I don’t even have two seconds to be on the computer this morning but wanted to pop in and share one single verse that got me going this morning:
“Do not take your word utterly from my mouth, for I wait for your ordinances”..
I’m going to be real honest and say that my brain has felt numbed after the intense time of writing I’ve just completed on my book. In fact, I wondered if God would grant me anymore insight – ever.
I’ve been reading in Psalm 119 and the heartfelt plea of the writer (who theologians believe was probably a priest) resonated with me. I’ve been asking God to revive and renew my heart. To help me move on to fresh wonders in His word. And most importantly, to never have a stale faith.
What occurs to me is that when those insights return after a wait, they are far more precious. The important thing is that we are indeed longing for those words to come and not walking away in impatience. I’ve been looking for God to flood my heart again, and in this past week, He’s reminded me of his lovingkindness and willingness to pour into the spirits of those of us who are tenacious with His commands. I for one will not let go until He blesses me.
He does. Over and over.
And I praise Him.
Yes, indeed, we praise Him in the waiting and anxiously anticipate what He has in store. Always to be more of Him, we can be guaranteed that! Thank you for these insightful words today. I hope He refreshes your soul with His love and power! Love, Amy
I am so glad you hopped on here this morning and for sharing that verse!
I am not letting Him go either!!
Have a great weekend.
Amen, friend. Holding on to Him with you and looking to Him alone for a fresh work.
Praying for you, sweet friend!
I understand how you feel… Thanks for the post :)
Waiting with great anticipation as to what is ahead…
Bless you dear.
A word from the Lord is always so sweet. Nothing quite hits the spot like it, does it?
This speaks to me, Lisa. I, too, never want my faith to be stale. I know we can’t live on the mountaintop, but just let me walk beside you, Lord.
