He Knows.

"My people will abide in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places."
 Isaiah 32:18

"Throughout the day today, pause in busy moments and remind yourself that you need only to be consumed by Him.  Not the carpool line, the endless to-do list, the dishes, or whatever is distracting you.  Ask Him specifically to focus your mind on Him, and ask Him to make Himself bigger in that moment than everything around you."

--Words above are by Angie Smith in Mended.

I posted the above on day eleven and I'll just be honest with you that the "whatever is distracting you" is the amount of throw up I've had to deal with lately.  I needed to be reminded to specifically focus my mind on Him and to ask Him to make Himself bigger in that very moment.  That's an Isaiah 32:18 home--that no matter what is going on.  No matter how many unplanned baths we have to have a day, Jesus is bigger.  He is Lord of our home. He is Lord of my heart.  Today, breathe deep.  No matter the circumstances, He knows.  I find deep rest and peace in that, don't you?
