Moving Forward

Keep me safe, O God,
for in you I take refuge.

I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord;
apart from you I have no good thing."

As for the saints who are in the land,
they are the glorious ones in whom is all my delight.

The sorrows of those will increase
who run after other gods.
I will not pour out their libations of blood
or take up their names on my lips.

LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup;
you have made my lot secure.

The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance.

I will praise the LORD, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.

I have set the LORD always before me.
Because he is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken.

Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,

because you will not abandon me to the grave,
nor will you let your Holy One see decay.

You have made known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand."

Psalm 16

God has been speaking LOADS into my life...The chapter above has meant SO much during this time I am going through. I am struggling through moving forward the way God wants, but I was assured today that it is okay to "weep forward"...meaning, it isn't always easy to move forward...it is even painful sometimes, but when we are following God, it will be more than worth it in the end! So...I will weep forward and find refuge in Him and one day receive my delightful inheritance. I will keep Him ahead of me and He will fill me with joy in His presence!

Keep moving forward friends...He is there before you preparing the way!
