PSALM 112:4 “EVEN IN THE DARKNESS, LIGHT DAWNS FOR THE RIGHTEOUS.”
Any person trying to align himself or herself with God discovers this eternal principle of life. Through my experiences, I’ve learned God promises in the worst of circumstances, IN THE LOWEST POINT in one’s life, there is already the inkling of a thought that things will get better. That is, as long as a person does not dwell on feeling so sorry for herself she is not blinded to what else is going on around her. I’ve found there will always be HINTS and signs that GOOD TIMES will come again. And as a comfort, the Bible observes that no one is righteous on her own. But if she is trying, GOD COUNTS THAT ATTEMPT AS RIGHTEOUSNESS.
READ THESE NEXT LINES ONLY IF YOU HAVEN’T BEFORE
I’ve found there is power pent up in the phrases from the Bible. They have been read, repeated aloud and pondered for several thousand years. In hours of need when I want direction, comfort or wisdom and God’s spirit I find these phrases help me feel connected to the millions of people before me who have been inspired by these same words. I feel when I repeat these words I am unlocking the spirit that inspired those original first words. I feel at peace and grateful for any help that comes from above. I send a new phrase and a few sentence commentary once a week. Look for them in the future.
