A Promise

Then I realized that my heart was bitter,
and I was all torn up inside.
I was so foolish and ignorant—
I must have seemed like a senseless animal to you.
Yet I still belong to you;
you hold my right hand.
You guide me with your counsel,
leading me to a glorious destiny.
Whom have I in heaven but you?
I desire you more than anything on earth.
My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak,
but God remains the strength of my heart;
he is mine forever.Psalm 73: 21-26 NLT

I really love this passage. I think my favorite verse is “Yet, I still belong to you.” Those six little words fill me with so much comfort, so much hope,and so much peace.

Yet, I still belong to you.

No matter how many times I fail or how many times I’ve pushed God out of the driver’s seat and taken the wheel…yet even then…I still belong to Him. No wrong turn that I’ve made in my past, no mistake that I make today, and no bad choice that I will inevitably make tomorrow changes this promise. Yet I still belong to You.

Thank you, Lord!
