The last two weeks have been busy but I survived. I am a homebody and would rather be here than anywhere else but everything went well with my schedule. I ended up babysitting seven times. I’m so thankful to only go twice this week. A lot of what I had planned to do was cancelled. I only taught the 5/6’s once since I’m now scheduled in March. The Keepers fellowship was cancelled, my husband cleaned the church and we only went to karate once a week instead of the usual twice. But to me, it was still busy.
This week is still up in the air. We are scheduled to go out for dinner on Tuesday for my son’s 18th birthday. It all depends on the weather. We are also scheduled to go to a friend’s house on Wednesday night. That also depends on the weather. JK’s once-a-month art class is scheduled for Wednesday morning but again, it might be cancelled. So……..who knows? God does and He will plan it for me the way that is the best.
In my Bible reading tonight I came across this verse: ……let Him do to me as seems good to Him (2 Samuel 15:26b). I thought “now there’s a verse to live by!”. He know best. He knows what is good for me. I need to just let Him do it! Lately the Lord has been showing me these little nuggets of truth in His Word. I just need to dig for them. I love His Word! I love reading it and learning more about Him. I love that He uses it to instruct me, guide me, discipline me, exhort me, challenge me. It is life!! I don’t know how Christians can be living for Him if they are not spending a significant part of the day in His Word. A 10-minute devotional is not good for growing. Just like plants that need to be water a long time so they can grow deep roots so Christians need a long time in the Word each day to grow in the knowledge and grace of our Lord!
Some verses from Psalm 119. A great Psalm for lovers of the Word 🙂
~Your testimonies also are my delight; They are my counselors.
~Your word I have treaured in my heart, that I may not sin against You.
~Make me walk in the path of Your commandments, for I delight in it.
~Behold, I long for Your precepts; revive me through Your righteousness.
~I shall delight in Your commandments, which I love.
~This is my comfort in my affliction, that Your word has revived me.
~O how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day.
Is it your meditation all the day?
