Seems like a one word theme the Lord is giving me lately.  I have many animated conversations with the Lord on my drive to work. I do most of the talking and He usually responds with one word, lately it is TRUST. I freely admit that I would like to be in control of all that is in my life including the desire for God to answer my prayers in the way I'd like and according to my timeline. Well, you'd think that at my ripe old age I'd have figured out that The Lord acts with HIS will not mine. I know that deep down but my will gets in the way of receiving that most of the time. When I can put my hard headed desire to be in control aside I can focus on knowing Him more and TRUST. It is incredibly freeing to let go of the control and believe that whatever happens is His will and His love and His timing and is the best possible answer/solution for me.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths..

Life has become very hectic and my soul has been craving the peace and tranquility of Selah, the name for our property and under construction cabin.
Selah has many meanings but no one clear cut definition. We have chosen to use the definition of, rest, peace and praise.
We had the opportunity to travel to our place of peace this past weekend for just one day. We arrived during a downpour and inspecting the cabin under construction found that it was raining in one part of the unfinished roof and creating a waterfall from the loft to the main floor, not a welcome nor peaceful sight. As soon as the rain let up, husband and youngest son were able to patch the roof with a tarp and scraps of wood. For good measure they also covered another part of the roof that was iffy. There were frequent stops to the project as it sporadically rained and hailed most of the afternoon.
Praise for the materials that were available to secure the cabin. Rest as the rain stopped and the sun came out after the work was done. Peace as we can depart from Selah knowing that there we experienced and will continue to rest in His shelter.

Psalm 61:1-4  
1 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.
