Psalm 94:18-19

I cried out, “I am slipping!” but your unfailing love, O Lord, supported me. When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.
~Psalm 94:18-19

God is awesome.  That's really all I need to say, but because it's me, I will take several more sentences to make that point.  God is there.  For us.  Each minute of every hour of each day.  It's the best relationship you could have.  Whether you're doubting yourself, have to repent of your sin or just to say 'I appreciate all that you have done for me,' God wants to hear it!

I especially keyed in on the last word of this scripture.  It's from the NLT edition of the bible and it says "cheer."  I do like talking to God.  It really does bring me cheer.  I feel at peace when I am done talking with God.  My face doesn't light up like Moses, but I do feel happy.  Although, when I talk to God, I do the talking...all of it.  I have been working on just sitting quietly and waiting for God to speak to me.  I'm kind of in the kindergarten phase, but I am trying!

Dear Lord, I thank you for being there for me.  Out of all the people on Earth and with all of their problems, you take time to listen to me!  Lord, please help me to listen for your voice instead of me talking all of the time.  God, I love you.  Amen
