Psalm 63: 1-5
A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah.
1 O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you,
my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.
2 I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.
3 Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.
4 I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.
5 My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
When you arrive at the destination where you are more consumed with what you'll feed your spirit than what you feed your face.... you will FIND what ALL men seek. Love, Peace, Joy.... freedom to live as God Created Man to live. Everyday we pack up our "baggage" and step onto a road WE choose. We may think we know where we are headed but clearly we make choices to choose roads that do not lead us the destination we say we are seeking. We get distracted and turn corners, make U Turns.... Ignore the Signs on the road that say, Stop, Yield, One way..... This way to the Emerald City! (hahaha)
This morning I looked back at the very first Blog I wrote APRIL 2009. Then I read that January 1st 2009 is when I started my 21 Day's to Health and Wellness. Here I am today, still needing to make the right choices BUT the WAR inside myself that I had experienced most of my life has been WON!
Yes, there are some small fights BUT NOT A WAR. And as David said as he stood before the Giant with only a sling shot and 5 small pebbles. That was after Saul gave David his own armor. David could hardly move. But, he didn't need the "carnal way" to fight the enemy. No, HE just needed his Faith in GOD.. HE just needed to believe in His Savior. BUT, HE had to take action! Surely, God could have taken a lighting bolt to kill the Giant. But God shows us through this Powerful Story that the youngest, smallest man stood up to a Giant when HE was obedient and followed the Lords directions. It only took FAITH to have the courage to TAKE action and kill the Giant.
I have learned that I need to take Action,
drawing direction, strength and courage
from the Word of God and My Relationship the My Savior
The Lord has revealed to me during this Quest, Journey... whatever you want to call it... so many Truths about my LIFE.
If I could sum up the foundation of what I have learned about what I've been chasing all these years,
it would be this scripture verse Psalms 63: 1-5
HE is My God... HE is My Creator. When I read my instruction manual, when I review how I was made and for the purpose I was made.... IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE.
I've been fooled just like EVE all those years. Seeking to be my OWN God. Trying to do it MY WAY. Forgetting or maybe wanting to ignore the call of my Savior to let HIM meet me and present to me ALL that will satisfy my Soul.
Everyday I now choose to NOT BITE THE APPLE (figuratively of course). I walk through the Garden seeking HIM who created me.
And Oh, the Joy that floods my SOUL.
Something wonderful Happened and Know I know
HE TOUCHED ME and made me WHOLE!
(wonderful Hymn by Audrey Myers)
Salute! To your Health and Wellness
