Daily verse February 15

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭34:18‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Here’s the comfort we need. There’s a whole lot going on, some deep healing and uprooting and learning about the immensity of our Father’s love and our identity as His children. I don’t have words for it yet, so that is why I have been silent on the blog. Lots of ideas, a little time, but no fitting words yet. You’ll hear.

Daily verse February 6

“At the time of sacrifice, the prophet Elijah stepped forward and prayed: “Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command. Answer me, Lord, answer me, so these people will know that you, Lord, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again.” Then the fire of the Lord fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench.”
‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭18:36-38‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Daily verse January 31

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭23:4‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Reflection: though times are tough, with loved ones sick, financial stress or emotional and physical trauma, the Lord, yes, the Lord even Himself, is there always with His children. Always with us, helping us, comforting us, leading us through with His strong and loving arm. His hand is not too short for our problems, His love is not too little for our little things, every tear, David says, He collects in jars because it is precious to Him, in a loving way. He knows the number of the hairs on our head and He cares about His relationship with us. He knows our every thought and listens to every word we share with Him. I believe He loves every moment we talk to Him, seek Him, whether we talk about our day and things that bother us, things we are thankful for or we take a moment to listen. So let’s. Let’s seek Him, let’s reach out to Him. And you know what? He has always been there since the moment we came out of our mother’s belly, and maybe even before, but He is showing me and people around me that before we knew Him, He was already there with us. Through good times and bad, in health and also in sickness.
