The LORD is merciful and gracious,
Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.
He will not always strive with us,
Nor will He keep His anger forever.
He has not dealt with us according to our sins,
Nor punished us according to our iniquities.
For as the heavens are high above the earth,
So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
As a father pities his children,
So the LORD pities those who fear Him.
For He knows our frame;
He remembers that we are dust.
Nothing can compare to that feeling when you open your Bible and your mind just… stills. No matter what’s going on in my life, no matter how stressed or lonely or upset I feel, the second I breathe and listen to what God has to say I know it’s going to be okay. I know it is okay.
Be still, He says to me, to you, to us. All is well.
