Feeling the pressures of life, I enjoy this shiny reminder of fostering deeper relationships in the midst of a barren culture. Physically, I have become better at staying at a “safe” distance but socially, I have had many amazing experiences this year.
In September, I started attending a Zoom Bible study through “Heart 2 Heart”. It has been a joyful time of getting to know 7 precious women from diverse backgrounds. The richness and self- discovery has helped me feel connected (using a new virtual format) but ultimately connecting through God’s love and prayer.
At work, I have been blessed to meet 47 people that I would have never known as I’ve had the opportunity to mentor our new hire RN’s.
With family, we have been “together” across the table or in the yards. I feel very appreciative to stay connected to each one of our children and grandchildren with whatever excuse it takes- (hikes, bday gift drop offs, doctor appointments with mom, etc.). We’ve learned to “blow out” neither the warmth nor…the candles!
After feeding time, an infant is fully satisfied and quieted with their mother. Am I fully satisfied and content with the Lord’s provision for me? I have partaken and remind myself to remain fully sated with God’s mercy and grace.
Amazingly, I don’t have to plan out the next meal because I trust His abundance is there for me. – Teresa #contentment #trust #hopeinOne #myprovider
Psalm 131:1-3 (ESV)
I Have Calmed and Quieted My Soul
A Song of Ascents. Of David.
131 O Lord, my heart is not lifted up;
my eyes are not raised too high;
I do not occupy myself with things
too great and too marvelous for me.
2 But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
like a weaned child with its mother;
like a weaned child is my soul within me.
3 O Israel, hope in the Lord
from this time forth and forevermore.
