Early Morning Ponderings

As I walk the paper route in the morning I pray as the Spirit leads for the souls sleeping and waking in the homes I pass. Some I know by name, some by face, some I have never seen. The thought struck me this morning how little I think about these people if my path does not cross theirs in some shape or form. Being a very visual learner, I hate to admit, but if you are out of my sight, you may be out of mind. I need reminders here and there to remember those I love.
Pictures on the refrigerator, notes on the calendar, an item given to me as a gift all spur my mind to pray for those I love. God is not so. No one ever escapes His watchful eye. He not only knows each and every person, He created them, He sustains them. He is the giver of life. I am so in my own little world, God is HUGE. I am humbled to belong to Him.

Psalm 139:7-16 Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the dawn,

If I dwell in teh remotest part of the sea,

Even there Your hand will lead me,

 And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
If I say, "Surely the darkness will overwhelm me,
And the light around me will be night,"
Even the darkness is not dark to You,
And the night is as bright as the day.
Darkness and light are alike to You.
For You formed my inward parts; 

You wove me in my mother's womb.

I will give thanks to You, 

for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works, 

And my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.

Thank you for this.

As Greg approaches "losing his job" again season once again...I find myself in a spiritual battle.
