He's chasing me down!

Have you ever said something to encourage someone...a friend, your hubby or kids...and then just when you need some encouragement yourself, the Lord brings those very words to mind? I love how creative He is in how He speaks to me.

Just a short week before Fred came for an unexpected and certainly uninvited extended stay, I spoke at a ladies retreat. The topic was faith and how our fears affect our faith. During parts of Fred's visit, the Lord used the words He had given me to share and helped me to identify some fears in my own life. It was a great encouragement and helped me kick Fred to the curb a bit sooner, rather than later.

Earlier this week I was feeling so encouraged by God's faithfulness. No particular reason why, just feeling thankful. So when the mailman brought a bit of bad news yesterday, I was able to remember how faithful He truly is. He had prepared my heart to be able to deal with what was coming. Wow...His goodness never ceases to amaze me. My friend Patti says He is constantly chasing us down with His goodness. You would think after being a Christian for so many years, I'd be use to it, but I'm not...and I hope I never get use to it. He continues to blow me away and I love that about Him.

Thank you Lord for how you are going to work in this situation. I give you thanks and praise and will wait expectantly to see you move!


  1. Ang- my devotional yesterday was all about people need to hear about our encounters with God b/c so many doubt they will ever experience His presence. He (Blakaby - Experiencing God devo) says that's what people need to hear from us instead of our philosophies, theologies or opinions about what they should do.

    I'm always encouraged to hear how God is speaking to someone's need.

    Hugs to you!

  2. What a delight it is to read your words, Angela. God is good, indeed, and I am blessed to read about your God-sightings!
