Waters gone by.

(Random preface: Can I please just tell you why my MacBook just got SO much better? I downloaded “Mozilla Firefox” as my internet browser- I think it is kinda like taking your favorite blankie to college. Not the cool thing to do, but still the thing that brings you comfort. So I’m feeling more at home now. Trust me, it was about to get to me. I needed my blankie.)

On to more normal musings….

I don’t usually go to the book of Job for inspiration. I mean really, who wants to read about someone who pretty much lost everything for being a good guy? It kinda gives me the heeby-jeebies. But, thanks to this AMAZING new CD I bought (“Glory Revealed”- have you bought it on iTunes yet?), I can’t get out of this portion of scripture.

Job 11:13-18
Yet if you devote your heart to Him and stretch out your hands to Him, if you put away the sin that is in your hand and allow no evil to dwell in your tent, then you will lift up your face without shame; you will stand firm and without fear. You will surely forget your trouble, recalling it only as waters gone by. Life will be brighter than noonday, and darkness will become like morning. You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety.

I actually wrote about this scripture last night and what it means to me where my life is today. But I decided to just put the verses and let you enjoy them. I won’t tell you why it’s my new favorite. Just trust me that it is- God’s promises are TRUE and TRUSTWORTHY.

Taste and see that the Lord is good.

    “You will be secure because there is hope”. I love that.
