My wife bought our new puppy an ID tag. When I opened the envelope I started laughing out loud!
It is comforting to know that Luke has someone to remind him who he belongs to when he get lost.
It doesn’t take much for us to get a little lost ourselves, does it? Covid 19 sure has done a number us, Scrambling up the things we based our identity on. Hard Worker, Good Parent, Scheduled, Teacher, Developer. Efficient, Productive, and Patient are all high valued core ID words worthy of any white board.
Wooosh! Gone! Wiped Corona clean. Nothing left but streaks & dry erase crumbles.
I’m a doer, and for years I have prided myself on working harder that anyone around me. A friend of mine saw me struggling the second week of quarantine, It was probably the lines I was wearing in the carpet from pacing that tipped him off. He kindly gave me an exercise that has really helped reframe who God actually made me to be. It has been the most enjoyable trip through Psalms I have ever taken. In this vacuum of high demand and break-neck pace, I am using each Psalm to remind me who I really am.
Are you on the fence about what pyramid marketing empire to start, become a master gardener, or do you finally have all your socks organized and labeled by color? Maybe this is an exercise you could use too. Here is what Psalm 1 looked like for me:
I AM WATCHED OVER
At first I thought “Neat!” like having the lucky winning the PTA raffle ticket. Then I kept reading, Like a trail of pure gold God lays out how he sees us at our highest potential and lowest of lows.
I am not sure what you have going on this weekend, but I am sure God created coffee and sunshine for exercises just like this. Take a stroll through Psalms, I hope it fills your soul as much as mine.
We will get through this together!
In His service and at yours,
