Titanium TinkleBerry: The Dog Whom I Love part 7
“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal,” (2 Corinthians 4:18). There is something to the statement above. In our world, we are groomed to become caretakers as adults. But our provision has always been provided by God. When we were young we saw our parents as God. But as adults, we need to shift our belief system and remember that our parents are not our super heroes or our God, which was just our limited perception at the time. God is our God and we should retrain ourselves to revere His word as the guidance we should follow because God loves us and will never leave us. “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you,” (Deuteronomy 31:6 NIV).
The human spirit needs comfort. Being an adult is hard. Life is hard and full of surprises. It is unpredictable and uncontrollable. We lose loved ones to diseases like Cancer and Aids. We lose jobs to technology and industry. We have accidents that don’t kill us but instead permanently mane us. We have to deal with having too much and not enough at the same time. We have to face unspeakable hardships like going to war and coming back again. And that is just in the USA. There is starvation, genocide and more abroad.
As humans, throughout time, comfort has always been found in our Gods. Why? Well, there are just things that we can’t explain about the world around us and about ourselves. Some of these things weigh heavily on our minds and eat at our souls. “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light,” (Matthew 11:28-30 KJV). It was hard for me to find rest in Jesus for most of my life. God has always been my God and I have always looked to Him for support but I used to feel as if I wasn’t good enough to receive His comfort.
