I will praise him from the bottom of my heart; “Lord, who can compare with you? Who else rescues the weak and helpless from the strong? Who else protects the poor and needy from those who want to rob them?” Psalm 35: 10
I think these hormones may rob me from sanity!! I want to eat every sweet thing in sight. Tonight I made my mom’s recipe of oatmeal raisin cookies. They were so good, but I ate way too many! Don’t tell anyone, but I ate some of the dough too.
The Lord is the only one who can rescue us from ourselves and I’m grateful he is willing to do just that. Today I was able to support a wife who is losing her husband of 51 years. Her heart is breaking!
I saw she had Jesus calling sitting on the window sill, so I picked it up and said have your read today’s? She said no. So I read it out loud to her and it was about resting in the Lord during hard times.
It was pertinent to what she was experiencing. In moments like today it feels like my job is not a job but a ministry that gives me a deep sense of satisfaction that I’m doing what the Lord wants me to do.
I pray that I can continue to praise Him every day and meditate on His word so that I have something to offer others. I can’t offer hope and peace that I don’t first have.
My Pearl today is that in spite of my hormones I know the Lord is going to keep me close to Him as I walk through this world as His hands and feet. I have faith in Him, not in myself.
