Mighty Ways

Mighty Ways

I've had some pretty weighty "joy" moments the last few days, so today I will just share one of the simple things that brought me delight today.

I woke up with a song playing in my head. That happens frequently, but this is neither a song I listen to a lot or a song that I would consider a favorite. I don't know how it it planted itself there, but I know the lyrics were just what I needed.

Last night was a struggle. A few days ago, I wrote about my BIG BREAKTHROUGH fundraising idea for The Global Scavenger Hunt (!!), but it turns out the logistics are not as straightforward as I'd thought. Basically, it cannot go as envisioned. So I've been sorting through variations of the plan, all of them coming up short of ideal. This is stressing me out. I don't know what to do; time is closing in on us; I am afraid it's all going to fall through. Ideas were playing in mind as I fell asleep, way past my bedtime. 

So, when the lyrics I woke up with were: "God is on the move, on the move, hallelujah, God is on the move in many mighty ways," it was actually a huge comfort. And my devotional reading was about trusting and being thankful. I felt some of the burden be lifted away... 

and THEN, many hours later, when I sat in my car for the first time all day and turned on the radio, the first song that played was that one. 

I just love it when that happens.
