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.
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.
