Have you ever experienced a day where you feel a little fragile, way out of your comfort zone and don’t quite want to get out of bed because you know there are 10 billion things you have to do, which need 10 billion hours, yet you only have 12 (or at most 16) hours to get them done in? Today I had one of those days. So, after trying to go to the gym and then a uni class and failing to make it to either, I decided an afternoon of rest was in need because my productivity was at a level of big-fat-zero. Today’s plans can be dealt with tomorrow.
Flowers and food. Always a good pick me up.
With my roasted vegetable sandwich stack I sat in the sun and dwelt on my great God’s character.
1 Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s…
8 The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
9 He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
13 As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knows how we are formed,
he remembers that we are dust.
15 The life of mortals is like grass,
they flourish like a flower of the field;
16 the wind blows over it and it is gone,
and its place remembers it no more.
17 But from everlasting to everlasting
the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,
and his righteousness with their children’s children—
18 with those who keep his covenant
and remember to obey his precepts.
