This morning is absolutely beautiful. The sun is shining, a perfect blue sky, the birds are singing, and a lovely breeze is whisking through the house bringing forth song from the chimes I hung in the kitchen window yesterday. It is 67 degrees so it feels lovely sitting with the sun on my back and under a blanket. It is a perfect morning to journal and sip tea with my Heavenly Father.
This morning, He is reminding me just how much He loves me. He says I am valued by Him and nothing outside of that matters. He loves me more than I can imagine and will take care of me. He does take care of me! Sometimes, he waits for me to ask first. I guess it is like a young mom with her toddler. The toddler is in the kitchen pointing at a jar of sweet with grunts and whining to get her mom’s attention. Her mom turns to her, “What do you want, me Beloved? Use your words.”
How often do I go through life grunting and whining when what I really need to do is pray to my Heavenly Father. He is the one who loves me more than anyone else. The one who is all powerful. And He is the only one who can truly help me in all situations. He just wants me to use my words to ask and to trust Him. Making me ask Him helps me to understand that the blessings in my life are from Him. If He always just poured blessings on me without waiting for me to ask, I would probably give the credit to myself or something else. He knows I need to understand that He is my provider. He is helping me day-by-day to fill my trust bank with memories of His blessings and care. Memories that will serve me on the darker days when I need to stand in faith. He is always good. His love never ends.
“On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God. Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.” Psalm 62:7-8
