Walking in God's light and rejoicing in Him; acclaiming Him brings blessings, glory, and strength.
Perhaps it is the long, long, LONG winters we have here in the far north that get to me at this time of the year. Perhaps it is the missing of family and friends far away. Perhaps it is the waiting. Sometimes I get trapped in negative thoughts instead of walking in the light. You would think that by now we would 'get it'. It is so much better to walk in God's promises for us than it is to dwell on the 'what ifs' and the 'it will never happens'.
This passage from Psalm 89 reminded me to be on guard. The pit of self-pity is always near . Occupying our minds with praise and thanksgiving gives us strength and leaves no room for self-pity.
Walk in His light...
