I lose heart when I forget to look for the goodness of the Lord.
I get so near-sighted and so focused on the here and now and on myself that I lose sight of GOD,
His call on my life.
But when I forget …
He will realign my thinking from a safe place.
A place where not too many others can reach me.
A place with tremendous perspective.
A place prepared for just that purpose.
He won't hide me and leave me, but He will hide with me.
If I let Him …
I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. (Psalm 27:13)
For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock. (Psalm 27:5)
