At the end of a very busy week filled with emotional ups and downs and highs and lows and too many to-do's, I overslept this morning and then had a (most welcome) phone call from afar and the soup that I was serving for lunch wasn't ready and I realized that I was not going to get it all together in time to go to church. After Ron and the girls walked out the door, I sat down to unfrazzle...to "tune my heart." I opened the Daily Light on the Daily Path and soaked in these truths from the Lord of all creation, who is also, wonder of wonders, my loving Father.
Perhaps these thoughts will reach your heart too...
Thy thoughts are very deep.
We ... do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. - That ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! - My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. - Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
