On Friday, a few hours prior to arriving at the She Speaks Conference, I wrote a post for The Gypsy Mama’s Five Minute Friday. In my post, I shared the song “Going Through the Motions” by Matthew West. I heard this song a few years ago for the first time during a season in my life when the Lord was teaching me this important lesson.
Fear will leave you empty…faith will fill you up.
After writing Friday’s post, I drove the last couple hours to the conference. I arrived in Concord, NC and as I approached the conference hotel a song began to play on the car radio. Can you guess what the song was? Yep, it was the Matthew West song I blogged about a couple hours earlier.
Now fast forward to Sunday afternoon. This beautiful conference ended and it was time for me to head home. I said my goodbyes, packed up my car and pulled out of the parking lot. My car radio was on. Can you guess what song began to play as I left Concord, NC?
After this happened, I couldn’t help but think of Psalm 139. God knows us so well. He is a part of every detail of our life. He knows when I arrive. He knows when I leave. When I pulled into Concord, NC…He was there. When I left Concord, NC…He was there. And, I have no doubt, He was there during the in between time as well!
I’m an open book to you;
even from a distance, you know what I’m thinking.
You know when I leave and when I get back;
I’m never out of your sight.
You know everything I’m going to say
before I start the first sentence.
I look behind me and you’re there,
then up ahead and you’re there, too—
your reassuring presence, coming and going.
This is too much, too wonderful—
I can’t take it all in! (Psalm 139: 1-6 Message)
