“I was out of sorts.
They are deep, my sorts, a deep ditch, and I am not often out of them.”
― Samuel Beckett
(a lonely sheep wandering the hills of Slieve League, Co Donegal, Ireland / Julie Cook / 2015)
Out of tune
Out of step
Out of sync
Out of line
Out of rhythm
Out of sorts
Out of place
Out of control
Out of it…
But as for me, I am poor and needy;
may the Lord think of me.
You are my help and my deliverer;
you are my God, do not delay.
Beautiful words from the heart Jules. “…out of step…” I hear you. Thank You Lord, You are our help and deliverer:) I often cry like a sheep who has lost its way when I “feel” out of step or “feel” like I’ve lost my “warm and fuzzie” covering…Abba! Abba!! bhaa,bhaa, Abba! Oh how He speedily comes to rescue and deliverer! Thank You Lord, it’s not about how we “feel” or our “covering” but Yours! Bless Jules in a mighty way today, as she continues right in step with the heart of Yours:) blessings friend:)
Thank you Denise for such kind and thoughtful words of support!!! and I love the Abba—baaaaaaa 🙂
Where would I be without you Jesus? That is the question I ask myself all the time. Blessings and prayers for you, Julie, and for your family and for all those who are trying to put together a plan for care.
Isn’t that the truth—remembering that we do not venture forward alone is so crucial!!! I keep having to remind myself that I am not alone!!!!
Out of it maybe…………..but in Him the cookie will never crumble…………….
good stuff jewels
love it CS
That’s good to hear cookie! Cause we know its true
the roar of the lion during the storm, as truth triumphs over all…thank you my friend 🙂
Amen jewels- and that ‘loudness’ speaks quietly too eh, one with assurance of safety and love.
I can’t help but to hear the trumpet of ‘honesty’ when I hear that solitary roar as you mention. It is indescribable and full of awesomeness; so much like the Lord.
Best to ya.
Absolutely adore the opening quote. My sorts are deep at times too and I know yours are now. Even in the midst of all these trials, you are strong in the Lord and able to put together a powerful message that gives glory to Him. All that any of us can do, my friend, is hold onto Him for dear life and ride out the storm remembering that Grace is always with us and for us. Hang in there little sheep. The Lord will not let you down nor let you go. Love and hugs, N 🐑🐑🐑🐑
