My Heart Today

O God, thou are my God; early will I seek thee: my soul is so thirsty for You, my flesh longs for You.  I am tired and weary.  Not necessarily in a bad way.  I find even as I am Your vessel, being spent for You, I am tired, a bit weary.

Oh, Lord I have seen Your glory and Your power, I am in awe, that You would use me, us, to display just a bit of it.  Humbled to be Your servant.

As I look around and see all You are doing, and how I often fuss and fight, again, humbled, repentant.  Your loving-kindness is better than life, Lord.  It is better than life! 

Your love and handiwork is all around, woven in every single detail of my life.  As You open my eyes to see I am brought low.  How can this be?  Your loving-kindness overwhelms me.  I’m a fool, so often blind to Your goodness.

My lips shall praise You.  I will bless You while I live.  I will lift up my hands in Your name!  You alone can satisfy.  I shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips.

Oh God, when I think of You on my bed and in the night; the darkness, I remember how You have been my help.  My everything, really.  How do I forget?  Therefore I will hide in the shadow of Your wings and I will rejoice.  My soul follows hard after You.

Oh, the peace, the rest I find snuggled up under the shadow of Your wing.  I am a child, safe in her Papa’s embrace . . . just now, as I was typing, my door opened and in walked my Elijah, my baby.  He came for his morning snuggle.  He climbed on my lap like every other morning and melted right into me.  What a gift.  A perfect picture of what I feel like this morning, sitting in the arms of the One who loves me most . . . Yes, I am bawling Winking smile

Just sharin’ my heart today.  May you know the Love and ‘care’ of Your Father this day.

He is my everything as well. I praise God that He is bigger than anything I face. I know you know that as well!
