Hello! This morning I woke up with a huge void that only God can fill. I think this past week just flew past me and left me empty and drained. So I took my Bible and my iPod and my nikes and went for a long walk to my favorite coffee shop. It was wonderful. We all go through times and things that takes the breath out of us. That dims the light in our eyes and makes our hearts heavy. If that is you today, then read on.
I just realized that because we can't SEE God, that doesn't mean that He is not there. Thomas wanted to see and feel Jesus. He wanted some answers now. And know what? John 20: 29 Jesus said (to Thomas) "So, you believe because you've seen with your own eyes. Even better blessings are in store for those who believe without seeing." That's what faith means: simply perceiving/trusting that God is... even if we don't see Him. Yet, above all, God is our salvation. Man will betray you and let you down. But He will not. I think as believers we are constantly faced with the decision to make Him number one and not any man/woman/child/things. This is GOOD news. Isa 12: 2"Yes, indeed—God is my salvation. I trust, I won't be afraid. God—yes God!—is my strength and song, best of all, my salvation!"
God is the only answer to all our questions. May those of us who seek a bit of heaven today find it in a quiet place... at His feet.
Have a wonderful weekend.
