If I don’t post on a certain day, just know I’ll catch you up (usually after travel!). The last few days, I’ve thought of three things most of all:
In Psalm 90, I’m struck by Moses’ words. He writes this:
14 Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love,
that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
and for as many years as we have seen evil.
16 Let your work be shown to your servants,
and your glorious power to their children.
17 Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us,
and establish the work of our hands upon us;
yes, establish the work of our hands!
I love how this oldest psalm ever recorded envisions a life full of gladness, power, favor, and calling. Pray this over your household. Pray this for your own heart.
Secondly, I’ve been thinking about wisdom as described in Proverbs 8. Wisdom is better than jewels. When you have wisdom, in particular, the Spirit of Wisdom that is Jesus, you have riches, honor, and love. It “fills [your] treasuries.” How wonderful to think of being rich in Christ’s righteousness, of being rich in the fruit of the Spirit, of being rich in good deeds.
Finally, for today, I woke up thinking of the Discipline of Delight. When I missed the practice of blogging my daily delights the past few days, I felt the absence of that. It’s a discipline, just like reading the Bible, praying, or attending church. It’s a spiritual practice that I’ve honed for 13 years now. The Discipline of Delight: I’ll share more of what I’m learning about this in days to come.
