New Direction

Psalm 40:3 He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed.They will put their trust in the Lord. NLT
I have a song going through my head (and it’s not even mine) “there is no place I would rather be, there is no place I would rather be, there is no place I would rather be, than here in your love, here in your love!” The words just have to be repeated because there are no words that can sufficiently describe how it feels to feel the love of God. That’s the feeling I’m feeling right now! I feel His love. It’s not just a general love, like “God so loved the world”, but a specific “I know everything about you and it’s okay, I’ve got this great plan for you and I’m so excited that we get to go on this journey together” kind of love. I see it reflected in my marriage, so in ways I can grasp it, yet it surpasses even that! 
As I read through the scripture again, I understand being in His love can only result in praising Him and praising Him leads to being in awe of Him, and when all of who God is and what he has done squishes itself into my tiny brain – aha!!! – I can put all of me out there into His hands.
Thank you, Lord, that you even now are at work in our lives. Not because of impatience or frustration with us, but out of love and excitement. I picture you dancing and shouting when one of your children finally gets it! And this child is dancing and shouting with you!
