Hello sweet friends,
The first passage I have chosen to memorize this month, can be found in the book of Psalms…
Let all that I am wait quietly before God,
for my hope is in him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress where I will not be shaken.
Psalm 62:5-6 (NLT)
I was determined not to be late posting my Scripture passage this time. I had chosen these verses well in advance, but my plans soon fell apart.
I got sick. Severely sick. High fever, massive headache, body aches, chest congestion, cough. I haven’t been out of bed, except to use the bathroom, in days.
How apt were His words for me, chosen before the trial began…
“Let all that I am wait quietly before God…”
Waiting was about all that I could do. All of my plans were washed aside.
I worried about not meeting my self-imposed deadlines, but was reminded of His recent lesson to cease striving and Surrender to the Wave.
So I obeyed.
I let go of the worry, of the striving. I relinquished control and trusted God with the outcome. I accepted the time of imposed rest, instead of fighting it.
Then, His amazing peace washed over me.
I was able to rest knowing that not one moment escapes His watchful eye. He knows all of our struggles, dear one, and He cares deeply. He truly wants the very best for His precious children.
May you experience the wonder of His peace in your life today. You are a cherished treasure.
Blessings and hugs,
