Come let us worship and bow down

A friend recommended this book to me…Satisfy My Thirsty Soul by Linda Dillow. The verse in the opening chapter is Psalm 63:1

O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you;

My soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you,

In a dry and weary land where there is no water. (NIV)

Have you ever had a thirst like that? A thirst where you just longed for water to quench your parched throat? That is how we are to long after God. Earnestly seeking Him.

I’m not sure about you, but that is convicting to me. So many times my days move along at such a pace that I don’t earnestly seek Him.  This book is a 12 week practical study of satisfying your thirsty soul with God. This summer, it is my desire to work through this book and bring snippets and nuggets of truth to you the PEACH blog readers. Adding in the blog aspect will give me a level of accountability. If you’d like to join me–that would be great. Grab a copy of the book and let’s get started.

Dillow says that “Worship is the path to experiencing the presence of God, the way to face-to-face intimacy.” She goes on to say, “Worship is not just a specific act. It is also a lifestyle. Worship is a specific act of bowing my knees and declaring, ‘Holy, holy, holy.’ Worship is also a lifestyle of bowing my life and living ‘holy, holy, holy.'”

“Come let us worship and bow down, Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.” Psalm 95:6

Summer time

For homeschoolers summer means many different things.  Some continue their studies as usual, some do special unit studies, some take a break from formal learning and some are somewhere in between these options.  I’ve talked to some folks who are trying to finish up their year, others who are tackling household projects that they couldn’t get done during the year and yet others who are taking family vacations.

My focus this summer has been finishing up an insect unit study and completing some craft projects. I am also watching a couple extra children–which has made for some interesting times. It’s keeping me on my toes. I’ve made a schedule to help the day flow and have added the extra kids into our unit study.

Through the encouragement of friends, I’ve been meditating on Psalm 118:24

“This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

Apart from Him, I can do nothing. And I’m being reminded that my plans are not always His plans. So I need to keep my mind focused on Him.

What plans does the Lord have for your summer?

Cup of Blessing

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is Gods handwriting–a wayside sacrament. Welcome if in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower and thank God for it…as a cup of blessing. Ralph Waldo Emerson
