Psalms 68:19 Praise the Lord; praise God our savior! For each day he carries us in his arms.
As soon as I read this verse today I felt comfort. I pictured a tired two year old reaching up to their daddy... hands stretched out...and that daddy picking up that child... we have all seen and smiled at this very picture of life... the child wraps their arms around their daddy's neck lays their head down... and before you know it they are all safe and sound and fast asleep. No matter where they are... in a crowd... or safe at home... they feel all wonderfully safe and secure...they know without a doubt that nothing in this world is going to hurt them or bother them... their daddy has them and they are all safe and they feel all safe. They just rest in their daddy's love. This verse made me know that I can come and sit on my couch and say "God I am here for you to hold me and keep me safe so that I can rest." and when I do I can feel complete peace and comfort... I just tired it.... and it felt amazing. When we are exhausted..no matter where we are at we can call on God and ask him to carry us in his arms...just like we were two and we can feel that wonderful peace... we can feel out bodies relax...I know that if we take the time to do this for just a few minutes in the middle of a busy day God will give us peace and rest... He will relax our bodies and our minds...our souls and the rest of the day will be easier to bare. This is a really exciting verse. I can't wait to put it into action!
