God does not send us into the dangerous and exacting life of faith because we are qualified; He chooses in order to qualify us for what he wants us to be or do." Eugene Peterson

Loving God in the Moment

Psalm 131 - Childlike Trust in the Lord - In just 3 verses:
1.Oh Lord, my heart is not proud
(check it MM/roro, is it?
Ponder this - break it down...)
Nor my eyes haughty
(check it MM/roro are they?
remembering my own sin, NO, I can be above no one.)
Nor do I involve myself in great matters, or in things too difficult for me.
(check it MM/roro - do you?
I can't - they ARE to difficult for me, they ARE.
I am a simple woman)
2. Surely I have composed and quieted my soul; like a weaned child rests against his mother.
(check it MM/roro - have you?
This takes time - have I composed & quieted my soul?
or am I just controlled
I remember one of my children repeatedly coming and resting on me
after he was weaned - I'm glad I have that visual in my mind.
It was such a sweet reassurance to him -
'Yes, Mom's still here, I'm safe. She's here,
She's solid, She sees, I can move forward.'
and off he would run in security.
Yes, God I'm Here, resting on You, I'm quieted, I'm composed
I'm out of control,
You are here -
I check my steps with Your word
I move forward.)
3. O Israel hope in the LORD.
From this time forth and forever.
(Check it MM/roro - where does your HOPE lie?
My hope is in You
You are Hope Filled
You are Hope Fulfilled
forever, and forever, and forever...)
