he fills the gap

today
is the 
fourth monday
since 
my daughter, son in law
and three year old grandson
moved to austria.

what is totally amazing
to me, 
is how 
God totally stepped in-
how he
just covered me!

yesterday,
while taking notes 
for the 
churches 
facebook page;
there were
a few things
that stuck out
for me:
my sermon journal


the main message that
really got me?

stepping into the gap.

Jesus
stepped into the gap
for us.

it got me thinking
about how truly
 faithful he is 
to me.

i was
 floundering around
after my
daughter, son in law
and 
grandson left -

i use to
babysit a
few times a week,
which means 
i now
have
 a 'gap' in
my life
since
they moved away.

Jesus stepped in.

he has filled me-
 he has given me 
all kinds of
busy things 
to see and do.

Jesus 
stepped
into the gap 
for us when
he hung on the 
cross-
and
he continues
to step in-
sometimes 
we don't even realize
we needed him to,
until he does it!

i am thankful-
for God's 
faithfulness.

he continues
to cover me,
my family
&
those i love!

oh, yes-
God 
is
great!


do you have
something you
are thankful for?
has he 'covered' you
or filled a 'gap'
in your life?

Lovely post Melody-mae. I am so glad that God is covering you and filling the gap that your lovely family left behind. I hope that they are gradually settling in over there in Vienna, and that you have got the hang of Skype by now. USE IT! It's a real Godsend when you have family living away. Hugs coming your way.

Beautiful post and rings so true in my life and all of us if we take time to think about it. Yes. Use the skype. Blessings as you discover more of the different ways He fills in the gaps for you.

yes, Jesus is standing in the gap as I write. And I love how we mortals mark time (fourth monday...).

Thanks for posting this. I needed to read these words. God has "stepped in" lately with providing me with not obvious riches or "quick fixes" that this world demands, but friends who pray for me, incredibly timed comments, articles, and now blog posts. I've been wondering where He is in some tough situations lately and He always answers. I need to remember to open my heart to hear.

It makes "gaps" so beautiful. Thank you for that perspective!

Happy seeing beautiful!
