Thoughts on a Thursday

To the very left,
the icon of the Crucifixion and the Resurrection of Christ.
*
This is our end and our beginning.
*
Even for us who are in North America and really are
pretty well off, considering the rest of the world,
even myself I would say
who yes I need a job
but for the moment I still live with nice things in my own apartment.
But we struggle too.
To be honest we all have deep battles we are waged in.
Our lives or blogs may appear nice, not nice, messy or perfect.
But all of us struggle
all of us desperately need the Lord's healing and help.
*
Somehow in the midst of this struggle,
and with the current head cold that I now officially have,
I have been thinking of how
I am with Christ
even if I don't do all things right in the day
or perhaps no things right at all,
even if I only manage to light a candle
I am still with Christ.
Or I / we must pray that we are really with Christ
that we do more than merely think about Him
but want to be with Him, Himself.
I am still learning this; Christ as God
Christ as Living and a Person
with us...
*
The truth of Christ's death and resurrection is still ours
regardless of what mess we find ourselves in.
*
I still as of current have no job news.
Maybe yet today,
maybe tomorrow.
*
But I have enough for today
give us our daily bread
lead us into temptation
deliver us from evil
*

21 Thus my heart was grieved,
And I was vexed in my mind.
22 I was so foolish and ignorant;
I was like a beast before You.
23 Nevertheless I am continually with You;
You hold me by my right hand.
24 You will guide me with Your counsel,
And afterward receive me to glory.

25 Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
26 My flesh and my heart fail;
But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Psalm 73:21-26 nkjv

J-A, nice that you also love this verse! If I did anything good in my posts, I think that is by God's mercy... :)
