Wednesday Wisdom

Oh, my heart needed to hear this today... 

in the midst of so many difficult things lately - another Reeces Rainbow baby has died before his family could get to him;  a beloved son died at 21 and his good friend was there to watch the police wheel his body out - his mom burying her third and last child - oh my heart - how will she survive this?  She was barely hanging on after burying her second child.  So very thankful for God not withholding Himself from us...

“…no good thing does He withhold…” Ps. 84:11

And the good things in life are not health but holiness,
not the riches of this world but relationship with God,
not our plans but His presence —

and He withholds no good thing from us
because life’s good things aren’t ever things.
