This year I picked the following Bible verse to be my guide for the year:
Though the fig tree does not bud
and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
and no cattle in the stalls,
18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will be joyful in God my Savior.
19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to tread on the heights.
For the director of music. On my stringed instruments.
I learned a lesson – be careful what verse you pick to guide you through life or a season of life. Because the fig trees, grapes, olives,sheep and cattle are not in my life. In fact, I am finding I have to let go of things. The main thing is letting go of my dead computer (working from the library today) and home phone and internet.
I thought a new job would stabilize my life and in some ways it has as I get to keep my house. But I have to let my dead computer, home phone and internet service go as the money is not in the budget for those things – and they are things.
So one door has closed which hopefully means another one will open. What door that will be I do not know. Although as I look out the library window, it looks like that door is more snow. (ugh!) And it is coming down fast and furious.
I will post from the library every now and then as time in my new life permits.
But for now, it is time to go home and snuggle up with a good book or movie resting comfortably in the assurance I have a roof over my head – after I rejoice and give thanks to God despite the latest “crop failures” in life.
God Bless You.
