Rockin’ with Granny

When I got out of bed this morning, this is what the reflection in the mirror looked like……ahhhhh not so hot.

That is what I get for staying up way past my bedtime and going to concerts…….HOWEVER, the concert was fantastic…..If you get the chance make sure to go to the Rock and Worship Road Show.

 It was so worth looking like a scary monkey in the morning, to be surrounded by people who love Jesus….to meet together to worship him.

I went with a couple of friends, and next to us were sitting the two most adorable older ladies, they were so into the music it was fantastic….I started taking pictures of them, because they were so into this concert….Granny was rockin’
However, there was this one band, and well……they were LOUD and hard to understand, and maybe I am old….but my ears really hurt while they were playing. 🙂  But the granny section didn’t like them very much either, and whe we looked over this is what we saw…….
The band was too loud for granny!  It made me smile to see her enjoying a concert like this….even if she didn’t like how loud this band was.  I think I enjoyed watching her as much as the whole show.  When the concert was over and I made my way out of the parking lot…..I was pondering some of the lyrics to a song by Mercy Me, it’s a song that I have heard a million times, but last night I heard it with new ears.
Surrounded by Your Glory, what will my heart feel?
“Will I dance for you, Jesus?
Or in awe of You, be still? 
 Will I stand in Your presence, or to my knees will I fall? 
Will I sing ‘Hallelujah!’?
Will I be able to speak at all?
I can only imagine! Yeah! I can only imagine!
Doesn’t it make you wonder what we are going to do when we are in the presence of Jesus?  My tiny human mind can’t even begin to comprehend the majesty of his presence.  It makes me eager for heaven, to see with new eyes the  things that I can’t understand while here on earth. 
 I know how much more I anticpate being with my Lord.  To spend time with him, and with those that I love that are waiting for me: my grandparents, friends, my sweet Ireland, and the baby I lost before it had a face….I wait in anticipation for the day when I get to meet my babies, face-to-face. To funally understand the reasons why, and to see the finely woven tapestry that is my life…to see the whole picture of God’s purpose for my small, yet carefully planned life.
Three verses came this morning as I was doing my quiet-time. 
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”  
 Romans 8:28
“Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us froma guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.  Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.”
Hebrews 10:22-23
“God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would we be made perfect.”
 Hebrews 11:40
I will cling to these promises, knowing that God has started a good work in me that he will see to completetion.  He will use this time of unknowns to reveal his perfect plan and purpose for my life.  If I never understand why until heaven, that will be ok, because I know that he sees the the whole picture, while I only see in part.  I am so glad that I am not the one in control of my life.  Because what he plans for me is so much better that what I could ever accomplish alone.
