Some time ago I wrote about, just standing still by someone to comfort. This is counting for my 5 things that made me happy.
I think I mentioned a million and one times that my friends sort of disappeared. They are busy, specially over season as this is a farming community. Some of it is I suppose my fault as well, I did not go to visit them and on the other hand, I cannot drive anymore and to get my family to drive me around to visit is another matter all together, but I suppose they are busy too and my husband is complaining about using too much petrol, unless he go and visit his friend, which is an uncle, which I suppose does not count and now I suppose I should shut up about that.
This morning me and hubby went to church for a change and was early as usual. The next moment a friend of mine, her name is also Elmarie, came to me. I was still standing in the passage, She asked me how I was and I started crying of cause as you might have guessed. She told me she missed me and loves me and then gave me a hug. She is much younger than me, but she serves the Lord with all her heart. I asked how her kids was, they were in my Aftercare center and then told her about the dementia. She gave me another hug and told me that all I ever have to remember is how much God loves me. Sometimes we forget.
When I got home I found a text message on my phone with the next bible passage:
Psalm 63 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Thirsting for God
63 For the Pure and Shining One
King David’s song when he was exiled in the Judean wilderness
1 O God of my life, I’m lovesick for you in this weary wilderness.
I thirst with the deepest longings to love you more,
with cravings in my heart that can’t be described.
Such yearning grips my soul for you, my God!
2 I’m energized every time I enter
your heavenly sanctuary to seek more of your power
and drink in more of your glory.
3 For your tender mercies mean more to me than life itself.
How I love and praise you, God!
4 Daily I will worship you passionately and with all my heart.
My arms will wave to you like banners of praise.
5 I overflow with praise when I come before you,
for the anointing of your presence satisfies me like nothing else.
You are such a rich banquet of pleasure to my soul.
6–7 I lie awake each night thinking of you
and reflecting on how you help me like a father.
I sing through the night under your splendor-shadow,
offering up to you my songs of delight and joy!
8 With passion I pursue and cling to you.
Because I feel your grip on my life,
I keep my soul close to your heart.
9 Those who plot to destroy me shall descend into the darkness of hell.
10 They will be consumed by their own evil
and become nothing more than dust under our feet.[a]
11 These liars will be silenced forever!
But with the anointing of a king I will dance and rejoice
along with all his lovers who trust in him.
And this song: https://youtu.be/IUhJNA0XGqc from Chris Tomlin.
Only Jesus knows our hearts and can do things like this. Send and angel to comfort you. I so love God and you should too. Another song: https://youtu.be/SAhlIHCZw5A In Moments like these a love song to the Lord of Lords.
Much love and kindness
