Blessed are you who give yourselves over to God , turn your backs on the world’s “sure thing,” ignore what the world worships;
The world’s a huge stockpile of God -wonders and God-thoughts.
Nothing and no one comes close to you!
I start talking about you, telling what I know, and quickly run out of words.
Neither numbers nor words account for you.
Doing something for you, bringing something to you— that’s not what you’re after.
Being religious, acting pious— that’s not what you’re asking for. You’ve opened my ears so I can listen.
So I answered, “I’m coming. I read in your letter what you wrote about me, And I’m coming to the party you’re throwing for me.”
That’s when God’s Word entered my life, became part of my very being.
Psalm 40:4-8 MSG
Turning toward God, following Him, turning my back on the world.
In Christ, Beetle
