You can drink anything your herat desires but ultimately, you will crave water and will always return to it. The same with God. You can move away from God and live in this earthly world but ultimately, you will return to the only one that can quench the thirst of our soul. PJSLB
When my daughters ask something of me or tell me their concerns, they are looking for reaffirmation that everything will be alright. When I assure them that everything will be alright or calm their fears, they are embolden with confidence because they know “I have their back.” The same can be said with our relationship with God. When we approach God, we should be emboldened to know that everything will work out because we have approached our father.
Have a great Friday and weekend everyone. Be safe and know that everything is in the Lords hands. PJSLB
A song of ascents.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
I love how even reading the bible for all these years, you can still come across something that you have never read. What a beautiful verse to read as as arrive to Manila from Guam.
