I missed posting on week 3 of the Read With Me (1 year bible reading plan)...but I'm still reading.
I am enjoying it so- very- much.
We cover quite a bit in a week - entirely too much to write about it all in this post, so I want to share one thing I took away from the last seven days.
Psalm 22 was part of the reading for this week.
Reading it was timely.
Especially in light of a conversation I had with my twelve year old son.
"I know you say that God is with me, but sometimes, Mom, I feel like God isn't with me."
He's in good company. There are many men (and women) in the bible who have felt the same way.
King David penned these words:
I love David's honesty.
I love that he's say's what's on his mind: Lord where are you? I am desperately alone.
But he also remembers the TRUTH: Lord, I know I can trust you, because you have faithfully answered the prayers of those I live my life with...with those who have walked before me.
In spite of his doubt, He chooses to set his heart on Truth, he sets his heart on the Lord.
In verse 22 he declares:
When we feel alone, we praise the God who is always with us, even when our feelings tell us He isn't there!
All right, Read with Me Gals, let press forward into another week!
