Wednesday In The Word: Psalm 71

Where do you go when you don't know where to turn and everything just seems to be going haywire, inspite of all your efforts to keep it together? You know, I have lived enough life to know that women are professionals at keeping it all together. We know that it just is not true that we are able to keep everything in total order and control. What if we spent as much time getting to know God as we do on appearances?

I love this scripture that I came across:

I run for dear life to God, I'll never live to regret it.
Do what you do so well: get me out of this mess and up on my feet.
Put your ear to the ground and listen, give me space for salvation.
Be a guest room where I can retreat; you said your door was always open.
You're my salvation—my vast, granite fortress

Psalm 71:1-4

From the rooftop:

Are you running for dear life in some area of you life?

Run to God

You will not regret it

Put your ear to the ground, listen for Him speak or whisper to you

He will give you space to say to Him whatever you need to, you will not surprise or hurt Him

His Door is always open

Walk into His room of safety

He will be your salvation

Today I heard a young man say that He was alone with God for about an hour. Finally he said, "wait a minute, God you haven't said anything to me." He said it was if God said, "I just want you to be quiet and spend time with ME."

What could God be saying to us? May we all run to Him and spend time with Him.

I love you,

This is GREAT. It reminds me of my Bible study in Ruth this morning and a song we sing at church...something about "I'm running..." I have the tune in my head now and will be singing those same 3 words over and over. :)
