5          928 More surprise sales
            929 Psalms 43:4 KJV Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God. Today I am blessed to tears. Today is another day God has told me to paint. I have been waiting and waiting. And I knew today was the day, but He told me to do it after morning Bible study- as much as I wanted to get out of bed and immediately get to it. I obeyed and was indeed blessed. The very last paragraph of today's study brought me to this verse Ps 43:4. This verse is precious to me because of a study I was in a while back. The point was made that to worship God, just like in playing harp, requires stretching, reaching and moving. I painted this plate 5 years ago as a reminder of that point. Painting was the first way he had me “play my harp” – all the strings – using all my skills for Him. Stretching, reaching. God has brought me full circle and continues to amaze me. So blessed today.
