How is everybody doing?
I know, me too.
I’m just a little unnerved by news reports,
but watching for a move of God in our midst.
As we all do our part and practice social isolation for fifteen days (at least), I hope we each can redeem the time by using it wisely. I hope books are read, books are written, music is listened to, music is composed, bread is kneaded and baked, garages are cleaned, letters are written. I hope families pray together, play games together, are patient with each other. I hope the still, small voice of the Lord gets our attention. I hope we find strength and comfort in His Word.
But I trust in you, O Lord;
I say, “You are my God.”
My times are in your hands.
I listened to a reading of Psalm 23 this morning, and it felt like a moment of calm in the chaos, a balm for my jitters, a restful reminder of who I am and Who is leading me.
We are the flock.
We have a Shepherd.
Over the next several days, I invite you to meditate with me on this psalm of David. Let’s let our minds soak in the beauty and comfort of these life-giving, faith-building words.
