The Real Deal (and Sunday Song)

The world has dangled much before my heart’s eye.  I had designer tags on clothes and perfumes, plenty of bling; I was sought after, a “somebody”—albeit in small circles.  None of it satisfied the deep and mysterious longing.  Nothing we purchase and consume is meant to last; all that we collect and achieve will be ashes.

God, the Creator of all life, is Eternal.  He made the ultimate sacrifice on Calvary’s cross so that I can live with Him now and throughout Eternity.  That’s His everlasting promise which will never tarnish…He’s the real deal for me. 

His Word is the manna sustaining me, His love is beyond my understanding and measure.  He’s the anchor which tethers me, His strength carries me through each day.  His character includes every aspect of a loving Father, powerful Savior, intimate Friend, Defender, Protector, Provider, and trusted Lord.  He brings me joy, and daily mercies. 

He’s better than anything this temporal world offers me.  I’ve tasted and seen that the Lord is GOOD. 

May He bless you Abundantly.  Here’s a Sunday song♥Rhen

“For the angel of the LORD is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him.  Taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!  Fear the LORD, you his godly people, for those who fear him will have all they need.  Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the LORD will lack no good thing.” Psalm 34:7-10, New Living Translation

  1. Amen Rhen. Great message my friend and beautifully put forth. In church we talked about how earthly things are not things we can count on like the stock market. God’s love 💕 is always with us and He will never forsake us. Once we belong to Him we always do even when we screw up. I am so grateful for that. Love to you Rhen and again great message. Love your sister in Christ. Joni

    1. Thank you, dear sister–I appreciate you reading and commenting. I sometimes wonder if it’s more of a burden for the wealthy, than for those with less–as it would be so easy to depend on stock market, investments, bank accounts. He is the Rock which won’t crumble, regardless of financial downturns and other storms ❤

      1. Amen so true. Wealth does not bring happiness. There is nothing wrong with money as long as one doesn’t start make it an idol. You have a blessed day and week my friend. Love you.

  3. Amen Rhen. May we all see the blessings we have more than the seeking for the things we dont actually need in life. Lent is coming and this is the season to contemplate and renew out faith.
