The busier I am lately, the more I want to delve into the Word. When overwhelmed, it's easier to see how God comes through for you. I hate that we don't meditate on His word more often.
I'm also trying to memorize a few passages. Psalm 119 caught my attention the other day. I'm taking it a section at a time and not memorizing much, unfortunately, but I think this is where I'll stay for a while. It's just beautiful. I'm not sure the historical context it was written in, but it's speaking to my current whirlwind in big ways.
Verse 1 says "happy are those whose way is blameless, who live according to the law of the LORD!" - this reminds me so much of 2 Peter 3:14 which says to be spotless before God. That's been a big deal lately. I rarely get embarrassed, but I have caught myself trying to please people instead of God. I wonder about the reactions of those around me or those involved before I do something I feel is right because I fear the judgment of others. In truth, God's opinion is the only one that matters. Verse 2 goes on to say that those who seek Him with ALL their hearts are happy. When you attempt to please others, you are dividing your heart.
