The verses in the psalms are an opportunity to turn to the truth to resonate with it. As we do resonate with the truth that springs from the essence of love we will feel comforted and encouraged especially in challenging times. However why wait for challenging times. It is good to turn to the truth when feeling great in acknowledging a reality that is causing all things to be. There is a verse in the psalms that states, “before I was afflicted I went astray.” In times of feeling great it good to keep in line with the truth setting up a future that continues to bring increasing peace and a greater experience of life. Let’s keep in mind whether we find ourselves in challenging times or so called easier times let’s always give thanks for the truth that is and that is always gifting us with the love that is springing from it.
I live by the adage that when you feel stressed turn to the things of God. When you do you are never disappointed. Sometimes there are times when you do not feel like doing this. This is a clear signal that your orientation is off and that it is time to give thanks to recognize that you are off the mark. As you do this you will find something melting in your heart that brings to remembrance your love for the things of God. At this point you will find that as you read a verse from the Psalms or the bible your heart will further relax and give even deeper thanks for the spirit carried through the words that bring comfort and tranquility. I also appreciate the words that the kingdom of heaven is always at hand as you allow yourself to be in position to receive it.
