Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Acts 3:11-26 & Psalm 8
With the touch of a key, I refresh the words and programs on my computer screen. Similarly each time I turn my face to the Lord and take in holy things –a glance of loving recognition, the beauty of a sunset stretched across the sky, or the riches of a spoken passage of scripture –I refresh my spirit and re-establish the thoughts and ‘programs’ I need to continue on in life. Where will the ‘times of refreshing that come from the presence of the Lord’ be in my journey today? Will I find them? Holy Spirit of God, help me find times of refreshing in your presence.
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad.(Psalm 118:24)
“There is not in the world a kind of life more sweet and delightful, than that of a continual conversation with God; those only can comprehend it who practice and experience it. “.
