Right now I have a desktop picture of a rushing, turbulent river. I have captioned these words on it:
" Though the waters roar, I will be comforted.
I will rest in the shadow of His strength and the peace of His never-failing love.
The LORD is the Rock of my salvation. "
The words just came to me when I saw the picture. It is something I have found to be so true. God is my anchor. He is my tie post. I need Him so much. When I see all the world around in such confusion, when I talk to my study partners, I realize how different I am. I thank God I am different. I don't want what I see and hear out there. It's a mess. Everyone seems to think they are somebody or that they have to do it themselves because no one else will.
For me, the only times I experience real peace, real happiness, real love is when I talk to Jesus and He talks back to me. It is the times when I can get myself out of the way that I really receive from God. You see, God doesn't really actually need us. He didn't have to make an earth and put humans on it. He did though. He created us and loved us. So much so that He died for us. Loved us so much that He placed a need to be loved inside of us. He let go of Himself for us. We need to let go of us for Him. That's how it works. That's how you become anchored. Letting go of you and receiving Jesus Christ, the Word instead.
