~ Amidst all the Busyness ~

this month, let’s turn to Psalm 34.
Psalm 34 encourages us to use our senses of sight and sound to look and listen for God.
Surprise! God shows up! God answers!

It takes time and intentionality
to make room for God in the busyness of life.
When get very busy, I like to put myself in an empty room, sit in silence, and wait.

Perhaps that
is the wrong mindset.
It assumes that my life and God are separate,
that I need to put one on hold in order to allow for the other.

But the psalmist writes,
“I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.”

This month let’s seek the Lord in all we do!
When we notice that God is there,
let’s revel in His presence and shout with joy!
With great LOVE for YOU in CHRIST,
