Have you told Him lately that you love Him? I love Him and that love grows sweeter everyday as I learn to trust Him and live for Him.
Today I went to visit a lady in our church who suffers from depression. She is in the hospital now because she wasn't able to cope. As I left her today, I cried. Not because she was doing poorly, or because she was to be pitied. She was actually doing much better today than the last time I saw her.
I cried because I let my circumstances get me down way too much. I forget how much I need to trust the Lord. Why should anyone be down who has Jesus? He loves us so much, He died for us. Can't I trust Him much more than I do? Someone who gives His life for you should be trusted.
Thank you, Lord, for that reminder!
... These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off and were PERSUADED of them, and EMBRACED them, and CONFESSED that they were STRANGERS and PILGRIMS on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country... But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
