Moses and I

I was browsing through the Psalms late one night when, though I was not especially comprehending what was I was reading, a particular verse caught my eye. A prayer really. Of Moses:

"May the favor of the Lord our God
rest upon us;
establish the work of our hands for
us--
yes, establish the work of our
hands."


This prayer seemed to say what was on my mind and heart. It seemed that a prayer, which my heart was groaning out, had been translated to page by the Holy Spirit Himself. A prayer of the relation between Art and God and of myself, caught somewhere in the middle.

Maybe it showed me that God really does care about what I make with my hands and that maybe God is willing to "establish" it. Maybe that's why it caught my eye - even at 12:00 at night.

Wow. Don't you just love it when stuff like that happens?

That's cool! yeah, I like that verse. I think that's one of the things I strive for is to have my purpose in life to be established by God.
It's so cool when that kind of thing happens at the weirdest times, like in the middle of the night.
