“What a stack of blessing you have piled up for those who worship you, ready and waiting for all who run to you to escape an unkind world. You hide them safely away from the opposition…Blessed GOD! His love is the wonder of the world.” Psalm 31:19-22 MSG
There is an escape from this unkind world, only one. My Lord waits expectantly for me to disconnect my heart from the world’s things and open my empty hands to all he wants to give. The world takes away, he gives unceasingly and graciously. The world passes away; my Lord’s gifts live eternally. So, why do I get so connected to this temporary, grasping world?
Lord, the beautiful things in the world are fore tastes of what is to come. They point to me to you. Forgive me for the many ways I fall in love with be with the things and miss the giver.
