Sunday reflection . . . .You have searched me, Lord

48156110_2159388310792431_3524571929715408896_n

 

 

You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.

– Psalm 139

We learn under the tutelage of wounds.

“But gradually we learn something very precious under the tutelage of these
wounds. We learn a compassion for others that replaces judging, self-loathing,
and the compulsion to find someone to blame. We learn a reverent joy before our
wounds that replaces the condemnation of and comparison of ourselves with others
that used to fuel our anxiety. We learn that the consummation of self-esteem is
self-forgetful abandonment to the Silence of God that gives birth to loving
service of all who struggle.”

And let God’s people say Amen.

“Let the day end,
the night fall,
the world move into silence,
And let God’s people say AMEN.

Let minds unwind,
hearts be still,
bodies relax
And let God’s people say AMEN.

But before the day is done,
Let God’s holy name be praised,
And let God’s people say AMEN.”

Be Thankful

46936974_1867645079951399_5260388039045152768_n

 

 

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary
Because it means you’ve made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
also thankful for the setbacks.

GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessings.

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High

46517325_1222655647898219_1534780896501039104_n

 

 

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

~ Bible(Psalm 91:1-2)
