I know, I know. Some of you are thinking "You're just now realizing that?!" But no, I've known this for a long, long, long, long time. It's just that sometimes I know it better than others. LoL And this is one of them.
So, what's made me remember those lost marbles now? Well, I *thought* I had a post up and ready for Jewels of Encouragement... but Laury, our wonderful editor there, reminded about the post yesterday. It's a good thing she did! Although I had picked out a post for there, I hadn't actually posted it! Minor detail, don'cha think? *eye roll* I'm telling you, my marbles have long since split this joint! sigh. Thank God for Laury!
Jewels of Encouragement, I saw another one I wrote almost exactly two years ago and stopped to read it. =) I changed my mind because that post is sooooo relevant to my life right now. So very relevant. I hope you'll join me there at Jewels of Encouragement! I'm actually reading the very same passages of Scripture this week as I was 2 years ago!
And that brings me to another thing I had forgotten about...
I'm also posting today At the Well. About children. But I forget what the article is about... except that it relates somehow to children. ROFL (But really, I have a good excuse for that one--a couple months ago I preposted a bunch of articles to free up some of my time AND brain space.) So, if you're as curious as I am about what I posted about children, (insert massive eye rolling here) join me At the Well to find out. LoL--I will be there! ;-)
Something that I've been mulling over recently...
One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord and to meditate in His temple. For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; in the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock. ~Psalm 27:4 & 5
Sometimes things get topsy-turvy in life and inside me, and this verse has given me something to cling to and something to pray while I feel like I'm standing in the rain and not knowing which way to turn. As I did a little digging into these verses, here are a couple things I learned:
"...that shall I seek..." = to seek through prayer and worship
"...to behold the beauty of the Lord..." = to see God, the Self-existent One
I don't know about you, but concealed in His tabernacle, in His secret place, sounds like a wonderful place to be. Especially right now when my marbles are... well, they aren't here. LoL.
God's presence--there's nothing better.
What a rock and anchor that is to my soul!
