Sing to the Lord, O you saints of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name. For His anger is but for a moment, but His favor is for a lifetime or in His favor is life. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.Psalm 30:4-5 (Amplified Bible)

I just need to take a minute to give my God praise for all the things that he has done!  As you may see in my previous post, I wasn’t feeling so great late last night, but today has been a great one all the way through.  I still need Him more than anything, but I’m happy to know that he’s making a way for me — despite my current situations.  I’m most happy that I was simply able to enjoy the day… a day that He made!

I really enjoyed service at church today… that means alot because I’ve had a difficult time at my church in the past several months.  But this is the second Sunday in a row of really encountering God in our service.  It was like he’s showing me that NOTHING can stop him… and confirming that I can trust him for everything.

I’ve recently had some major financial setbacks, but I’m seeing God increase my favor to match what I’ve lost… he’s still making a way for me.  It’s tough right now… but God’s grace is sufficient!  I have what I need, get where I need to go, and it’s all according to HIS goodness.  I’m looking at my heart… and the very prayer that I’ve prayed “Lord, give me a clean heart… change my very desires so I want what YOU want” — God has been doing just that… quietly… I’m not running out after the things I used to just about break my neck to get to!

Lastly, I want to give special thanks to my new friend Nate.  I was hired to take pictures for his debut concert, but I was BLESSED by the event.  This is the second time I’ve walked away from this man’s pressence having a God encounter… and we’ve only met twice!  I really appreciate it when someone allows God to speak out of their life and into mine– and this not with mere words, but with a lifestyle that is pleasing to the Lord.

I Love God… and I’m happy to be called a Son and a Friend.
