The Love of the Lord

I love how God weaves together his word and guidance to speak faith in us no matter what we are going through. 

"For I am persuaded, neither death, nor life, nor Angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord"- Romans 8:38-39
"Now, soul, is your love not refreshed? Does this scripture not make you love Jesus? Does a flight through the unlimited plains of heavenly love not inflame your heart and compel you to delight yourself in the Lord your God? Surely as we meditate on " the love of the Lord," our hearts burn within us, and we long to love Him more." - C.H. Spurgeon
As I walk through the wilderness and mountains are stacked all around me, I will keep my eyes on you  I know you will move those mountains and bring me out into the promise land. My heart burns for you cause you burn for me. I love you cause you loved me first. 

Fear was setting in. It has been 7 weeks since my husband had a job. i don’t know how we are going to keep our heads above water. How can we keep our house and feed 12 kids (we have 13 our oldest as flown the coop) without a job!
I grabbed the kids bible curriculum and had every one turn to Exodus 13:17-22, When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them by the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near. For God said, “Lest the people change their minds when they see war and return to Egypt.” But God...led the people around by the way of the wilderness toward the Red Sea. And the people of Isreal went up out of the land of egypt equipped for battle. Moses took the bones of Joseph with him, for Joseph had made the sons of Isreal solemnly swear, saying, God will... surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones with you from here.” And they moved on from Succoth and encamped at Ethan, on the edge of the wilderness. And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them along the way, and by night in pillar of fire to give them light, that they might travel by day and night. The pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night did not depart from before the people. 
Then it hit me God will never forsake us no matter what the circumstance. He is always guiding us through situations, Day or night He is there leading us even when we can not see the end of the road. Even in this position I am in God is still in control and He will see me through to the promise land. 
So what do I do? I keep preserving. I keep pushing through and doing what God has told me to do all along. Raise my kids to the glory and knowledge of God. To leave a legacy that will further Gods kingdom in love and grace for generations to generations. To provide hope to the perishing and faith to the lost. 
Off course is where I would of found myself. In the stress of right now, I would of stopped pursuing God and started pursuing the worries of life. God comes through in our everyday life to show us His love. To give us peace through gentle whispers of bedtime stories, raindrops and rainbows. These are the moments I want to look back on and say WOW, God truly does love me!
