Psalm 28:7 NLT

The LORD is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.

Unwavering trust

God’s definition

Living with enough


Jeremiah 32:40 NLT

And I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good for them. I will put a desire in their hearts to worship me, and they will never leave me.

Unending supply

Unfailing goodness to me

Steady commitment


Psalm 133:1 NLT

How wonderful and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony!

Contrasting unity

Blended sound


No fear

Matthew 10:30 NLT

And the very hairs on your head are all numbered.

The persistent message of our King is “don’t fear”. God sees and knows all that happens to even sparrows. He sees and knows us infinitely more. So, no fear, ever.

Loving Others

John 13:34 NLT
So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other.

Loving another

Unfolding beauty, grace, space

No hesitation

Fear of the Lord, Obedience, Joy

Psalm 112:1 NLT
Praise the LORD! How joyful are those who fear the LORD and delight in obeying his commands.

As we cannot separate reverencing the Lord from humility, we cannot separate reverencing Him from obedience and true joy. Each is woven into a solid whole. A mosaic which becomes a pristine picture. But, fragile to the point that when a piece is missing, the beauty is damaged.

Humility and Reverence

It seems to me that we cannot separate the fear of the Lord and humility. When the Lord is honestly revered, when we see Him with as much clarity that is possible, we are drawn to a deep humility. True humility cannot be manufactured any more than the fear of the Lord. Both depend on the heart that has been turned toward Him.
