Yesterday, my daily devotion from Luke reminded me ONE thing is needful in my life - to sit at the feet of Jesus and hear His word. Everything else is a distraction that pulls me away from this base need.
On my way to work today, I heard a song by Mercy Me entitled "Move." I think those words were written for me. Take the time to view the video below.
My devotion tonight confirmed the words of the song to be true. In Romans 8:18 Paul says, "I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us."
In my last post, I wrote about closed doors, but God is telling me to look joyfully, expectantly forward, despite the fact I have closed doors in my life. I cannot conceive of a happiness so deep, a pleasure so complete, a glory so glorious that my grief here is swallowed up by it. I just have to believe it.
God, I'm trying.
Be patient with me...I'm a slow learner.
