Just What I Needed

I love it when God just delights me.

My "to do" list today is three times that of last week, and while I woke up early with my mind racing and overwhelmed before I'd even got out of bed, I was convicted to SIT, to listen, and spoken directly to my heart by the Holy Spirit, "Drink some coffee."

And as I searched for a verse I'd been thinking about, my eyes settled on the passage below.

Psalm 63
A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah.

1 O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you,
my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.

2 I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.

3 Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.

4 I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.

5 My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

6 On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the watches of the night.

7 Because you are my help,
I sing in the shadow of your wings.

8 My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me.

It never gets old to know that His love is better than life.

Aaahhh, perspective.

I see you have not blogged in a few days. Probably because between having company, hosting the cutest birthday party ever, and having your head in the toilet you have not been able to muster up the time or energy. Just wanted to say I hope you are feeling better soon! :-)
