Sunday Reflection: Faith Grounded

If you read my blog on a regular basis, you might know that I’m faith grounded. I believe in God and his son Jesus Christ who died for my sin (past, present and future). Even if I’d never acknowledged Jesus or believed in him, he still died for “the world”.  I believe that when I die, I will spend eternity with God. I believe that the Holy Spirit of God lives in me, helping me to connect with God and God to me. I believe that God’s word (the Holy Bible) is powerful as I declare its truth over life’s situations, use it for guidance and fill up with its power to push me forward.

Just like every person in this world, I’ve known sorrow, hard times and devastating circumstances, but I face none of these alone.  God is my sanctuary.
 
"You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.

I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night. Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. I cling to you; your right hand upholds me.

Those who want to kill me will be destroyed; they will go down to the depths of the earth. They will be given over to the sword and become food for jackals.

But the king will rejoice in God; all who swear by God will glory in him, while the mouths of liars will be silenced." Psalm 63 (NIV)

Blessings,
Teresa
