“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of Lord forever.” (Psalm 23:6, ESV)
Just some thoughts to ponder…
“The valley of the shadow of death” always precedes the goodness and mercy of the Lord. You would not know one without the other. The depth of God’s love is felt, and is most tangible, as it heals us in our greatest need.
In other words, we would not know love without fighting for it. Love is made real because it counters the darkest of voids where love does not exist. Good and evil will always exist side by side in this life, but God’s love will always be seen because darkness cannot remain in the light.
May today grow bright because of His creative love growing within you.
