I cannot imagine living life without walking hand-in-hand with Jesus. He guides us and helps us. He brings comfort, He strengthens, He upholds.
He brings us right into the throne room of the Father and it is there that we find love to share with those we come in contact with, joy in the midst of sorrow, peace in the midst of the calamity that surrounds us, endurance to continue on in faith, kindness and goodness to share with others, faith to serve God as He calls us, gentleness in response to the harshness we see in the world, self control as opposed to self gratification.
Sadly, there are people in this world who want nothing to do with God. They live their lives oblivious to what God has in His Heart for people. They wander aimlessly trying to fulfill the ever-increasing lusts of their flesh and never find satisfaction because they turn from the One Who is able to completely satisfy and fulfill.
8 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
9 For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
