God used Psalm 73 to bring me joy today. He comforted and reassured my heart. It was a tender moment in the middle of my day when I happened to be in my bedroom and saw my Bible. I remembered I hadn’t read it yet today, and since I had a few minutes before my next appointment, I flopped on the bed and opened it to my bookmark. I’ve been reading the Psalms since summer. It was all very happenstance and unplanned. I thought I would read and go on with my day. I didn’t have any expectations….but God spoke to me in the very core of my unsettled, somewhat torn and tumultuous heart, at the place of some of my greatest struggles with identity, insecurity, jealousy and bitterness. He gently spoke His love, hope and encouragement to me.
My day went on in all of its normalcy, but the joy of being reminded of God’s care for me remained in the middle of it all.
