March 10, 2010 - Refuge & Jeremiah 29:11

I felt like I was going crazy last night and went outside for some fresh air around midnight. Jesus brought a song to mind that I've really loved for a long time, and I wanted to share the lyrics with you:

I take my refuge in the palm of Your hand

I take my comfort in Your perfect plan

I take my sorrow and lay it down at Your feet

I take my refuge where I can be free

I take my shelter in the shade of Your wings

I take my pleasure in the hope that You bring

I take my weakness to the foot of the cross

I take my refuge where I can get lost

In You, Oh Lord, In You, my God

When there's nowhere to turn

And there's nothing that's true

I find my peace here in You

(My Refuge, Sonic Flood)

Right now I don't know if one bit of this song can be said truly about my spiritual walk. It's all stuff that I know is true in my head, but I have a really, really hard time knowing it's true in my heart.

When I posted yesterday, I was writing in desperation. Please forgive me for that desperation, and know that I've asked God to forgive me too.

Jeremiah 29:11 says, "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Sometimes I don't believe a word of it. But it's all true. And I need to believe it - I want to believe it.

Thank you so much for all of your prayers and encouragement in light of Greg's recent rejection. We've been very blessed by all the support we've received! This has been an interesting week for us.

We just found out that Greg's biopsy showed that he's having a level 2 rejection. Thankfully it was caught early enough that he doesn't have to be admitted to the hospital right away. Starting today
