Our AC isn't working. This is not an ideal combination for an 8 1/2 month pregnant Mamma! BUT "the boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places." Today is overcast (compliments of Hurricane/Tropical Storm/Hurricane/Tropical Depression/Hurricane/WHATEVER! Fay) and so I am choosing to be thankful instead of complaining.
Psalm 16 was the passage I read this morning, and I'm so thankful for The Lord's timing. "I say to the Lord, 'You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.' (that's v.2) The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot. The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. (v 5-6) I bless the Lord who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand I whall not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells seure. For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let your holy one see corruption. You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore."
I wasn't originally going to write out the whole passage... but WOW! The Lord is so faithful to have me read such a beautiful Psalm the very morning that I may be tempted to complain! Hey, David didn't have AC when he wrote this! :) I want to model for the children a godly attitude. I have NO GOOD apart from the Lord! The lines have truly fallen for us in pleasant places- my family is healthy and together, we are able to enjoy this weather while learning a new lesson... and God's mercies are new today.
