Last night my dear friend Meredith came home from Russia where she has been student teaching since January. Jess, Amber and I decided to surprise her at the airport and be there when she came off the plane. On my way to the airport I was retained in traffic. Her plane came in at 5:30pm and as i watched the time go by on my car stereo 5:30, 5:40, 5:50, 6:00... the thoughts again started to flow. I so wanted to be there when my friend came walking off the plane. I wanted to hug her neck and catch up on the past semester. I had a choice... I could either begin to stress and get angry at a situation I could not control, or I could rest once again the knowledge of my Savior. I had my moments of worry and sadness at the possibility of missing this experience, but an overwhelming peace came over me and I began to worship.
It is in moments such as these, when the Spirit reveals to me yet again... if My God provides peace for the little moments in my life, HOW MUCH MORE will His peace surround me in times of true testing and trails.
'Then sings my soul, my Savior, God the Thee.
How great Thou art. How great Thou art.'
'It is well with my soul. It is well, it is well with my soul.'
