"If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love." John 15:10
Feeling barren inside while I was writing yet another article, I had to find relief. Leaving my office, I walked over to a sitting room which has big stuffed chairs. Needing any chair that wasn't my office chair, I sat and allowed the plump cushions to comfort me. I bowed my head and went to the Lord as I was weak and burdened. All I wanted was what He had to say.
After a period of resting in His arms, it came to me that a red-letter edition of the Bible was what I needed. I wanted my child-like trusting relationship with Jesus back. Remembering Jesus' opinion of children given in Matthew 18:3-4, I felt I was on the right track. I needed to relax in His arms.
I found what I had found as a frightened 18 year old boy. Going away to a Christian College far away from home, I held onto Matthew 6:33 that told me that if I would seek first His kingdom, all I needed and more would be given to me. This has been a life verse, and I testify now as an old man to its truth.
Red-letter editions of the Bible find the words of Jesus and bring the light of a new day. Read with me and hear what Jesus has to say.
Dear Lord. all we really need is You, for what do we have without You? Warm our hearts to seek Your words that we might find Your peace that passes understanding. Thank You. Amen and Amen.
