My purpose for this blog was always that it be a place to share my heart and my faith. Happy Heart Wisdom is the vehicle that I hope will help me to do just that. In the past I've only shared a Bible verse and left you to find it's meaning for you. I will continue to share Bible verses this way throughout the week but in this new Happy Heart Wisdom feature I will endeavor to share my own impressions of my favorite verses; and hopefully to bless you with some new insight and truth. I hope you will join me on this journey.
This verse fills me with joy, gives me a sense of security and strengthens my faith. No wonder it's one of my favorite verses in the Bible. I will find my joy in God's presence and He will show me the path for my life.
Psalm 16 starts out with David asking God to keep him safe. In verse 8, David declares, "I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for He is right beside me". David knew that his safety and "every good thing in his life" (verse 2) was the result of his relationship with God and sprang from his daily communion with Him.
To remain in God's presence is His will for you and me. There we find safety and security, hope for the future and joy for each day. In God's presence we have joy today and forever. Read Psalm 16 and be filled with joy as you walk in His Presence.
