“You will show me the way of life,
granting me the joy of your presence
and the pleasures of living with you forever.”
I look at this passage in psalm as a promise. By choosing to walk the narrow road, the path that offers life and freedom, God ensures me that I will not be alone. I know that so many times in my walk I feel abandoned and unloved. I neglect my relationship with him and think that I can do it all on my own. I sometimes forget about the promise of joy and love that He gives to me. I don’t have to be in constant worry everyday about the things that I cant control or change. He doesn’t want me to be held down by worry and frustration but instead wants me to be joyful in the promise of eternal life with him!
