Crowne Plaza and God

Crowne Plaza. I went there the other night. A way to picking out the path. Arrest of attention. I fought myself there. I grieved a lot. Over the pain and wounds of sin. Death and vengeance, as the law requires. But I plead God for mercy. I ask God to spare us and our children. God is anywhere. I know. But I didn't see it in the hotel room until He showed Himself in various ways. Gideon Bible. Worship.net television messages. God's messages were right there. Exactly for us. Not another ounce of strength i had but I was filled. Saved from violence, destruction. Replaced with peace, forgiveness, grace. God was there in Crowne Plaza.

"For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight ... Surely you desire truth in the inner parts, you teach me wisdom in the inmost place ... Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me." (Psalm 51: 3, 4, 6, 10-12)
