Enjoying reading through some of the many words I write in my journal. My journal is an A4 size page a day diary. As I read through my Bible, I write down any verses that are particularly relevant to me that day.
And I've been reading a little of Amy Carmichael - "Sometimes in prayer, it is difficult to find the words. Often our Lord Jesus turned Bible words into prayer. The Psalms were the prayer book of the Early Church. It is ours still. We cannot ever fathom the depths of this book."
Bishop Moule said that a hymn book was a good prayer book too. They offer words to us when we have none of our own.
I am very grateful today that daily God restores us. Nothing is impossible for Him.
Isaiah 26 v 3-4 "You will keep him in PERFECT PEACE,
Whose MIND is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
Trust in the Lord forever, for in the Lord Jehovah is EVERLASTING STRENGTH!!!"
I am feeling better already, I have read and prayed and thought and learned and blogged my way out of feeling 'under the weather', and ready to get up now and start that casserole that's waiting for my attention. I work all day on Tuesdays to Thursdays, and sometimes part of Mondays and Fridays too, so I have got into a good habit of filling my slow cooker with good things on my home days, so I have something home-made to heat up when I am busy. Tomorrow night, when I walk in the front door at around 6.30 pm, I'll be very glad that casserole is there!
Be encouraged, be strengthened, accept the perfect peace of God today my friend.
