ThE eNd Of A gOoD tHiNg

I have mixed feelings about finishing Bible studies. Especially when it's one as good as the one I just finished. It's always bittersweet~I miss the lessons learned from a particular topic~this one was the fruits of the Spirit~but I am thankful for what God has shown me through it. I just finished my last day of homework before we meet tomorrow night. It was amazing! The last day was all about living the life of a victor~from the time we rise until the time we lay down at night. I thought I'd share some Scripture to tell you why this thrills me so~and why I love the idea of falling to sleep with Him every single night.

Psalm 63:1~8

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.

Comfort is found in these words! I also love this verse:

Psalm 4:8 I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.

Well, I don't have time to expound much more on this~I have to get my lunch ready for work. I hope this soothes your weary soul today~I know it did mine. Love to all and be blessed!

It did soothe my soul as I read it aloud. God is so AWESOME! There is no way we can describe His goodness. I was cleaning my bathroom and just broke the top to a candle holder and cut my pinkie and just came to sit down to get over it before I have to clean up all the glass and this was so refreshing to encourage me to continue on!
Bunches of love.

Huh? Look what up? The Bible verses? I would be afraid they wouldn't look it up~that's why I write it out. I know you've been sick~I tried to comment on your blog again, but failed miserably. :( I will be glad when you find out what's going on to start getting better. Lurve you!!

the weekend and a few other things

We had a glorious weekend.  Well, other than my sinus problem that made me feel sick, but I didn't let it stop me from having fun all we...
