I heard a monologue given from the viewpoint of Simeon years ago and it struck me. Then the other day I read this over at another pastors' blog.
And well, again, God is challenging me with some stuff from Simeon again. What is my hope built on? What am I looking forward to? Would I follow if I was "moved by the Spirit" (vs27)? How big a deal is Jesus?
There's about a zillion other questions that start to pop into my head, but then I breathe deep and remind myself that this Jesus; He loves me. As I am. He wants me to know him. So I dust myself off and move forward, thankful for the grace and mercy he has for me.
Today was a good day, I'm off to bed. Good night folks.
