God is here

Lady in Meijer:  Are you a teacher?
Me: No (inside wondering why she asked me this)
LIM:  that's a lot of snacks
Me: (as I LOL) - no I serve in a soup kitchen with friends, and I didn't have time to make cupcakes for dessert so they are getting these (insert feeling guilty here)
LIM:  They are just as good (meaning the lil debbie treats)
Me:  No, they are not, but they will like them (insert smile here as I remember how much our BH peeps love pre-packaged treats - they are easier to carry in your pocket than a cupcake)

We go on chatting about how she serves in Detroit and maybe she will serve at Blessed Hope (BH). I tell her about BH and how wonderful the peeps are there. I don't know what will happen, whether she will or she won't, but it was like God just whispered "let your heart be open, I will be glorified".

I needed to also get tortillas, I thought I had TONS in the freezer, turned out I must have used them for something :) and so I had to buy them at Meijer this morning before work.  To tell you the truth, if I didn't need the tortillas, I might have just said "forget it, they can go without a treat this one time" but I didn't really have a choice but to go to the store.

I was thinking about how God is in today.  He was in yesterday, and He will be there tomorrow (one of the many benefits of serving a living God).  He reminds me that He was there yesterday in my long day, He will be there today, no matter the circumstances what come my way.

He said "I'm here, Margie, don't forget that today".  

I'm thankful that when I need Him, He's not some idol that I carry around in my pocket, when I'm tired and weary (and teary), He carries me.

God is in today.

It's gonna be a good day!

Matthew 11:28-29 28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
