Give me sense...

If a day can be perfect, this one was pretty close. I know it isn't over yet, but I must thank God for the "so far".

Going to church is always great, but this morning was particularly good because Steven led worship with an obvious anointing that ushered in God's presence and made it easy to remember the reason we were there.

What a joy to know (and remember) that when it's all said and done, it's all about God! Throughout this day I've enjoyed little reminders of His greatness and His goodness, His power and His perfection.

After lunch with our children and grandchildren, we enjoyed some outside time by the pool and were surprised by a visit from two of our "adopted" kids who brought news that they are expecting their first child early next year. We couldn't be more ecstatic to know that another little life is being fashioned in the image of God!

Life. It really is a miracle and a reminder of how creative God is. As we eagerly await the arrival of our third granddaughter, I marvel at the mystery of God's amazing design.

Today's verses are among the most poetic in scripture. Psalm 119, verses 1-88, capture my heart with challenging words and insightful reminders that we are here for a reason and that life is a beautiful, sometimes chaotic journey that affords us the opportunity to choose to seek, find and follow the One who loves us most, or to follow the road well-traveled with all those who reject and deny their need for The Lord.

Thank you Father, that you have chosen to reveal yourself to all who seek you and that your Word brings comfort, consolation and confidence to all who place their trust in You!

Psalm 119:
18 Open my eyes to see
the wonderful truths in your instructions.
29 Keep me from lying to myself;
give me the privilege of knowing your instructions.
35 Make me walk along the path of your commands,
for that is where my happiness is found.
37 Turn my eyes from worthless things,
and give me life through your word.
73 You made me; you created me.
Now give me the sense to follow your commands.
