Close encounters 2 // 03-04-19

“I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me. No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice. My body rests in safety…You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever.” Psalms‬ ‭16:8-11‬ NLT

Gladness, rejoicing, joy and pleasure are all related here to close fellowship with God, knowing His daily, life-giving presence and knowing my future destination! As I draw close to Him, as I look to Him for direction and put my trust in Him I will find rest and recovery and hope and peace. No wonder my heart is glad!! Thank You Jesus for making this way possible, help me to run to Your presence rather than to anywhere or anything else! May my joy be infectious to others needing joy today as I point them to You 🙏🏼
