Psalm 61:4 Let me dwell in Your tent forever; Let me take refuge in the shelter of Your wings. Selah.
Settle for… nothing but God’s best.
Settle down….. abide in peace where you are.
Settle into… a routine that brings you closer to God.
The word has a touch of home. A taste of joy. A view of the undersides of God’s wings. Be still my heart so I can hear His.
To be drawn into the joyful contentment of God’s presence is a delight we are allowed to experience in this life. Just a hint of what awaits us when we pass from this world to the next.
Moving, transfers, relocation, all bump and jostle the happy hunkered down feeling I long to live in. Just when I’m feeling at ease driving around a place it seems that we begin again in a new unfamiliar place.
As followers Christ we are called to traverse terrain we wouldn’t normally go. Ministry does that and we are all called into ministry as followers of Jesus.
My particular call is to come alongside my pastor-husband and support him as he shepherds our little flock. Whatever the Lord provides for me in that situation settles me, as long as it come from Him. That doesn’t mean it’s not full of surprises, or stretches my abilities, or teeters me on the very brink of my comfort zone.
As long as I know that I am in the will and calling of God, I’m in THE BEST place on earth!
In this life the Lord will build our endurance going higher up for a peek at heavenly vistas, unattainable at the lowlands.
He will escort us to the dark caverns of suffering to show us where the priceless jewels of faith are mined.
I take great comfort and encouragement in the testimonies of those who have run their race with endurance to the very end. Those who have trusted God wholly and found Him wholly true.
I am grateful for your life as you discover the blessings endowed to anyone who wholeheartedly lives life for Jesus, to the glory of His Name.
This thought on the word, 'settle,' is brought to you by the writer's community at Five Minute Friday and...... me. Try it, you'll like it! Set the timer for five minutes on Friday and write from the heart. Share it with the group. If you write a little longer or can't get to it until Monday......that's okay, too.
