Fresh Sheets

Jul 12

Every Saturday morning I change the sheets on our bed.  I love the feeling of fresh clean sheets when I stretch out at the end of a long day.  This morning I was pulling off the old sheets when I realized the newness of fresh sheets is the same feeling God brings.  When we are feeling a little fuzzy and worn, we can go to Him.  The Almighty strips us of the old insecurities and sinful nature, and He cleanses us and makes us new.

Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.  I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”  Lamentations 3:22-24 NIV

This week I’m worn and fuzzy.  If you’ve read my previous post you know one of my friends tried to commit suicide.  I’ve worried and prayed for her all week.  I’ve been rejected.  Twice. One rejection even told me my writing wasn’t engaging.  ouch.  My girlfriend Amy‘s son has had four seizures.  Yes, I said four.  In one week.  So, sweet friends, at the end of this week, I am left feeling weary and worn.  I need fresh sheets.  
This song is my heart’s cry today.  My friend Kimberly posted it a long time ago, and I loved it.  If you don’t have time to listen, read the lyrics.  I love how she says, “I have to” instead of  “I need to” or “I should.”  Have to means you have no other choice.  There is no option but to praise.   Friends, I have no other option but to praise.  Won’t you join me?
