I'm a horrible blogger, I know that about myself. So, after a several month break, I'm back! Hopefully I will be able to keep up with this better, but considering what my schedule looks like, I doubt it... One really quick thing I wanted to share because it has stuck with me all week and been on my mind, so in Julie-land that means it's a keeper! :) In Psalm 36 David is writing about God's faithfulness and love and I loved the way he worded it...
"Your unfailing love, O LORD, is as vast as the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
your justic like the ocean deapths."
I'm such a visual person that I loved how this gave me a frame of reference and a visual picture to begin to understand the depth and size of God's love, faithfulness, righteousness, and justice. I would be one of the first people to tell you that God is all of these things and so many more, but this helps me comprehend and grasp who He is so much better! I can tell you this, over the last few weeks I have experienced such a refreshing experience with God that I have seen all of these characteristics evident in my life, and I'm loving it! I'm so thankful that He unconditionally loves us and welcomes us back wholeheartedly when we wander or stumble away... It's beyond my understanding, but I'm so thankful to serve and love such an amazing Savior.
