Day 55

PICTURE: school is closed. This is the view out of my window at 7:30 this morning. It looks so pretty but the road is coated with ice. So, school is closed for the 6th time since Christmas Break. UGH....ready for a full week with no delays or closings. But, happy to have a morning to read and catch up with friends.

READING: Deuteronomy 9-11. From my 55 days of reading, I have realized something. Just reading the account of the Israelites is enough to make me want to worship God! He didn't have to do any of the things He did, but God loves his children and wants the best for them. Who am I not to worship God and obey him?! I want to share a chunk that really hit me. I hope you take the time to read it all and soak up all that God has done.

Deuteronomy 10:14-22
To the LORD your God belong the heavens, even the highest heavens, the earth and everything in it. Yet the LORD set his affection on your ancestors and loved them, and he chose you, their descendants, above all the nations—as it is today. Circumcise your hearts, therefore, and do not be stiff-necked any longer. For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes. He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing. And you are to love those who are foreigners, for you yourselves were foreigners in Egypt. Fear the LORD your God and serve him. Hold fast to him and take your oaths in his name. He is the one you praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes. Your ancestors who went down into Egypt were seventy in all, and now the LORD your God has made you as numerous as the stars in the sky.
