Psalm 119:103 “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!”
Lord, your words are sweeter than honey. This is what I was just thinking as I sat down in my plushy leather armchair stationed by my two windows. My feet are elevated on its’ accompanying ottoman and my waist down to my shins is covered by a bohemian print fleece blanket. The sky is overcast, but still bright.
I just finished eating a “carb conscious” Elevation chocolate caramel peanut nougat bar (only 2 grams net carbs!) and drinking vanilla almond milk sweetened with stevia. Both sweet treats but not bad for me. haha! I gotta satisfy my sweet teeth, after all.
I look out the windows and see the leaves turning yellow and slightly orange and burnt orange. Autumn is just around the corner and I am excited. Today the weather is only a high of 78 degrees… a major improvement in my opinion, being from the Northeast 🙂
I am thankful for having this short window of quiet. About an hour and a half of quiet before I go back to work for a bit, then work on a writing project, then help my friend move. Oh how I want to go dancing tonight! But I probably won’t make it. Too much all at once.
A bird just flew by and reminded me of how my thoughts are so quick to stray away. I was thinking about dancing and how I might be able to make it work after helping my friend move. No, I think not. I’ll need more rest after today’s long day to prepare me for tomorrow’s long day. Yes, I’ll rest. And then dance soon <3
Psalm 119:109, 112 “Though I constantly take my life in my hands, I will not forget your law… My heart is set on keeping your decrees to the very end.”
These verses are too perfect. I have been talking about and praying about this phenomenon all week. Trying to force something, take it into my own hands, accomplish it on my own time instead of waiting on God’s timing.
I know I’m not the only one. Just yesterday a friend of mine posted on facebook that he is his own worst enemy when it comes to getting stuff done. I totally understand. He’s self-employed and doesn’t have anyone to keep him accountable. As an up and coming writer, video creator and blogger, I totally get it. Thankfully, it doesn’t take much effort at all for me to blog. I love it. It comes naturally to me. I have so many words that I don’t know what to do with them. Hence this random outpouring of thoughts called my blog. Welcome. Welcome & beware hahaah 😛
1 Peter 2:3 “Now that you have tasted that the Lord is good”
I HAVE tasted that the Lord is good. All of His ways. Yes. His way is THE way. To live and to be truly free. I love talking about my freedom in Him as I choose to live for Christ day to day. I had a long, raw conversation about freedom in Christ last night. I was explaining to a friend that there is true freedom when we are living our life God’s way. It’s not freeing to choose our own way because we don’t know what’s best for us. && it’s extremely difficult to choose God’s way, but it’s His power residing within us that gives us the freedom to choose His way. Before belonging to God and being His child, I couldn’t choose His way; I was a slave to sin.
All glory, honor and praise to King Jesus for rescuing me from my prison that I was once living.
Lord I was stumbling around in the dark and didn’t know where the exit was. I was fraternizing with the wrong crowd and didn’t know how bad things had gotten. When your light flooded my life I realized what I was “living” in. You pointed out the exit and said “you’re free to go, anytime”.
“My chains fell off, my heart was free
I rose, went forth, and followed thee!
Amazing love, how can it be
that thou my God wouldst die for me!”‘
Amazing Love How Can it Be? lyrics
The Lord is good. The Lord is sweet. There is nothing sweeter than life with Him.
Hope y’all are having a great Tuesday! Take a break from what you’re doing and enjoy His creation today 🙂
