So small

I've been very "nerved up" lately. working on it. Making mountains out of mole hills. This morning i was listening to my MP3 player and the song "so small" by Carrie Underwood came on (I listened it about 10 times in a row), I've posted the song before, it just really rang true to my heart today.

And I've really had to listen to the voice of God the last few days in order to drown out the voice of hell whispering in my ear. In that, I was burdened (not in a bad way) yesterday to pray for someone. I don't even know how to explain it, but I was all alone in the house (Phyllis and Gibby had just left) and it almost felt like I was being pushed to my knees, so I didn't resist. I pray for that person everyday already, but it was different this time. On my knees, face buried in the carpet, praying.

Ecc 3:9-11 9 What does the worker gain from his toil? 10 I have seen the burden God has laid on men. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.




So Small lyrics

[Verse 1]
What you got if you ain't got love
the kind that you just want to give away
It's okay to open up
go ahead and let the light shine through
I know it's hard on a rainy day
you want to shut the world out and just be left alone
But don't run out on your faith

[Chorus]
'Cause sometimes that mountain you've been climbing is just a grain of sand
What you've been up there searching for
forever is in your hands
When you figure out love is all that matters after all
It sure makes everything else
seem so small

[Verse 2]
It's so easy to get lost inside
a problem that seems so big at the time
it's like a river thats so wide
it swallows you whole
While you sit around thinking about what you can't change
and worrying about all the wrong things
time's flying by
moving so fast
you better make it count 'cause you can't get it back

[Chorus]
Sometimes that mountain you've been climbing is just a grain of sand
What you've been up there searching for
forever is in your hands
When you figure out love is all that matters after all
It sure makes everything else
Seem so small

You never know what was happening in that moment you felt a strong need to pray. I love prayer... it surely is a blessing to be asked to participate in what He is already doing.

Thank God for that still small voice.
