“When my heart was grieved and my spirit embittered, I was senseless and ignorant; I was a brute beast before you. Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Those who are far from you will perish; you destroy all who are unfaithful to you. But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.”
- In my weakness I have sought pleasure in worldly things throughout my life, but in His goodness and mercy God has shown me that peace and joy are only found in Him. It is not where you have been, it is where you are going; and it is not who you were, it is who you are. It is the continual knowledge, praise, and seeking of God that brings peace. We should go into every trial, tribulation, and battle knowing the victory that is promised through our Lord, Jesus Christ. Through Jesus Christ, God is available to all who seek Him.
- What will you choose to live your life by and base your future on?
- Do you have a faith and focus that God is always with you and your eternity is secure with Him?
- Who or what is guiding you on this earth and what is waiting for you when you leave?
