Some Bible verses can always make me smile.
Psalms 84:11 is one of those verses.
Today it cheered me through a cloudy rainy morning.
God is a sun and shield. That translates to warmth and protection.
He gives favor and honor. Also known as grace and glory.
God doesn’t hold back anything good from us when we’re trying to walk with Him.
And I’m trying.
Some days I need to lean hard on these thoughts.
Like coffee beans rolling around in a roasting drum, the words tumble over in my mind.
I work them like dough I’m kneading.
Over and over, pulling and stretching.
Rolling up within them the problems and challenges of my life.
I do believe God has an answer for everything that happens to us.
A promise, a solution, a prescription, a warning.
And on a ‘bad day’ I admit I spend a lot more time looking for His answer.
Looking for Him.
He’s always there.
And that’s the best way I’ve found to turn a bad day into a good one.
