“…for God, you have tested us; you have tried us as silver is tried…we went through fire and through water, yet You have brought us out to a place of abundance” Psalm 66:10,12
God’s definition of abundance is not necessarily that of this world. His gift is not an easy life.
It is strength when we think we have none.
Peace when the world is spinning.
A sacred place to lay our burdens (both founded and unfounded).
A deep, undeserved, and unfailing love.
The knowledge that our salvation has already been paid despite our failings.
So, yes, please…
“Come and hear all you who fear God and I will tell what He has done [and is doing] for my soul.” Psalm 66:16
because I certainly couldn’t make it in this crazy place on my own.
