straight from God's iPod...

These past few days have been a time for me to re-learn & remember that God is in control of every aspect of my day. It started Sunday, then continued Monday with my muffler. Today and yesterday, I've had some insane swelling around my eyes for no reason. I've been feeling down about this and other things, particularly those to do with applying for a 'real' job. I turned on my Panodra radio this morning and created a new station-Lincoln Brewster. The first song was one I was listening to on Monday, "Today's the Day". Okay, thanks God. You made the day and everything in it. You know it's there, so I shouldn't have to worry. Then the next song, "Enough" from Chris Tomlin. Okaaay...I think I get it, God. You are all I need. You are more than enough for everything I need. I started to think that God was behind my Pandora station, just scrolling through his Heavenly iPod thinking, "How else can I remind Laura that I am with her, looking out for her, keeping her safe & orchestrating her day the way I have planned for it to go? Ah, how 'bout I play Third Day's, "Your Love, Oh Lord"? Sounds like a good plan..."
I have no doubt that this is what He did, because the song that just ended was another Brewster tune that said God would never let go of me. Amen & thank you Lord! Keep me caught in this moment where I am held in Your arms.

Every morning praise I sing to Thee
You're slow to wrath and
Swift to bless my soul
Your love endures unchanging
O hallelujah

Cover me with Your grace
Shine on me with Your light
Take Your arms hold me tight
Keep me caught in the moment

Every night I pray myself to sleep
I look to You and plead
My soul You'll keep
You endure unchanging
O hallelujah

You've opened my eyes now
The mystery is clear to me
That in You and You alone
I find the love that sets me free

~Lincoln Brewster "Caught in the Moment"~

I love this post! I'm almost positive there are times when my itunes shuffle has been divinely the point where I'm saying "ok, God! Enough! I get the point!"
