Roller coaster

I am so thankful for the psalms and the depth of emotion that is in them. I read this earlier this morning and it put into words how my heart feels over an emotional roller coaster that I have been on for some time now. I am so thankful that God knows how we are formed, He made us, He knows us better than we do. Even if how we feel is not accurate...He knows. He sees that we are clay and weak in this skin. I am longing for His glorious appearance, when He will come and rescue us and wipe away every tear. I long for our heavenly kingdom. Until then, I thank Him for His word. I am so glad that I can come and have a fit before Him and that He loves me still. I thank God for the raw emotion that David so often expressed to his God. So often we think that we can't express our anger and hurt to our God but I think we are the safest when we spill out our hearts to the God who see's us anyway. He is our El Roi.

Psalm 13
For the director of music. A psalm of David. 1 How long, O LORD ? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and every day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me?
3 Look on me and answer, O LORD my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death;
4 my enemy will say, "I have overcome him," and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
5 But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing to the LORD, for he has been good to me.

Girl, I am with you! I can't wait for Jesus to come and get us out of here! I think about it all the time. It is kind of a hobby for me to daydream about the rapture and what heaven will be like. I think it will be soon, I really think it will be soon!s

Love you sweet thang!!! when I feel like this, I am reminded that we will not be greater than our master...and they treated HIM so badly..and thinking about Heaven is the sure way to get over the hump and be an overcomer. Girl we are just not home here..but one day girl we (you and I ) are going to get our dance on in heaven..high jumping without the trampoline! LOL :)
