In Psalm 39, verses one through five, David writes, “I said to myself, ‘I will watch what I do and not sin in what I say. I will hold my tongue when the ungodly are around me.’ But as I stood there in silence–not even speaking of good things–the turmoil within me grew worse. The more I thought about it, the hotter I got, igniting a fire of words: ‘Lord remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered–how fleeting my life is. You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand. My entire lifetime is just a moment to you; at best, each of us is just a breath.”
These are very somber words from David tonight, and I really related to them, as last night I had a similar experience to what he is talking about. I found myself very angry, and I tried to soothe myself but I just became angry and kept muttering to myself about the situation and kept putting off writing.
Finally I sat down to do my blogs, and by the time I was done with my writing and my videos I had a sense of peace that came as a surprise to me. I didn’t expect this to happen, but focusing on the Bible had totally alleviated my angst.
It reminded me that I don’t have within myself what I need to quiet my spirit, but God and Christ do have it, and if I focus on them and their teachings and words of wisdom, and devote my time to them, I will be given what I need.
I literally spent several hours last night fuming and trying to quiet my mind from all the unrest, and I could not do it alone. But just a couple hours of reading and writing about God and Jesus and their teachings healed my restless spirit completely. It was a wonderful lesson to me, one that I hope I never forget.
