Remember when I mentioned that when God wants to teach us something, he comes at us from a couple directions? Well, that happened yesterday again. I'm in the middle of two different Bible studies, but each had a verse in Psalms that grabbed me. Psalm 27:5 says, "For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will lift me high upon a rock" and Psalm 3:3 says, "But you, O LORD, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head." In other words, in difficult days (actually on all days) God protects me from the trouble around me and even lifts me above it. He enables me to rise above the circumstances and lifts my head so I'm not dwelling on them. Thanks, God (and Susanne).
On a more humorous note, I noticed this verse in Psalm 58:8: "Let them be like the snail that dissolves into slime . . ." Isn't that a picture? I can just imagine a little boy throwing this phrase back to one of his cohorts, "I hope you turn into a snail and just dissolve into slime! So there!"
Have a great day! I resolve to take some pictures today and work on posting them--soon--be patient with me!
