There are some days (or weeks) when I find that I need to encourage myself in the Lord. I can easily become discouraged by what’s happening in the world around me, but that’s not how I want to live.
When I was a little girl, my mom had me memorize Psalm 37:25 which says, “I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.” Though parts of life may seem more difficult, my fears increase, and instability surround me, God will not forsake me. He will meet every need that I and my family have.
Not only that, but God has provided me an eternal home. All hurting, pain, separation, and loneliness will be gone, and in their place will be peace, love, goodness, and my blessed Savior.
