hm.. This is one of those mornings when I wish this were my thought:
“I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices in great riches.” Psalm 119:14 NIV
Instead, I am not sure that I have even thought about any of those things this morning as the house was busy with preparations for another day. Interestingly enough rejoicing, great riches nor following his statutes has entered the vast emptiness that sits between my two sound catching devices.
So today here is a simple yet somewhat complex reminder of the pleasure and satisfaction that awaits us when we are joyful because we have surrendered to the teachings of the Christ. It’s quite a paradox, but one I plan on dwelling on today. Think about this. Sometimes, when I see the 220 million dollar Power Ball sign I imagine what I could do with that money – and the projected happiness it would bring him. Well, I know I have never sat and imagined what it would be like if I actually followed the Lord’s statutes and the various rewards that come from that. Ones that actually have long term value. Try that little exercise today.
