I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on The Lord! Psalms 27:13-14
In this life it is easy to lose heart. It is so tempting and sometimes ensnaring to focus on earthly deeds, daily routines and present concerns. But The Lord has indeed promised us a true land of the living, residing with Him eternally when we leave these earthen vessels, these dusty tent. May our eyes be tilted to the heavenlies each morning and nigh and may our minds be sharply fixated on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. He will give us the strength we need daily to run our race.
