God signs

Last night I was in bed, and I just felt this great urge to look up Psalm 27:3. I believe these are the times that God speaks to me and though the voice isn't audible like in great movies or the bible, I believe it's Him.

So, I whipped out my cell, and tried to pull up my bible app, to no avail, and thought about aborting mission. I did not however, and I'm glad. Google was handy, as usual, and here is what Psalm 27:3 said...

"Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident."

Can I get an AMEN on that one?!

Sometimes you just need a sign. I ask God all the time for BILLBOARD signs because I've told Him, my loud mouth will make me miss a whisper! Thankful that He puts up with me!

I'm very excited this week to be traveling to see some friends and end up with some great friends at the National Youth Workers Convention in Nashville. Along the way I'll be stopping in Little Rock to see the Criners and their new pumpkin, Owen, then it's off to Memphis, where I'll get to meet my Kindred Spirit, Andrea, for the first face to face time!!! Love meeting bloggers! While in Memphis I'll stay with my sweet friend, Heather, who I've known since 6th grade and finally get to meet her cuties! Then it's off to Nashville for the conference with some of my favorite people, Jake, AJ, Kristi, and Michelle! Should be fun! Wish me safety traveling and I'm sure I'll have fun things to report!!
