Can I just take a minute to say that this old world is a pretty heavy, hard, crazy place to be in right now. The brutal persecution of Christians has filled my Facebook news feed this week. It’s gut wrenching. I have so many friends going through desperately hard times right now, navigating circumstances I can’t even imagine having to deal with. I have so many momma friends with sick little ones, living on coffee and and prayer and an hour of sleep here and there. My heart is just breaking for them all.
When life presses in, I’ve found myself coming back to Psalm 27 (ESV) over and over. Verse 13 has always ALWAYS jumped out of that passage for me. The psalmist makes such a powerful statement, claiming that promise. “I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.”
Over and over in the Bible we read that God is good, but I would be lying if I didn’t say that sometimes it feels hard to believe, doesn’t it?
