Word Filled Wednesday ~ El Shadday

I'm glad it's Word-Filled Wednesday today and I'm linking up with Christy of Critty Joy.

It's been a crazy week for me. I wasn't even online yesterday which is very unusual for me. I live in the desert of Arizona and right now I feel like I'm in the need of some refreshment. Where do I turn?

I've been studying Ann Spangler's "Praying the Names of God" with Jill of Forever N Ever N Always. It's interesting that our focus for this week is God as El Shadday.

I snapped this photo on one of my long walks in the desert. Since we've had more rain than usual for Phoenix, the desert is beautiful.

When I'm weary and in need of refreshment I need to remember that I can rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

El Shadday is my refuge and my fortress in times of trouble and uncertainty. When I don't know where He will lead me next, I need to and obey.

I'm thankful for El Shadday on this Word-Filled Wednesday.

What a beautiful desert scene and the perfect verse of EL SHADDAY! Not only is the desert in bloom, but so are you and once more return to your theme!

May you be refreshed in Our Refuge and Fortress, and may El Shaddai empower you as He refreshes you!

Wow. I really like that photo. So you live in the desert. I can't imagine that. I have never been anywhere near one. But I am glad to be reminded of the Lord's refreshment to the weary ones.

Amen! And, now you have me singing... "El Shaddai, El Shaddai. El Elyon na Adonai.... We will praise & lift you high, El Shaddai..."
Love it!

Thanks so much for the 'update' on today's lunch! I knew it would be a huge blessing, for both of you, and I love the picture Kathleen posted! I sure was thinking of you both during this afternoon...

Hope you get the email working...

Hey, my daughter lives in Tempe and is going to ASU! I feel a bit closer to her having read your post. I love the cactus there!

Yes, and He makes the desert bloom! He even makes my barren heart bloom -- how great is our God Almighty!
Please see mine here.
