The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see. The act of faith is what distinguished our ancestors, set them above the crowd.
It is only our faith in God which allows us to stand, even when surrounded by darkness.
Knowing He is our firm foundation helps us hold on, for it is our act of faith that distinguishes us here on this planet. From those who wander without an anchor tethering them through their lives.
And in the reaching out in faith towards Him, despite our doubts or what we can see about us, we find God has been reaching for us. Holding us close, anchoring us to Him, our firm foundation.
God with us, He makes life worth living. Despite the ups & downs you may be experiencing. Despite the brokenness and hopeless feelings you might feel. Despite being alone, lost or seeking shelter.
He alone can your life be built upon, this eternal foundation. God before all time & space as we know it.
Because let’s face it. Anything else is only temporary.
Feeling overwhelmed in the storm? Doubled over with pain, loss? Alone to your core? Listless and without purpose?
Reach for Him if you are searching for a life that matters.
