Y is for You Alone

I have just come from an amazing retreat weekend with the women at my church. God completely filled me and fully equipped me with His Holy Spirit, armed and ready for all that is before me. I feel renewed, refreshed, revitalized and completely in awe of the greatness of our God.
Early Saturday morning, I had some quiet prayer time and was sitting in a little room at the retreat center, with big picture windows overlooking the beautiful grounds. I had just finished reading a devotional book and was starting to journal and just praying for God to break through all of life’s ‘not so great’ circumstances….I looked up and outside just as the wind was starting to pick up. As the wind blew forcefully through the trees, carrying the branches to and fro, I heard God whisper to me ‘Even the wind cannot blow without Me.’ Tears began to fall as I was immediately humbled and questioned ‘Who am I’? Who am I to question God’s faithfulness, His promises, His sovereignty over all? Without Him, I am absolutely nothing. He continued to remind me throughout the retreat weekend just how very big He is, that there is NOTHING that is beyond His reach.
For You alone are God, You alone are good.
God’s blessings to you all today!
