Deut. 7; Ps.90; Isa. 35; Rev. 5

Sitting in front of a computer screen for almost three hours. Toggling between translations: NIV, NLT, The Message. Two cups of coffee, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Gmail. Facebook. A load of clothes in the dryer. I go old-fashioned and pull out a pen and paper, jotting down key words:

Small, God loves, set apart …

Distracted by menus and resisting urges to make a last-minute grocery list next to words Deuteronomy 7.

Lord, quiet my thoughts.

5:02 and birdsong queued, playing outside the window. Sky lightens.

Unfailing love. Remember what he did. Remember miracles and wonders

I’m feeling the swell of the day push me along.

God is among you and he is great and awesome. (Deuteronomy 7:21b NLT)

My Friday morning temperament meets God’s unchanging character.

1 Lord, through all the generations
you have been our home!
2 Before the mountains were born,
before you gave birth to the earth and the world,
from beginning to end, you are God. (Psalm 90:1-2, NLT, emphasis mine)

I grab word handfuls overflowing of Him, His whispers, to face the day.

    His words calm the soul!

  2. His words ARE refreshing, calming, filling. I’m glad that when my mind is all over the place, he’s the steady presence pulling me back.
