Psalm 61

Hear my cry, O God;
listen to my prayer.

From the ends of the earth I call to you,
I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher
than I.
For you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the foe.

I long to dwell in your tent forever,
and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.

I've felt really tired lately, and haven't done very well in making time for devotions with God. In my Mary Heart Bible study, the last chapter I read was on living room intimacy with God. One story was told about a man who had different rooms in his house, but he had a sitting room with a cozy fire, where the Lord would sit with him and have devotionals every morning. There came a time when he got busy, and he would miss a couple of days in a row. Then one day he walked by the sitting room, and noticed that the Lord was there, waiting for him. See, God had been there waiting for him every day, even when the man wasn't there. And so it is with me. God is waiting for me to spend time with Him, and immerse myself in His Word. I need to keep the appointment. :)

  1. This reminds me of that picture of Christ at the door that doesn't have the doorknob on His side. We have to be the ones to open the door.
