A Storm Is Brewing

Casting Crowns has a great song out "Praise You In the Storm". Take a listen here videoed by ultimaplayer25.
Where is your storm brewing and where are you placing your faith? I will look to the hills and from where does my help come?

Yesterday proved to be an interesting day for me. After my post on the blog I walked into my kitchen and I surely felt the Holy Spirit speaking to me about a basket of junk sitting on my counter top. What was a junk basket has now become my blessing basket. He spoke to my heart to begin to put slips of paper with my "thankfulness" "blessings" on top of the junk in there. Sometimes what looks like junk in your life will become the greatest blessing to come your way and change your life.

I received a call early in the morning from a friend that was just released from the hospital with major back surgery. Her husband was being taken to the ER for testing bc he was experiencing numbness for the third time in his face. She is a tough bird, she wanted me to take her to the hospital just to be with him for a little while. She is amazing and the love for her hubby after 34 years is as if they were newly weds. My day was not what I planned but what God planned for me. It was everything I needed and more. A reminder of how precious our lives are each day.
And then I received news of a young 14 year old girl who attended one of the local high schools and she had committed suicide.

What direction am I headed in? I hope HIS direction.
Enjoy this day and Praise HIM in Your storm.

I love Casting Crowns. I even have one of their songs as the ring tone on my cell phone.
