Deuteronomy 32:10-11 (NIV)
I journal a lot about what is going on in my life. Not only here. I have a journal, with actual paper in it, where I record some more intimate stuff. Often I will look back on that journal and reflect on an entry that I wrote during an intense or painful time. I love to read what scriptures I was led to read during that time. Yesterday, I was looking back at what I wrote about year ago and found the scripture above recorded. I thought at the time it applied to someone else in my life. Looking back now, I realize that the scripture also applied to me. It always does.
10 In a desert land he found him,
in a barren and howling waste.
He shielded him and cared for him;
he guarded him as the apple of his eye,
11 like an eagle that stirs up its nest
and hovers over its young,
that spreads its wings to catch them
and carries them on its pinions.
I pulled some words from above and filled in my name. Now, you try - fill in your name where mine is.
He found Janel.
He shielded Janel.
He cared for Janel.
He guarded Janel.
Janel is the apple of his eye. - love thatHe hovers over Janel.
He catches Janel.
He carries Janel.
