aug 8 006Zinnias growing bountifully.

Several thoughts lately have been on ‘waiting.’
I really don’t know why.
I don’t feel anxious about anything.
I don’t feel like I’m ‘waiting’ for anything.
Perhaps I’m being prepared to wait.

I was encouraged with these verses from Psalm 13.

How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD?
for ever?
how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
How long shall I take counsel in my soul,
having sorrow in my heart daily?
how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, . . .

But I have trusted in thy mercy;
my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
I will sing unto the LORD,
because he hath dealt bountifully with me.

bountifully – Giving freely and generously; bighearted, bounteous, giving, openhanded, handsome, freehanded, liberal, big
generous – willing to give and share unstintingly;

Even though, the Psalmist was in a place dark,
feeling forsaken and alone;
He still had hope.
He still knew the bounty of God.
He didn’t let the circumstances in life rob him of that confidence.

Walk in Grace for there is joy in the journey and good times in the going.
