This morning I rolled out of bed and popped on Facebook. My normal habit is to read the Bible before doing anything else, but I had asked hubby if we could take a walk. He had already been up for awhile and was in the middle of something on his computer. So I decided to check my email and read updates on Facebook while waiting for hubby.
One of the updates on Facebook made me mad. Hubby and I spent almost our entire walk talking (or for me, venting) about various issues. I got home and was in a tizzy! Not a good way to start the day when I'm trying to cultivate a heart like God's and be respectful toward my husband. I keep reminding myself "demure, you can be demure..."
As soon as we got home, I spent time in God's word like I should have before I left. I was chastised. My reading took me to Psalm 107. In that chapter alone, four times does the psalmist remind people to praise God.
"Oh, that men would praise the Lord for his goodness,
and for his wonderful works to the children of men!"
(vs. 8, 15, 21, 31).
Oh that I would praise the Lord instead of getting caught up in the ways of this world! God is very good and it's too easy to forget His wonderful works! Oh that I would praise the Lord...
