This morning as I opened my bible to spend some time with God I felt a bump.
This has happened before.....
lots in fact as I cleaned out random debris from its' pages...
but I haven't found much junk in there lately.
Anyway, I found a leaf.
Part of a leaf, to be exact.
Dry, brittle, still green....with a chunk of white insulation wrapped around it.
Now I am CERTAIN I have found tornado puke here before.
A huge chunk of glass, in fact.
And I am CERTAIN I cleaned out this page.....
I even have photographic proof of it (in earlier blogs!!) so I know it's happened.
Yet....here's another large directive bump.
Guess God thought I should revisit these Psalms?
So I did.
Man...I love Him.
Psalm 46 is amazing....but it's not the only one that spoke to me this morning.
Above it, in the end of Psalm 45 it says:
"Listen, O daughter.
Consider and incline your ear;
Forget your own people also and your father's house;
So the King will greatly desire your beauty;
Because He is your Lord, worship Him.....
....The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace;
Her clothing is woven with gold."
Psalm 45: 10-13
Know what God let me know today?
(and a side note here....how often does the bible specifically address DAUGHTERS? Lots of "to my sons..." which I realize means all children of God....but it is awfully nice to find a "daughter" too!)
I am beautiful to Him.
He wants me close to Him.
He has given me a place in His palace.
He really really really loves me.
AND.....in Psalm 46 I get the reminder that
"God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble."
GOOD GOOD morning.
