When I find myself

Sometimes I feel like my world is crashing around me, now, I realize that it is not completely true. I know that my world is no where near crashing. The truth is that we can all expect a little rain now and then. 

I found myself whirling this morning.  Thank the Lord I did go to the gym (because that always helps).  It was like a one-two punch before I even hit the door at my job.  Oh boy.  Didn't sit down, another jab.  That's the way it is sometimes.  I know it.  It's like that for everyone.  I'm not alone.

I've got a student that is on my heart so much, I can barely breathe, I know that God will handle it all, my job is only to submit to Him in this situation, get on my face before Him, He will prevail.  Love is always the answer.

When things in my life gets crazy, I really only have one answer.  Retreat.  I can't always run to a quiet place, however, I can turn on some music that will soothe my soul. Thankful I always have my bible in my car, brought my lunch.  Going to eat and read at lunch.

Hillsong United's new album 'Aftermath' was released today, I had it on pre-order, its on its way to me.

But this song, Like an Avalanche, wow.

I can't get to Youtube now, but read the lyrics.

Psalm 18:2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold

Like an Avalanche - Hillsong United
Beautiful God
Laying Your majesty aside
You reached out in love to show me life
Lifted from darkness into light

King for a slave
Trading Your righteousness for shame
Despite all my pride and foolish ways
Caught in Your infinite embrace

And I find myself here on my knees again
Caught up in grace like an avalanche
Nothing compares to this love love love
Burning in my heart

Saviour and Friend
Breathing Your life into my heart
Your word is the lamp unto my path
Forever I'm humbled by Your love
Take my life
Take all that I am
With all that I am I will love You
Take my heart
Take all that I have
Jesus how I adore You

And I find myself here on my knees again
Caught up in grace like an avalanche
Nothing compare to this love love love
