“My share in life has been pleasant;
my part has been beautiful.
I praise the LORD because he advises me.
Even at night, I feel his leading.
I keep the LORD before me always.
Because he is close by my side,
I will not be hurt.
So I rejoice and am glad.
Even my body has hope, because you will not leave me in the grave.
You will not let your holy one rot.
You will teach me how to live a holy life.
Being with you will fill me with joy;
at your right hand I will find pleasure forever.” – Psalm 16:6-11
The difference between Christianity and any ‘religion’ people try to follow in it’s place, is this hope in the midst of our circumstances.
When we feel our dreams and desires have died, even the grave will not be able to contain them!
You may come through grave circumstances but, in the end you will be filled with joy and know pleasure forever.
