Just finished our 2nd session… We were looking at the next couple of verses of Psalm 84.5-6 and what it means to set our hearts on pilgrimage.
I just wanted to share a couple of thoughts that two people shared with me in the opening discussion time. The first was related to going through difficulty:
Even though, even here, Immanuel…
I loved that when I heard it from an elderly follower of Jesus as want that the be my cry in the wilderness!
The second was a response to my sharing about not knowing what’s going on in the next season of life. She asked ‘what gives you the most joy, what is it that God has made as your delight?’
I knpow there is a balance here, but her sharing it has resonated with a couple of Bible verses I’ve been thinking about lately.
“The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in Him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds Him with His hand” – PS 37.23-24
“Take delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart” – PS 37.4
By the way worship went well again…May I lean on Your strength more.
