I said to the Lord, “You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.”-Psalm 16:2
Throughout scripture the word of God is living and breathing. It is truly a living organism, even when it’s in a bible app on your iphone. The bible is not just a collection of history lessons, heroic tales and pithy comments from Jesus. It is relevant to today’s society and your own personal circumstances and not in a vague newspaper horoscope of the day kind of a way, but in a way that can create a solid relationship between you and God, giving you wisdom, hope and a life with purpose.
I spent the first 20 years of my life trying to find something, anything to fill the MISSING PIECE
Booze, books, food, money, men. Instant gratification that never made me completely full. I always hungered for more, more, more. Fantasizing when my life would get better. Dreaming of the day when dot dot dot. Wishing but not praying. Dreaming instead of doing. God works supernaturally. He works in all time at the same time. When we realize the crux of the matter, when we realize nothing on God’s green earth will ever fully satisfy and when we realize the missing piece is Jesus Christ, life takes on meaning. Purpose. Value. Relationships get stronger, beauty becomes more vibrant, self-worth becomes less about self and more about Him. This gives us power, satisfaction, contentment and the courage to roll on our own because it suddenly becomes clear we are NEVER alone. David introduces us to Jesus centuries before He was born. Couldn’t we suppose the truth that God is speaking to us, about us and through us using His word as the tool? Try it. Get in the Word and see the truths.
Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,
because you will not abandon me to the grave,
nor will you let your Holy One see decay.
You have made known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand. -Psalm 16:9-11/blockquote>
