Strength for the day...

Reuben had me up at his standard ungodly-early hour this morning (5:30).  Usually, I lay in my bed, and he joins me or lays in some blankets beside my bed, and I try to convince him to lay quietly enough that I can doze for another half hour or so.  We didn't do that today.  Today is The Day.  The Day I have to finish all the packing, mine and the kids and Tim's, so that we can all leave tonight.  The Day I still have to somehow fit in a visit to the church office to take care of my responsibilities there.  The Day I have to drive six hours to Michigan with the kids in our van, and hopefully with one of my sisters if not both to help keep them under control, and even more hopefully that they end up sleeping most of the way since we won't be leaving till 6pm.

The Day that I actually remembered to turn to prayer when I started feeling anxious while I was yet in my bed thinking about all the things I had to do today.

God brought to mind the song "Always Enough" from Casting Crowns that I've been listening to lately.

"In a dry and weary land
Lord, you are the rain...

Your love is peace to the broken,
faith for the widow, hope for the orphan, strength for the weak
Your love is the anthem of nations, rings out through the nations
And you're always enough for me"

Today I want to remember that when I'm dry and weary, He is the rain that brings refreshment.  Today, when I'm tired and weak, He gives strength.  Today, when I'm going out of my mind with craziness and packing, He is always enough to get me through it to the other side, and He's drawing me closer to Him.

I remind my soul to sing,
"I rejoice for my Savior reigns
I rejoice for He lives in me
God on high, He has set me free
And worthy is the Lord."

He reigns.  He lives in me.  He has set me free.  He is so worthy of all my praise. 

Even when I'm crazy busy packing.
