In The Mist Of Light Affections
This morning as I’m moving around my home, a moving meditation with my mind being fixed on God, the thought came to me that no matter what is happening in my life, or in my body, God is good and God is faithful. Psalms 34:1 comes to mind which says “I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” I’m at the place at my life more than ever that God deserves praise no matter what we are experiencing in life, whether physically, spiritually or emotionally. Those things should never take away our gratitude and thanksgiving of Him.
I know personally of many that are experiencing physically sickness such as cancer, while others are experiencing emotionally sickness such as depression, extremed stress and anxiety, and others experiencing spiritual challenges, where their faith in God is on shaking ground. As I continue to ponder (meditate) on the goodness and faithfulness of God, I am reminded of the Apostle Paul sharing of everything he had experienced since following Jesus were light affections. 2 Corinthians 4:17 “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;”
Wherever you are in life, I pray that you will look and see beyond your physical eyes and see that God is good. God is faithful. God is worthy of your praise and thanksgiving.
With love and peace,
