Weekend again . . .

Posted: June 17, 2006 by Michele in family

I just realized that I just finished writing about last weekend — and it's weekend again.  Boy, this week went quick.  The girls have had lots of play dates — I even got two mornings to myself this week (and yes, I did get a bit of decluttering done, though there's LOTS more to do).  When the girls' friends are here, that somehow seems to be less work too (as long as they're all deciding to be friends — they ARE girls, after all ;)) Next week is the last week of preschool and gymnastics, and then it's holidays already!  This summer is going to just FLY by.  

I have been meaning to write — I've been reading through some of the Psalms, and so many neat verses keep jumping out at me.  A few from this last week:

But I am trusting you, O Lord, saying "You are my God!"  My future is in your hands. (Ps 31: 14-15a)

The Lord says, "I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.  I will advise you and watch over you." (Ps 32:8)

Commit everything you do to the Lord.  Trust him and he will help you . . . . Be still in the presence of the Lord and wait patiently for him to act. (Ps 37:5 & 7a — right after my favourite verse)

The steps of the goldy are directed by the Lord.  He delights in every detail of their lives. (Ps 37:23)

Don't be impatient for the Lord to act!  Travel steadily along his path.  (Ps 37:34a)

These are all from the New Living Translation (I'm reading through their One Year Chronological Bible right now, but I only got it in February, so I'm still a month or so behind).  Granted, I'm not in the same situation that David was in — running for his life with enemies at every side.  But I still find these verses offer comfort — and some strong challenges.  Don't be impatient; wait for the Lord to act.  It's not my job — God's got it all under control.  My job is to be moving — "travel steadily" — and to let him be the guide.   He's got "every detail" all under control . . . isn't that amazing?!?
