Having time away has been wonderful. The change of scenery is especially nice. I have an amazing view of downtown Dallas from my room; check out the sunrise...When I opened the curtains this morning I grabbed my camer and scripture started running through my mind, "His mercies are new every morning" and "From the rising to the setting sun His love endures for ever.". I take such comfort in those promises and I'm learning that I can't rely on my own strenth and understanding. My daily bible reading spoke to me along these lines too...

"It is better to take refuge in the Lord
than to trust in people.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord
than to trust in princes."
Psalm 118:8-9

I'm clinging to these words and let their meaning flow over my heart and fill me up. I'm holding on to the hope God will show me the reason for the way things are going right now. I would always pray that I would glorify Christ with my life and everything I am. He's answering that prayer but in a very painful and confusing way but I can't focus on the waves crashing around me because I'll drown. My flesh is screaming for the shore but I'm in the middle of the sea in a storm. All I can do is take as much daily prayer time I can and put one foot in front of the other.
