"Thus says the Lord: Heaven is my throne, And the earth is my footstool. Where is the house that you will build me? And where is the place of my rest?"

I can forget how incredibly awesome is our God!  I can get so caught up in my own things and completely think that my problems are all there is to this world! My daughter Stephanie had a really hard time getting through algebra, she took it 4 times, and only got by with a 68. We thought that she would never be a math student, and oh, that would be her lot in life! The uncalled for frustration I went through trying to help her understand it!

Now that she is in 10th grade, she has an 85 average in geometry, and hasn't failed one test., but at the times we got all bent out of shape, when we should have rested in the fact that passing algebra was not the end of the world. {I must say I am glad it's over} Sometimes I did rest, until I started to help her, and she got confused. Why did I get lost in the everydayness of life and forget about the more important things? Teaching her to be calm and in control would have been a better lesson for her to learn.

God is so beyond our minute by minute frustrations. Just in case we ever forget this He has given us the stars. He has given us spacious mountain ranges that seem to go on endlessly. He has planted a lot of us by the ocean, so we can get some idea of the vastness of who He is. He is the "with us" God. I may never fully understand this, but I'm just glad it's true!

"Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice!
"Fixing our eyes on Jesus, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross despising its shame and sat down at the right hand of the Father on high."
