"You are God alone..."

"You are God alone... Unchangeable... Unshakeable... Unstopable... That's what you are!!!"

Over the past month God has been showing me more of Himself. Through crises... through answers to prayer... through heartache... through immense blessings.

Tonight as I was sitting here reflecting back on my week... I am humbled by God using me. This song by Phillips, Craig, and Dean just seems to capture what is resonating inside my heart.

"You are not a god created by human hands
You are not a god dependent on any mortal man
You are not a god in need of anything we can give
By Your plan that's just the way it is...

You are God alone
From before time began
You were on Your throne
You are God alone
And right now
In the good times and bad
You are on Your throne
And you are God alone

You're the only God whose Power none can contend
You're the only God whose name and Praise will never end
You're the only God whose worthy of everything we can give
You are God that's just the way it is!

That's what you are."

It is not what I can do on my own but totally what He desires for me to do and strengthens me for. He uses me despite me and my imperfections. So many times I get consumed by all of the "trash" that I am carrying around that I forget about 'the God alone' wants my burdens to be lite! (But yet how stubborn am I to keep taking them out of His hand.)

He is the same yesterday, today, and forever! He doesn't change and neither does His Word. No matter how much our culture and world changes... GOD alone is the constant.

He is the rock in which we should build our faith upon. No earthquake can crumble that solid foundation.

He will not be stopped. His plan will go on no matter what. My little goof ups can not thwart the big picture of God's perfect plan.

As I sit here in awe of His majesty, I challenge you to go and hear this song for your self.

Worship God alone!!!

The surprising critters

Last night, on my way out of the bathroom I noticed something following me out of the corner of my eye. As I took a closer look I realized it was a huge scorpion on a rampage. Within seconds of me letting out a shriek of horror, Romeo came bounding in to rescue me from the evil villian. I didn't want him getting stung so I kicked him out of the bathroom, shut the door, and realized I trapped myself in with the evil critter. Looking for something to drop on him before I got stung, I was very thankful that I had just put a recipe book... "Friday Night Bites" in the bathroom to peruse in my spare time.

Any way with the drop of the book, the evil critter was smashed and flushed but now I am not so thrilled about walking around my house barefoot in the dark. Between the dead rat in my office closet, the centipede coming up the boy's bathroom drain, and the scorpion chasing me out of my own bathroom... What else could be lurking???
