Thoughts from my God journal:

November 4, 2010

The stress had left me feeling vulnerable; maybe even a bit achey.

I wanted to be held. I wanted to have arms wrapped around me, with a my head against a strong chest, curled up.
Safe. Secure.

I went to grab this [my God journal], but grabbed my Bible instead. "Weird," I thought. So I went to the shelf for this journal, but decided that maybe God wanted to talk to me, instead of me talking to Him. Psalms 139 came to mind; one of my favorites. So I opened up to it.

I got to verse 5:

"You hem me in--behind and before;
You have laid your hand upon me."

I read a cross reference too.

"...but the Lord's unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him."
[Psalms 32:10]

And You were/are waiting for me--Big arms to envelope and surround me. With hands to hold mine.

I felt You.

Safe. Secure.
