How abundant is your goodness...

The ESV website has a feature that sends you an email every day in a year with the intent to read the Bible throughout the year. In the email it gives you an OT passage, a passage from Psalms and Proverbs and a passage from the NT. I like this service because it also gives you the option of listening to the passages as well. Lately, I've been following along the Psalms section of it and today's passage was timely and reminding me of God's goodness and his steadfast love towards me.

Psalm 31:19-34
Oh, how abundant is your goodness,
which you have stored up for those who fear you
and worked for those who take refuge in you,
in the sight of the children of mankind!
In the cover of your presence you hide them from the plots of men;
you store them in your shelter from the strife of tongues.
Blessed be the Lord,
for he has wondrously shown his steadfast love to me
when I was in a besieged city.
I had said in my alarm,“I am cut off from your sight.”
But you heard the voice of my pleas for mercy
when I cried to you for help.
Love the Lord, all you his saints!
The Lord preserves the faithful
but abundantly repays the one who acts in pride.
Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the Lord!

This past week, some new developments occurred with house buying that I needed to remind myself that these new developments were not new to God and they are all part of His plan.

The good news is I'm preapproved! So one part is done. I just need to find an agent and a house! The good part about finding a house is there has been alot of houses in the area I am looking to move into that have come up on the market.

Please continue to pray for wisdom for decisions I have to make and for favorable relationships with everyone involved.

Preapproved! That's great Sara.
Now the fun can begin looking for your new home. Well, I should say it can be fun but not always is. Keep your sense of humor about you as you look. It's always interesting how house ads are worded and then you see the house and realize what certain things really mean. I'll pray for just the right home for you. And thanks for your thoughts on my blog. It's a good idea.
