Psalms 61:2

This has been one of my favorite verses for quite some time. I use to read this as “when my heart is overwhelmed (in a negative way) lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” Only recently have I realized, this means whether my heart is overwhelmed with gratitude, sadness, worry, or joy- lead me to the rock that is higher than I! So many times in my happy moments I forget to give my joys to God, I thank Him, sure, but do I ever just sit and tell him the things I’m excited about? The things that make me happy? For He has made me in HIS image, and it would only make sense the same things that make my heart happy, would please His heart as well. I want to be diligent in letting Him know when my heart is overwhelmed with joy and thankfulness, for the Lord wants a relationship with us, a friendship. 


I hope you find many things to be thankful and joyous for today!
