At first I felt as though I wasn't "doing enough." Then I realized that, as I immersed myself in praise and worship music, the Lord was meeting me there. It's been a soul-satisfying experience. When I can concentrate again, I look forward to daily Bible reading, but for now this is good. In a way it feels like a very pure form of worship: spending time alone with God, thinking about His attributes, and praising Him for Who He is. In this season of trial and loss, keeping my focus on Him and His goodness has sometimes seemed like the only thing that pulled me through.
This week, as I've been looking forward instead of backward, I have been feeling as though I've walked out of one fire and into another. But that's a story for another day!
