Worms, Worms, Worms

I don’t do worms…especially not worms in my fridge.

When worms don’t get used at Kids Week, they come live at our house, waiting to be used as fishing bait.

And every time I open the fridge, there they are…clear container…crawling all over each other…making me gag (literally).

Weird thing…yesterday there were even worms in my quiet time. Let me explain (this will give you a glimpse into my scattered devotional life).

Lately I’ve been studying humility. So I entered “humility” in my ESV app on the Ipad and clicked on Zechariah 9.

Verse 12 stuck out to me-“Return to your stronghold, O prisoners of hope; today I declare that I will restore you double.”

Next I Googled “Zechariah 9:12 commentary” and found this awesome piece by Charles Spurgeon…

“It is very unsafe to judge our state by our feelings-they are poor, uncertain tests at the best-and they may greatly mislead us if we trust them. Let us, rather, go all together to the Cross whereon our Lord did hang and let us still go on with Him as we began at the first. Let each one of us cry unto Him, with Dr. Watts-‘A guilty, weak and helpless worm, On Your kind arms I fall! Be You my strength and righteousness, My Jesus, and my All’.”

May these slimy, nasty worms remind me of the kind arms of Jesus. May I go to the Cross and remember that He is my strength and righteousness.
