Cast Up A Highway



God Reminded Me

Posted on February 14, 2014 at 6:35 AM

Yesterday, I stepped back for a moment, and saw myself like a little mouse running here and there gathering a days' worth of stuff; feeling the pressure to get accomplished all that needs to be done before. . .

Life gets so busy and sometimes I am guilty of forgetting ‘little things’, like to say please, and thank you, and sometimes to just stop for no reason and say, “I love you”. Seems time has sped up and there’s less of it for all those things I need to do; just thinking about it brings stress. . . God stopped me right there and shone His light on my thoughts and actions; I realized that those ‘little things’ are not little at all, it hit me square in the face.

I am a living breathing real child of God, not some robot designed to get things done. My reason to be here~ what is it? Looking into my husband’s eyes sparkling with a light of love and joy, listening to my grandson speaking excitedly telling me of his life, or my other asking heart-searching questions about our wonderful God, or my kids showing their love, sharing their life~ the reality speaks plainly. I’m not here to accomplish big jobs. God created me Oma, Mom, and Wife. These are my purpose; this is where my heart shares and teaches the love of God first and most importantly.

Do I also have a ministry? Yes. But in seeking God deep in my heart, I see Him smiling as He opens my eyes. He is first, and I continue to trust, honor and seek His face.

Psalm 46:10(NKJV)

Be still, and know that I am God;

Then the focus is on being the best wife possible. Allow God’s mighty love to flow through my relationships with family and friends. Rest in Him. Be still. No need to be a scurrying bunny captured by all that “stuff” of the world.

Sometimes I just need a talking to, and God is so good to come through for me: "Holy Spirit indwells you for a reason, Mary, listen to Him! Follow His lead. Rest in Him. Obey Him. Life can be sweet with a lot less stress!"

Do you have these awakening moments with God too?

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.

Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!

Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:

Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.

Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
