Sometimes I wish I lived before the internet was ever invented, says the blogger.
I find it so easy to get sidetracked by the world around me. We live in this society of decadence and distraction. How could it not happen? Most of the things I waste time on could even be considered “good.” Looking up allergy friendly recipes- but how many of them do I actually make? Researching natural health solutions to the point of losing sleep- which ironically is not healthy. Reading article after article of other people’s interpretations of God’s Word- when I’m still working on reading the entire Bible myself!
So God put Psalm 119:37 in front of me the other day, and I had to share it. Because, really, everything is worthless compared to Him.
You, LORD, are my lamp; the LORD turns my darkness into light.
– 2 Samuel 22:29 NIV
Revelation 22 (English Standard Version)
The River of Life
22 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. 4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 5 And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.
