“Companioned…connected…loved…forgiven”

“Green pastures are before me, which yet I have not seen. Bright skies will soon be over me, where darkest clouds have been. My hope I cannot measure, my path to life is free. My Savior has my treasure, and He will walk with me.” Anna Laetitia Waring (1850)

…God didn’t just drop us into a bunch of moral and human struggles and then step back to watch how we handle them. We’re not abandoned here, self-existent and alone, navigating our way through this world’s obstacle course. As Jesus told his disciples in John, we aren’t expected to bear fruit here by ourselves, an isolated branch separated from its vine, from its source (15:4). The “treasure” Christ has for us is that we are always companioned, always walking with him, ever connected and loved and forgiven. What finally reversed my years of hardship and struggle was a new and growing relationship with “my Saviour.” (Living Calm, ©️2016, chapter 11)
