Inspired by a friend...

This is a super, fantastic post by a friend of mine about worship:

But what really struck me from her post was this:
"While I intended to sleep on my flights, God wanted me to worship Him. Through that adoration of my Maker He brought life to my soul. He gave me pleasure in the beauty of creation. And He renewed my passion for the journey we are on and the story we are writing every day."

We haven't been sleeping much around here. Kids getting up for all kinds of reasons. But this was a great reminder to me, that although I may intend to sleep, and get my rest and renewal that way.... God may intend for me to worship Him, by getting cups of water, and heating up rice packs, and soothing fussy babies. And if I will choose to worship Him in that, then He will give me pleasure in the beauty of His creation of these little ones, and He will restore my soul and renew my passion.
Thanks, Jodie, I needed that this morning. =)

"The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters,
He restores my soul;"
Psalm 23:1-3a

"The Lord sat enthroned at the Flood,
And the Lord sits as King forever.
The Lord will give strength to His people;
The Lord will bless His people with peace."
Psalm 29:10-11

Great, great attitude you have there, which is especially needed for times like that. I will have to remember that when I am frustrated that my littlest one wont go to bed, or the middle one still wets his bed. I have so much to be thankful for, really, and should be praising God with a good attitude about taking care of my children all the time.
