the Word

Growing up in church, I would always hear people say that the scriptures are alive, that they have answers to your problems, and other big promises like these. Sometimes I would go through phases in my life where that just did not make sense. I would want the Bible to have clearly written in it where I should go to college, who I should marry, when we should buy our next car, etc. Obviously I had an ignorant view of what these older and much wiser people were saying, but now I do get just that. I open the Word of God, the very written word of the Lamb, and it’s like the words jump off the page, and I just can’t get enough of it. I crave it when my morning gets a little too busy or when I am too sleepy at night to read. Sometimes when I need a boost during the day, I find myself opening my “ap” on my phone just to read a quick verse. We need His Holy Word. We all need it bad.

Though you have made me see troubles,
many and bitter,
you will restore my life again;
from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up.
You will increase my honor and comfort me once again.
Psalms 71:20-21

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Psalms 34:18

I lie down and sleep;
I wake again because the Lord sustains me.
Psalms 3:5
