Job 1:21 KJV — And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.
These words speak so deeply of a truth I have a hard time learning.
But I love them.
And I am learning.
Today, we are having a moving sale.
It will be open tomorrow as well and I’m praying for understanding that nothing belongs to me.
Not even myself.
Because my tendency is to hold on to stuff.
After as many moves as I’ve had throughout my adult life, I was expecting to find it easy by now.
But it still is a lesson I’m having to put into practice.
Because our new home is much smaller than this one, a lot of things have to go.
But I know it’s for the best.
I trust God with all.
As I stopped for a break in the middle of our preparations, I was struck by the phrase:
“…blessed be the name of the LORD.”
Because that’s what everything comes down to.
God is worthy of all glory, all honor, all praise.
His name is blessed!
Psalm 113:2 KJV — Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for Your character, which is holy, just, and righteous. Thank You for being worthy of all praise, honor, and glory. Truly, Your name is the greatest treasure. Your salvation the only thing worth clinging to. Thank You for the reminder. I love You, Jesus! Blessed be Your name!! Amen.
