In the midst of it all

Wednesday of the not-so-local Vacation Bible School week, I spent some time listening to music on my ipod as I cleaned some of the junk out of my car. I was still feeling very "stalked" by God - knowing the way things had been playing out was as it should be... whether I liked it very much or not.

I'm not sure if it was because I really wasn't actively listening yet, or if He was purposefully waiting to show me. But, none-the-less, the song that I resonated with spoke to me.

Word of God speak
Would You pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see
Your majesty
To be still and know
That You're in this place
Please let me stay and rest
In Your holiness
Word of God speak

And at the end of the three hours, I sat waiting for my children. The chorus was replaying in my head, and my hands would sign a phrase from time to time. As I signed "To be still and know that You're in this place", my hands did something different. Rather than signing "here", I touched "heart".

Yes, He's in that place - my heart - pulling the weeds, shaking the dirt up again. "Preparing fields for rain". Call it what you want. I'm just grateful to know and remember that He is in the midst of it all.
