Bible in 90 Days



45 days behind me in the Bible in 90 Days Challenge! I am now in Proverbs. This has been amazing. I have never felt so close to God. I think about him constantly throughout the day, and feel his presence and provision in my life.
I became a follower Christ in September of 2009, and was introduced to the beautiful world of Christian rock music. It is all I listen to now, and though it has only been a few months, I don’t know how I ever got along without it.
I am an avid runner/marathoner. I never venture out to hit the pavement without my ipod stocked full of praise music to fuel me. My very first run after being saved, I got caught in a thunderstorm 3 miles from my house. I started to get negative and throw myself a big pity party. All of a sudden, through my headphones came the following words
I was sure by now,God, that You would have reached down and wiped our tears away, stepped in and saved the day.

But once again, I say amen and it’s still raining as the thunder rolls I barely hear You whisper through the rain, “I’m with you”and as Your mercy falls I raise my hands and praise the God who gives and takes away.

That was the first of many experiences where I felt a direct answer from God. I got home and immediately looked up the song – Casting Crowns “Praise You in the Storm”.
Today, this song was brought to mind again as I was reading through Psalms. I got to 121:1 and immediately knew I had heard it in the same song.
I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth
I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth
What beautiful words, reminding me to keep my eyes on Him, and do His work.
