When Dear Friends Move And You Just Want To Cry About It...

A true kindred friend is moving and my heart has been aching and I woke up to these words this morning and I remembered what I so easily forget...

"In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple..." Isaiah 6:1

"Our souls history with God is frequently the history of the "passing of the hero." Over and over again God has to remove our friends in order to bring Himself in their place, and that is where we faint and fail and get discouraged: Take it personally: In the year that the one who stood to me for all that God was, died__ I gave up everything? I became ill? I got disheartened? or__ I SAW THE LORD?...

It must be God first, God second, God third, until the life is faced steadily with God and no one else is of any account whatsoever. "In all the world there is none but thee, My God, there is none but thee.""
{My Utmost For His Highest, July 13}

When He chooses to take away, Do I see Him?

When the godliest of friends move? Do I see Him?

When sickness overtakes?

When man fails me?

Do I see Him? Do I see Him? Do I see Him?

In all that you choose for me in this life,

May I always SEE YOU, Lord. 

There is one thing that I ask You to not withhold from me...
and that is Thee.

{And look who's crawling... It only took him 11 months!! :)}
