”My body and my heart fail, but God is my heart’s rock and my share forever.” ~Psalm 73:26 (Common English Bible)
Lord, I want to stay in the fold. I want to make sure that all things are done to accomplish that perfection that You so desire for my life. I pray for wisdom, strength and discernment to do the right things, be the right person and know the right path.
Let me truly understand that You are what makes me, and who perfects me and gives me life – life in the here and now and life eternal.
“The bread of God is the one who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” ~ John 6:33 (Common English Bible)
Then I think of being “folded in”. Just like making the perfect crust – folding-in, in perfect measure. That is what He does for me. All of His goodness, lessons and corrections are folded in to make me perfect. I just have to realize that it’s when I start playing with the ingredients, or playing with what is there too long that is when things don’t work as they are designed.
“But look here: God is my helper; my Lord sustains my life.” ~Psalm 54:4 (Common English Bible)
Often times I am only aware that I have a lesson in the words or thoughts, but rarely know how they will come together. Tonight has been one of them. It makes sense in my heart, I pray it makes sense to the page.
