But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in You... ~ Psalm 40:16aI was quoting this the other day and had to pause right after the "But may all who seek You" due to some interruption. God-given interruption. [Aren't they all?] Anyway, when I got back to it and tried to remember where I had left off, I started the verse again "But may all who seek You"... Wait! That's me -- I seek You! And suddenly, I was like "But may Aidan..." what? What? Rejoice and be glad. Not may she take it easy or be comfortable or do this or that.
I am simply to rejoice and be glad in God. And that is totally outside the circumstantial realm. Rejoice and be glad in God no matter what what lies before me or I'm facing.
