Finally we've got to a happy part in Ezekiel!
"I myself will search for my sheep and look after them...I will make them and the places surrounding my hill a blessing. I will send down showers in season there will be showers of blessing...You are my sheep, the sheep of my pasture, and I am your God."
And in this last chapter of Hebrews another awesome verse 13:5-6 "God has said 'Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.' So we say with confidence, 'The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?'"
I'm getting a little weary. Just actually physically exhausted, I'm working 30 hours this week...30 hours on my feet, learning a new job, constantly being tempted by cake. It's a lot to adjust to. The job is busy and I'm meeting new people and we aren't always in a good mood especially because the job is so busy. And I find it hard to keep my patience with everyone when I'm frustrated having to learn so quickly while also becoming increasingly more exhausted each day.
But I'm reminded today about hope. And it's something I'm really struggling to define right now...as in I've been sitting here staring at the screen for about 10 minutes trying to figure out how to say what I'm thinking. So maybe you oughta just go read these passages of Scripture, like always, on your own.
But I guess it feels like permission to take a deep breath, whenever I need to. And consider that in the midst of achy feet, low blood sugar, 500 people asking 10 million things from me, and a manager who reminds me stay on top of it all i.e. life, in the midst of all that, God is there. And He is Shepherd. He extends grace and love. And He is my story, my happy ending. And all those other things become nothing, God fills everything. I pray in those moments now that I would remember God is there, for myself and for those around me.
Gratitude: for my manager who let me take home a slice of cake today for free. Totally made my day.
It was lemon berry cream cake. I mean.....
