Strewn throughout my life experiences, God’s perfect timing has been more than evident.
Sometimes it’s “right on”, according to my flawed human standards…
and yet, other experiences prove His timing to be quite comical…
Two such instances of His perfect timing have come quite recently..
The first, during last week’s post of Bible verses that reminds us we are not alone..
I’ve been feeling like my quiet time with God has been lagging…feeling at a loss about what to pray for, knowing I need to listen more and babble less…falling asleep in the middle of it (*sigh*)…
So, coming to the next section of my husband’s book and seeing the title “Fantastic Prayers” just makes me chuckle.
With all that said, here are a few verses for you (&me!)…
maybe these will give us both the jump start we need!
Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me,
for in you I take refuge.
I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings
until the disaster has passed.
I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
Open my eyes that I may see
wonderful things in your law.
My soul is weary with sorrow;
strengthen me according to your word.
Teach me, LORD, the way of your decrees,
that I may follow it to the end.
Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law
and obey it with all my heart.
Direct me in the path of your commands,
for there I find delight.
Turn my heart toward your statutes
and not toward selfish gain.
Turn my eyes away from worthless things;
preserve my life according to your word.
