I woke this morning with a grateful heart. My life, if viewed upon a big screen, would probably seem insignificant. I don’t possess a stellar IQ, my contribution to the furtherance of humanity has been minimal. I’m not a genius. No one will stand around the water cooler and whisper, “I wish I was that guy.” My knowledge of the world can’t fill the smallest chasm in said earth, but I do know some small amount of Scripture that I learned as a small boy.
When life pressures me, I lean on the written word of God Almighty. Take Psalms 23:1: “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.” What a great comfort it is to know that the Lord will provide me with what I need. To know that He walks with me. One of my personal favorites is Psalms 46:1: “God is our refuge and strength; a very present help in trouble.”
I have always told people, “I don’t need any help getting into trouble, I can find it all by myself.” It is of great comfort to know when I am in trouble, God is in my corner. He is my refuge from the storms of life. There is an old gospel song whose lyrics go something like this: “He walks with me and He talks with me, and He tells me I am His own.”
No matter what transpires in this life, Jesus has the future well in hand. He is soon to return, and I want to be ready to meet Him.
God bless you all.
