Hello, there! Happy Friday!
I am back home for awhile, having arrived back last night. It was great to catch up with my husband and kids live in person, and our neighbors, and then sleep in my bed last night. I’ll be here for quite awhile, as I have knee surgery scheduled for Monday.
This morning’s passage is a great one as I reflect on the last week.
Here is what I heard in Psalm 57 when applying SOAP:
Scripture: Psalm 57: 9-10
I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing praises to you among the nations.
For your steadfast love is great to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the clouds.
I will thank you and let others know of your awesomeness. Your love is massive and enduring.
I need to share the stories of his love and provision, and always acknowledge Him. He is the one who has opened amazing doors for me. He is the one who has prepared me to walk through them, He will continue to prepare me and guide me. He truly amazes me. I cannot tell you how many times this week I have paused, smiled and talked to the Holy Spirit about the excitement in my life, thanking him for so many amazing opportunities and asking him to guide me in next steps. Every morning, as I walked through the hotel lobby to the meetings, I listened to Third Day on my phone, thanking Him and focusing on Him, instead of the slot machines and massive amounts of people. It was a great way to start my work day each morning, getting me focused on from where my direction comes.
Lord, you are amazing! I would not be whom I am or where I am without your love and faithfulness. Thank you for showing me the path. Thank you for preparing me to follow that path. Please, Lord, never leave me. Please always guide me because with you, I know I am on the right path. You will not let me down.
Show me my next steps . We’ve talked about my goals. Please refine those, Lord, if they are not also yours. Show me how to follow the path you have set for me. And please, Lord, show me how to glorify you. Your steadfast love IS great to the heavens, your faith reaches the clouds. I see that daily. Thank you, Lord. Thank you for loving me and guiding me. I am honored to be yours.
