"No matter where I am, your teachings fill me with songs." - Psalm 119:54 (CEV)

When it's Been One of Those Weeks and You Don't Have Anything to Say . . .


 . . . maybe it's to teach you

That it's not about having words

Or having time

Or having it all together,

But about trusting,

And blessing.

(I've been wanting to share this Matt Redman music video with all of you who are counting!)


And,

As promised,

Though slightly delayed,

My counting from the days off I was graciously provided,

Reasons 2201-2314 today,

Because I need to keep remembering

That it's not about what's going on around me,

Or even inside of me,

But about who He is,

And that He can be trusted.

With all of it.
