The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places...

Yesterday, after coming back from the hospital at tea-time, picking Mum's elderly cat up on the way, I had chance to finally sit and think about what had happened and its implications, but by this time tiredness had brought with it a sense of peace. I thought of the verse in Psalm 15(16) v 6: The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; I have a goodly heritage. How difficult it is at times like this to acknowledge that God has drawn my boundary lines in "pleasant places"!! But He sees this situation from above, on the beautiful side of the tapestry so to speak, whereas I see only the messy knotted threads underneath. I'm not saying that this is a pleasant place for my Mum, but it has to be God's will for me, and God's will is for His glory and my good. I have written this verse on my heart, as I have also Deuteronomy 33:12 which I blogged about last time.

Once again, a picture speaks to my heart. The above is a scene of beauty, and yet the sky isn't blue and clear of clouds. In fact it's a dark, heavy, brooding sky. But there is a light threaded through it, a promise of God's mercy, a reminder that God's beauty and purpose shine through in the darkest places, even when a deluge threatens. Just writing this and reflecting on the picture, I am full of hope ~ GOD IS GOOD!


  1. I read this on your blog & was struck by the verse which I don't remember hearing before..thanks so much for posting..prayers assured.

  2. I had never heard this verse before so I had to go and look it up! Yes, reminds me that often- especially when life is less than kind and we feel alone....we never really are.
    Blessings and prayers,
