"I waited and waited and waited for God. At last he looked;
finally he listened. He lifted me out of the ditch,
pulled me from deep mud. He stood me up on a solid rock
to make sure I wouldn't slip. He taught me how to
sing the latest God-song, a praise-song to our God.
More and more people are seeing this: they enter the mystery,
abandoning themselves to God."
Psalm 40:1-3 (The Message)
If you've been reading this blog, you'll probably notice that I just recently did a blog post on this passage. But, the Lord brought me back to this passage today as I think of a friend who is soon to be going home to be with the Lord, leaving behind extended family, a dear husband and two darling little boys. As I read this passage tonight, the Lord placed a vision in my head of Him taking Sandy when it's time for her to go, standing her up on a solid rock in Heaven and teaching her a praise song to Him. I saw her surrounded by an army of angels all praising God together, with Sandy. And I am praying that more and more people abandon themselves to God because of her life and because of the peace her family has during this time.
