In my morning readings:
John 6: 68,69 (NLT)
68Simon Peter replied, “Lord, to whom would we go? You alone have the words that give eternal life. 69We believe them, and we know you are the Holy One of God.”
These are some of the words I return to over and over. In the middle of trouble when I am faced with things I do not understand, even when God seems silent, I return to these words of Peter’s which have become my words too. I return to the experiences of my past, I remember how God has been with me. I go spend some time in the outdoors and get my perspectives straightened around. I spend some time drinking from the Psalms. I believe. I hang onto this God that I know is independent of my emotional state. This is the God who is – the I AM. There is no where else to turn.
