filters

i would like to take this opportunity to give thanks to the Lord, for He is good.

His mercy endures forever.

unless we simply ignore the world around us, it can sometimes be easy to get a little down - or a maybe a lot down.

but if we look to the Lord and remember His goodness, we can be sure that His goodness is bigger than the world's badness.

or if you prefer, "greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world."

because most of us are so earth-bound, so to speak, it's easy to read God's Word through a subconscious filter composed of our circumstances and what we know in our minds to be true of the concrete, human world around us. but we must remember that God's Word is the only true Truth. therefore, we must instead take note of our circumstances and what we know in our minds to be true of the concrete, human world around us through a conscious filter composed of the truth of the Word of God. He sees what we cannot see. and He loves us. and He said He would never leave us.

praise His name!
