Quarantines & Prayer – 11/5/21





My, Pastor Scott’s, quarantine, due to exposure NOT a positive test, was supposed to be complete today (11/5); but there was a positive test of another member of our household, who is relatively (mostly) asymptomatic on 11/1; so now I’m on quarantine through 11/10 (see top of Ven Diagram) and none too happy about it (see bottom right).

As I was sitting here in my home office, grumbling, God reminded me that it’s not unlike the wilderness experiences He took many of His people through (mine’s just a lot more cushy).

As I was reading various wilderness writings, I came across Psalm 63, which David writes as he’s in the wilderness hiding out from Saul (or Absalom). It’s a mostly a song of praise and affirmation of his faith in God. In the middle of it he writes:

Because Your lovingkindness is better than life,
My lips will praise You.
So I will bless You as long as I live;
I will lift up my hands in Your name.
My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness,
And my mouth offers praises with joyful lips.

When I remember You on my bed,
I meditate on You in the night watches

As I “keep watch” here in this office – I can read, and write, but I will have lots of time to pray!!

Please let me know how I can pray to be praying for you!!
