It's almost the weekend and I know many of you embrace it:) Some of my friends have had a hard week - one in the E.R., another dealing with a difficult boss, sick children, a big bill, a misunderstanding, a dream on hold, etc. In each of our lives there is always so much happening, both good and bad. One of the most profound things I ever heard anyone say was on Beth Moore's amazing blog, http://livingproofministries.blogspot.com. Not long ago her daughter Melissa made the comment, "He (God) knows it's hard to be us." Those simple words spoke to me in a way many sermons never have.
Ever read the Bible and stumble across a verse you've never seen before and it really ministers to you in a huge way? That happened this week. Sometimes I think He hides certain Scripture from us till we really need it. Or our spiritual vision improves and we appreciate it:) Maybe this is as much for you as it is for me:
Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in Him, for He shields Him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between His shoulders. Deuteronomy 33:12 (NIV)
If you're tired today, take comfort from this verse. I know I have. I'd love to hear some Scripture that speaks to you.
