Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling… Blessed are all who take refuge in him. ~ Psalm 2:11-12
I read this the other day and didn’t quite have the time to write about it here.
Reflecting on these 2 verses, I cannot help but think back to the many bumps and obstacles I have encountered in my life. My life is pretty dramatic. No kidding. But then again, I know for a fact, I’m not the only one with a dramatic life. God has never given me all I have asked for. But I trust and know that He has and will always give me what He thinks is best for me. My good friends can attest to this. They gape and laugh (perhaps) and shake their heads sadly and sit with me and watch me cry in times of trouble. And when I’m better, we look back and know that God is good.
I might not have the perfect life now, but hell, I have no complaints and what is the perfect life? It can definitely be better, no doubt. But I couldn’t ask for more.
But godliness with contentment is great gain, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. ~ 1 Timothy 6:6-7
