March 10, Today’s Thought – A Sure Foundation

mar 6 001Red Tulips!

Good Morning

Psalm 125:1-2 They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever. As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.

During the Great Depression many people
lost hope in the government, their churches, their families,
and even God as the downward spiral of economic disaster
engulfed everything they owned.
People who had previously been considered upper middle class
found them selves standing in soup lines.
Those who had ordered their lives around money
faced dismal futures, and suicides became common.

Sound familiar?
Is it possible that living in a prosperous society
tempts us to put our hope in the wrong things?

The truth is that no earthly thing deserves our trust;
recent economic woes and front page scandals demonstrate
once again that even the most stable
institution, person, or system can fail.
But when we place our hope in God,
we find His protection and renewal
even in the deepest valleys of our lives on earth.
He alone is a worthy foundation
on which to build our lives.
~~A Daybook of Grace

With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
