Psalm 42:1 – As a deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.
John 10:27 – My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.
2 Thessalonians 3:16 – Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with you all.
Daniel 3:17a – If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it…
Daniel 3:18a – But even if he does not…
Psalm 23:1 – The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
The six verse above, all taken from the New International Version of the Bible, sum of my faith in ways I could not articulate.
I used to be upset that I didn’t have a huge redemption story of lightening bolt amazement. I used to fear I wasn’t God’s child because I couldn’t put my finger on the exact moment He came into my life. I used to feel that I had no testimony.
Then one day, as gently as the trees wave their branches to their Creator, a Breeze filled my soul and washed over me in a way nothing had before or since, and I KNEW. I knew I am a child of God.
I don’t need a great, splashy story. I don’t need a faith I can explain. All I need is my God, my Creator, my Strength, my Wisdom, my Shepherd, my Guide, my Savior.
No matter where I am in life, no matter what is going on around me. No matter if God says “no” to one of my deepest prayers, no matter what, God is and I am.
May you open yourself up to the peace and love of God, and may they flow into your soul now and forevermore.
See you next time,
