3/5/22 – Focus on the Blessings….

In my grief…

23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

In this walk of grief I have felt pretty hopeless at times. With upheaval in both personal and professional capacities, I find the one place I find peace is when I count my blessings. When I spend time in God’s word I know that He is with me. I know that He will comfort me. He will show me goodness and mercy. The enemies circling around me like vultures may currently be pecking away the slivers of happiness left in my soul, but He prepares a table in the presence of mine enemies, and anoints my head with oil. One day my cup will runneth over. Until then I will remember that I’ve been in these valleys before. Yet He never left me. In the days to come I will be trying to focus on those blessings, remembering that with Him I am never alone.

Faith

is the bird

that feels the light

And sings

when the dawn

is still dark.

– Rabindranath Tagore
