Chair Time

Psalm 90: 12, 14

So teach us to number our days, That we may present to You a heart of wisdom...O satisfy us in the morning with your lovingkindness, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.

Last year for Christmas my husband bought me an amazing chair and a half with a matching ottoman. I have always wanted one. This is the place I meet with the Lord in the early morning hours when the house is silent and my little ones have not yet discovered that I am awake. I love to sneak downstairs (do you do that too?) and curl up with my cup of Komodo Dragon Starbucks Coffee,my Bible, a journal, and some Kari Jobe on my Ipod.

He is always there, waiting for me. Many times lately, I have not made our appointment. But patiently He waits for me. He has so much He wants to teach me and pour into my heart. I was most struck this week by Psalm 90: 12 & 14 and I know that I need it to be written on my heart! My cry to the Lord is that each morning I would find my satisfaction in Him.. and sing for joy and be glad all day long...not looking for a person to satisfy me, not looking for circumstances, but just satisfied by Him. Every single morning.

Most mornings I am discovered by a 3 foot tall messy haired girl who is dragging a blanket and a large stuffed bumble bee. She snuggles up close to me and I am reminded why I am in the chair in the first place.

Looking Forward,

I am linking up to Chatting at the Sky for "Tuesday Unwrapped". This is truly a lovely blog that has encouraged my heart!


  1. I love that your daughter finds you in the Word. What a great model you are for her.

  2. What a beautiful post. I hope your chair time continues to be life giving and simply lovely. Thank you for the reminder that He is always waiting for us. I love that image and that truth.

  3. Good Morning. Beautiful post here. Don't you love it when He meets you right where you wait for Him?! :) And, what a good example of "waiting" your daughter sees when she sees you there.

    I responded to your comment at my end. Thank you for stopping in this morning.
