Today I offer a blessing from the pen of David in Psalm 20. My prayer is that you will receive this as your own and know that God is a God of blessings and not curses. You may be in a difficult season and life is blurry. I understand. I’ve had to rub my eyes a few times this year too.
Through it all, we are blessed. I continue to learn about myself and God everyday. I pray you do too. As you read this know that I am thankful for you. I am so honored that you have made space for me in your inbox. That you read and comment on the blog. That you comment, like and share on Facebook and Twitter. That you would actually want to pin something I created. It just blows me away. Why God chose this broken and insecure girl to use, it seems so illogical.
Paul says it so wonderfully in his first letter to the Corinthian church, “Take a good look, friends, at who you were when you got called into this life. I don’t see many of “the brightest and the best” among you, not many influential, not many from high-society families. Isn’t it obvious that God deliberately chose men and women that the culture overlooks and exploits and abuses, chose these “nobodies” to expose the hollow pretensions of the “somebodies”? That makes it quite clear that none of you can get by with blowing your own horn before God. Everything that we have—right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start—comes from God by way of Jesus Christ. That’s why we have the saying, “If you’re going to blow a horn, blow a trumpet for God.” (1:26-28 MSG)
Blowing a trumpet for God today. Because all we are and ever hope to be is in His capable hands. Happy Thanksgiving friends.
