. Ephesians 6:12
