Words that heal...

*Nevertheless, I am continually with you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides You. My flesh and my heart may fail but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. For behold, those who are far from you shall perish; you put an end to everyone who is unfaithful to you. But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, that I may tell of all your works.* Psalm 73:23-28

*Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD; I will take joy in the God of my salvation. God, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer's; he makes me tread on my high places.* Habakkuk 3:17-19

*And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, "This is the way, walk in it," when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.* Isaiah 30:21

So true, Jo. These are words of healing. I praise God for your faithfulness to Him throughout this year. That is why you still find reason to live, why you still find reason to speak truth. And I know that God heals through his word. Thanks for your vulnerability, friend. You are a treasure Jo. A beautiful TREASURE. I miss you today, especially, and want to be with you. Love ya, friend.
