What I read today

Genesis 31-32; Psalm 16; Isaiah 16; Matthew 16; Romans 16

Psalm 16 verse 11 says “You show me the path of life.  In your presence there is fullness and joy; in your right hand are pleasures forevermore”

I remember when I was in my early 20’s how many times I wondered if God truly could forgive me.  I knew how unworthy I was.  I understood that I hadn’t been faithful to him.  I knew that I wasn’t always a good husband or father.

Could God really care for me?

It wasn’t until I started reading the scriptures that I realized that not only could God care for me but that he actually did care for me.

I read about a God who made a plan 8,000 years ago to save me.  I learned about a God who knew me by name.  Who cared about me personally.  A God who stood at the door of my heart and knocked, waiting for me to answer him.  A God who drew me into his presence, because I couldn’t on my own run to him.

What’s the path of life you ask?  It’s to continue seeking to know Jesus.

How do we get fullness and joy you ask?  We focus on the savior who is with us right here and now.  Not off in some distant universe.  Not some invisible man in the sky.  No, a savior who is here right now, with us today.
