And indeed, I felt this way as I pulled something from my closet
1 By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept
when we remembered Zion.
2 There on the poplars
we hung our harps,
3 for there our captors asked us for songs,
our tormentors demanded songs of joy;
they said, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!”
4 How can we sing the songs of the LORD
while in a foreign land?
Strange to us is not always strange to God. Can’t go if we haven’t gone through things. Can say I’ve seen the lord.
Divine Providence (prophet?) God has manipulated th chain of events to get is from here to there. Joseph and his brothers.
No matter how bad the situation looks all things work together for God.
To sing the Lords song in a strange land we need to focus on what’s in us, not around us.
God puts you in situations so it can show up. Don’t do all the studying without being tested.
Focused on what wad around but not in them (storm on boat).
Baked potato analogy. Wash, poke with a fork, before exploding.
Only reason God stuck us is because we are getting ready to go to the next level.
Know how to handle it because this isn’t the first time. But he’s the same god yesterday. Didn’t brin me this far to leave me. If he was going to leave me, he would have left me in the casino, bar etc
Be careful how you handle your heart. Every now and then you need to encourage yourself. Need to learn how to call on the lord inside of you. David getting stoned. N weapon formed against me shall prosper. Can do all things through Christ.
Good things cone from a bad situation. You learn how to walk by faith, not sight. Trust god, get up one more time when you fall down. Abraham Moses
When you just aint feeling it, don’t have to be a super Christian. Remember what’s strange to you isn’t strange to god. Remember where you hang your harp. Pull out what’s in you.
Whatever your going through you are not alone.
