I know I have a lot to do in the morning, getting ready for work in a van. As a van dweller, everything is more cramped, hard to do and I have to drive for coffee, food, shower, and everything else. Not much I can do in a van except sit and be hot in this weather we’re having here in the Pacific Northwest, near Lynnwood, Washington. It’s been 80 degrees in my van and I’ve had to look for shade every day for this past week to try and get out of the son.
But, I ordered a John MacArthur Study Bible that I am enjoying today at the library, where I can finally sit at a desk and read my bible comfortably. They have air conditioning here and that’s good.
Scripture I’m reading is Psalm 61 (ESV), “Lead Me To The Rock”, which says,
Hear my cry, O God,
listen to my prayer;
from the end of the earth I call to you
when my heart is faint.
Lead me to the rock
that is higher than I,
for you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the enemy.
Let me dwell in your tent forever!
Let me take refuge under the shelter
of your wings!
For you, O God, have heard my vows;
you have given me the heritage of
those who fear your name.
Prolong the life of the king;
may his years endure to all generation!
May he be enthroned forever before
appoint steadfast love and faithfulness
to watch over him!
So will I ever sing praises to your name,
as I perform my vows day after day.
Today I am in God’s arms, wrapped in love and caringness of His kind ways. He sees me from Heaven, knows my name and gives me shelter.
He is My Rock.
