"As for God, his way is perfect;
the word of the Lord is flawless.
He is a shield
for all who take refuge in Him.
For who is God besides the Lord?
And who is the Rock except our God?
It is God who arms me with strength
and makes my way perfect.
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
he enables me to stand on the heights."
Psalm 18: 30-33
Look back at my recent posts and see the reoccurring theme of the deer.
Today was my LAST 10 mile mid-week long run. Mel ran the first 5 with me and then I was on my own. Yesterday while praying, I was weeping and pleading for God to draw me close and reveal Himself to me. I asked for His perfect will to be the rule of my life.
As I ran down a short street to a cul de sac-----5 deer ran across the road in front of me. They turned and crossed back over the road again in just a few seconds. One of the babies had gotten behind, and his Mother turned again and they all crossed one more time in front of me---all protecting "The Baby" who was behind. I was SO thankful for this glimpse of God and a reminder that He is protecting me. He is faithful.
I turned around at the end of the street and then one deer and one deer only -the largest of the 5 crossed in front of me again. He ran slowly and then walked up and down the fence row as I ran by. Almost as if he wanted to be sure that I had seen Him.
I DO see Him and my eyes are fixed upon Him. What a blessing!
