“But I will sing of your strength;
I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning.
For you have been to me a fortress
and a refuge in the day of my distress.
O my Strength, I will sing praises to you,
for you, O God, are my fortress,
the God who shows me steadfast love.”
Eric, Poppa, Dill and I are getting ready to knock out a level 2 certification this weekend at Coffee’s gym.
After a pretty crazy day of traveling to try and get from Dallas to Atlanta (shouldn’t be that hard: Don’t fly Spirit ever) I found myself last night sitting in the hotel room wishing I were back home with Megan as I sat on yet another hotel comforter.
I found myself in Psalm 59 chasing the comfort of the Lord. At the end of the Psalm, David writes about what gives him comfort and it was a great reminder to me. The steadfast love of the Lord is what David runs to. It’s easy for me to try and find comfort in my job (mainly because I love it so much) or even my wife (because I love her so much) but David reminds me here in Psalm 59 that putting my comfort and hope in anything other than God’s faithfulness is futile and fleeting. Last night, that faithfulness showed up in a big way to remind me that He is my fortress and refuge. I can find comfort and rest in Him.
Nothing crazy. Just a good reminder and one I need to hear often.
Then I saw that our fantasy league left Julius Thomas undrafted… I picked him up in a hurry.
