The Journey Readings: Week 113… and when He numbers days in unexpected ways…

The very full week… the one pressed tight…
the one I asked Him to number aright…
took an unexpected turn…

The day set for catching up…
turned into a day for being laid out…

Waking pre-dawn with an illness stealing more than a day… and still feeling puny… left me backing out of commitments… behind in my readings… and totally forgetting to write…

But in the pain… discomfort… dis-ease…
I didn’t forget Him…
didn’t forget His faithfulness…
didn’t forget He had a plan… even in this…

I sang… in my heart…
Bless the Lord… O my soul…
O my soul… Worship His holy name…
Sing like never before… O my soul…
Worship His holy name…

Praising Him… in the unexpected…
Trusting Him…. in the numbering of days…
Resting in Him… in what’s undone… and the catching up to do…

Praise the Lord, O my soul,
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits —
who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you
with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Psalm 103:1-5
When He numbers your days…
in unexpected ways…
He is still worthy to be praised…


His Word says there’s a heart of wisdom to be had…
when He numbers our days…
so trusting Him to reveal that too…

It certainly is a journey…
