Sitting in the lap of God!
- Today, I am thankful for God's Truth: Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, "He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from the beginning" (NIV). Today, I am sitting in the lap of the One who "has made everything beautiful in its time." In His lap, I am awakened to the value of all our life's experiences--they have been "written in His book" (Psalm 139: 16). Our God takes our pain and makes something beautiful out of it...."before one of them came to be" ... each and every time!
- Today, I can "shout for joy and gladness; [... for] 'The LORD be exalted, who delights in the well-being of his servant" (Psalm 35:27). I am sitting in the lap of my dream maker! After a life-time of silently dreaming, yet, silenced by fear, today, I am boldly stepping into the gift He has given me, the same gift He offers you--He makes our dreams come true even when we are afraid to believe! He delights in the well-being of his servant!
- I am thankful I can "walk in the light of [His] presence" (Psalm 89:15). When my fears darken the path, His very presence will light my way.
- When confidence is shaken, God reminds me that "He will not forget me!" (Isaiah 49:14-15
We are not in this life alone--we are loved by our Heavenly Father who could no more abandon us than "a mother [could] forget the baby at her breast [or] have no compassion on the child she has borne" (Isaiah 49: 14-15). Our Heavenly Father knows our hearts, He loves us, and wants to lead us to His "springs of living water" (Rev. 7:17).
Today, take the time to sit in His lap. Make time to discover the Truth of God's heart.....for yours!
