I feel like I was given an early Christmas gift today…a quiet morning!! It was wonderful to just sit near the tree with a cup of coffee and the Word of God! Nothing is in order in my home or as I look at the day before me. But it is in order in my heart and the other things do not seem so unbearable now.
Yesterday I read this in Psalm 139:
O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.
Those verses kind of stopped me in my tracks and reset my heart and mind. I feel like I have been on a non stop roller coaster ride since mid-August and the only thing I could see was the climb up another terrible drop on the ride! It was good for me to remember instead that the Lord has been there with me each step (or scream) of the way. He has understood all my fears, failures, discontent, inadequacies and struggle in our move and all its’ adjustments. And while that is not a new thought to me, He did comfort me anew with His Words yesterday. I am thankful for His Word…it is alive and and powerful; it discerns my heart and thoughts; it is my anchor, both steadfast and sure! (Heb. 4:12 and 6:19)
I rejoice at Your word,
As one who finds great treasure.
