Sometimes we are thinking more clearly than others. Two days in a row, we visited friends who were ill. They remembered the second visit but not the first. Funny, they had sounded lucid and told their story as though they were fully present both days.
When I am tired I don't always make the best decisions. I'm a snap-judgment person, looking at my surroundings for pragmatic solutions. The room looks empty, what could complete it? That fellow looks lonely, who is around to talk to him? She wants work, who has a job opening? What fits where? It can be a challenge to think beyond a narrow focus of question and answer to all possible implications of an action.
Today I happily acknowledging that only God knows everything. When we are weary, overwhelmed, or off balance, he teaches and cares for us. When we are alert and at our best, he cheers us on. The best thing is that he always loves us, though he knows us inside and out.
*Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. Psalm 95:1-7 NIV
*For "All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord remains forever." And this word is the good news that was preached to you. 1 Peter 1:24-25 NLT
