Life in the shadow of His wings - Psalm 63:7♥

5/11/2011 Psalm 63:7 You have been my help. In the shadow of your wings, I sing joyfully. ♥

Life is so much easier and sweeter when we realize that God has a hand in all the amazing things that happen in our lives and in the lives of our family. Today I had a conversation with an acquaintance that made me realize how beautiful it is to be aware and acknowledge that God takes care of all the details of my life.

She told me how her son keeps getting the right college financial aid package year after year and she can’t explain it. She marveled at what “luck” he has had. I replied, "I call that the grace of God." She replied, "It's what it is. I don't know."

For it’s by God’s hand that circumstances benefit our lives – after all he works all things together for our good. How amazing it would be if this person opened her eyes to see that God has her son under the shadow of his wings.

Sin on the journey

Before I know it, sin drips from my mouth and floods my mind. Oh the struggle.
Romans 7:22-23 I love to do God’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free. 
My current struggle is in not easily recognizing the extent of my sinfulness. I can easily preach it, but continuous righteous living eludes me.
Ouch. It hurts. I reveal this because I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul, but the sinner in me wins. It's the same struggle the A…
