“For Your love is more delightful than wine” ~Song of Solomon 1:2 March 13, 2007

“Now God designed the human machine to run on Himself. He Himself is the fuel our spirits were designed to burn, or the food our spirits were designed to feed on. There is no other. That is why it is just no good asking God to make us happy in our own way without bothering about religion. God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.” ~ CS Lewis

I have been on this roller coaster ride… continuing to desire to get more into the Word, to spend more quality time focusing on God, but then life sets in and I find myself back in the “I need to get back into it” phase.  And when I get into that phase, I again begin to beat myself up.  And it’s not because I am not in the Word… I have my Tuesday night Bible study… which I LOVE and enjoy spending the time with those in the group and there’s youth group.  I am reading and praying, but I beat myself up because sometimes my heart isn’t always right there in it.  I want to desire waking up in the morning and reading my Bible… going to sleep at night after reading a book and having some quite time.  But life gets in the way…

This quote from “Mere Christianity” drives home why we were created and what our focus in life needs to be… why is it that we expect God to fulfill our desires when we are not truly focusing on Him to discover His Will??  I am the first to complain (not that it’s my right) that my life is not how I have pictured it to be… and I continually wonder and pray why God doesn’t fill my desires and if my desires are not God’s Will for my life, that He would change my desires to mirror His… this has been a prayer for quite a few years now… so I continually pray and try to discover the balance between our desires and God’s Will… and remind myself that it is all in His timing, although it can be painful. I need to rest in Him… not beat myself up when I don’t live up to the standards that I have set and continue to set my eyes upon Him… moment by moment…

“Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.”
~Psalm 62:5

“But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.”
~Psalm 1:2

“Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
~Psalm 37:4

“Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight.” 
~Psalm 119:35

Have you ever had one of those weeks????

This week has been a week where I can’t do anything right, everything is “my fault”, things that were meant to be funny… just aren’t, I shouldn’t even open my mouth… because either I am going to get yelled at or told that my opinion doesn’t matter.  Sometimes I get to the point where I just want to run away… because screaming would be pointless…

but then… I realize… wtf :-)… I am going to Paris…

I know God is good… I know I am happy… this is just a moment in time… fortune cookies are fun “Seize every second of your life and savor it”… God has given me friends that care… and sometimes my opinion doesn’t matter to them, but it matters to others.  It’s not my fault… but if I have a part in it… I need to understand, I can accept it… maybe the biggest fault I have is not holding you accountable.  I know that things might get worse before they get better…  run away… then I have to start all over… silly one…

“But be sure to fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you.” ~1 Samuel 12:24

“Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.” ~Psalm 36:5

“I will sing of the LORD’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations.” ~Psalm 89:1

“Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.” ~Proverbs 3:3

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” ~Romans 12:12
