He can use anything

I started off my morning being reminding of God's goodness through this post. Sarah, as always, beautifully articulates the way the Lord answers our prayers and His constant faithfulness to us. When I sat down this afternoon to work on my Bible study I thought of Psalm 37 again and decided to read it. It was exactly what I needed to read/hear this afternoon. We are in the midst of a difficult week and I needed to know this:

"A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found. But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace." Psalm 37:10-11
Actually, I needed to hear the whole chapter, but this verse spoke to my heart and renews my hope that there will be peace...right now it is available to me through Jesus Himself and it is promised to me for eternity. There will be a day when the smallest things don't turn into a battle...where relationships aren't so loaded and we can truly be who we were created to be...where the weight of this world will no longer threaten to crush us....

I am longing for that day. But for this moment, for this day and this week, being reminded that my hope is in Him is enough.

(And I'm delighted that, once again, God can use the trivial things of this world-like a blog- to encourage me!)
