    As a messy person myself, I find great comfort and hope in this! I LOVE those verses from Ecc. .. .did not remember them and am so blessed today, as you bring us His Word and show us His heart toward us. Indeed, a loving pursuit.

    I am thinking about the Genesis 8:21 verse, where it says the imagination (strong desire) of man’s heart is evil. The other day I read in James 1:14 – “But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.” I began to pray to be drawn to HIS desires.

    Another thing . .I too, look for Him and analogies throughout my little simple daily life. Some have told me to stop trying to spiritualize everything. haha! I’m so glad that you understand and do this too! 🙂

    Lastly, I am thinking about this . .”I am beginning to realize that maybe I should hope a little less in myself and just focus on these words and be glad:” I’m not sure if this applies right here, but I have a friend who is going through a really really hard time with her sons, along with a ton of other really hard things. Recently, she finally had time to sit before God and just cry and grieve .. .and felt so much better. And out of that time He showed her that all that was happening, it was all about Him and His dealings with her. It was not about what other people were doing. But it would also now be about how she reflected His dealings with her as she dealt with other people. I hope that makes sense!

    Gosh .. even my comments are messy and all over the place! 🙂
    love and prayers, dear woman of the Word!

      Deb,

      I like the way you tied Genesis 8:21 with James 1:14.

      “Lastly, I am thinking about this . .”I am beginning to realize that maybe I should hope a little less in myself and just focus on these words and be glad:” I’m not sure if this applies right here, but I have a friend who is going through a really really hard time with her sons, along with a ton of other really hard things.

      Deb, this is medicine for my soul. It is that beautiful truth that sets you free. It takes the easy yoke light burden passage to a level that I had not thought about concerning my current challenges. Please pray that I will apply this godly counsel you have shared, and really live in the light of it.

      Love,
      Theresa
