Selah's an oldie but goodie when it comes to the Christian music scene.

Their new album "Hope of the Broken World" is full of musical goodness. In addition to their own newly written songs, they snuck in a beautiful classic "Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus."

I'm gonna leave you hanging so you can feel intrigued to check them out yourselves.

Seek Me When The Sun Is Shining

Give Me every care. 
Give Me every burden.
Give Me every fear.
I stand ready to help you.
You have only BEGUN to taste of My goodness.
I am loving you all the time, but you come to Me mostly in periods of stress.
I want to teach you to live continually in My presence.
I can give you more constructive help when you are well than when you are sick,
but when you are well, you are too busy to give Me the opportunity to minister.

So I help you now in the hour of discouragement,
and I ask you to seek Me when the sun is shining and all is well again.
Now I can comfort; then I can teach. 
Now I can bless you, but then I can help you even more.

Be obedient.
I have a beautiful work for you to do for Me.

Psalm 55:22
"Cast your burden on the LORD, and He will sustain you;
He will never permit the righteous to be moved."

I'm back in America now...but I miss England already. 

But alas, absence makes the heart grow fonder. 

Divine Appointment

No Comments »

Well, it's that time of year again.

I'm sitting in a quaint English cottage in Cornwall, England at the moment. It's pouring rain outside and I can hear it through the windows. It is perfection here. I could live here for the rest of my life.

Creationfest starts on Saturday. I am sooooo excited to see all the awesome things God is going to do this year! God has already showed His hand. Today, we went out to a small town called Padstow. This was the same town where Briana and I had met a woman last year who tugged at our hearts. She was supposed to move away in January to marry a man she really shouldn't have married. Randomly throughout the year, I would remember her and pray for her. But strangely, I never once thought to pray that God would have intervened and stopped the wedding plans. Briana made a mention of that today, and immediately I started praying that it would have been the case.

When we got to Padstow, we booked it to the insurance place where she worked. After about a minute (only!) we saw her! Talk about a divine appointment! She didn't have time to stand and chat at that moment, but she told us when she would be off of work. We went back and exchanged facebook info and phone numbers later. So cool to see how God worked that out.

Lord, please use me as an encouragement to this woman. It was Your divine appointment, now please work Your divine work in Your divine timing.
