The book of Psalms is so entertaining to me because, regardless of what translation I experience it through, the imagery evoked and the beautiful poetry and songs bring about such an intense feeling every time.
When God designed me He didn’t make mistakes. I know He very intentionally chose for me to lack the ability to reach things sitting on the top shelf of the kitchen, I know he instilled in me a love for all things coffee-related, and I especially know he gave me a heart for being a servant of his.
I could feel a sense of urgency building inside me all day long, and I didn’t know why. When I got home, I laced up my tennis shoes and headed outside, hoping for some clarity. I took some deep breaths and prayed as my feet hit the pavement, “What’s going on inside me today, Lord?”.
