The Reason

05:00

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. |Psalm 18:2|

I am not always consistent.

 

People around me are not always consistent.

 

The world I live in is not always consistent.

 

And I need something above myself, beyond myself, and better than myself to show me that I can hope for better. I can be better. And I can do better. 

 

I can’t always find safety even within trusted circles. The Bible says the human heart is “desperately wicked.” We don’t always know why we do the things we do. And our emotions sometimes cause us to say and do things we never thought we would.  And so, to me, God becomes a safe bet, a safe place.  He protects me from forces unseen; he sometimes reveals secrets and hidden things in darkness. In His correction, I learn to become a better woman. In His revelation, I learn to hope for better: for myself, for my people, for my countries, for my future.
