GOD PAUSE: You know, even though you and I know that God is everywhere --- even all around us --- there are times when we simply need him to show up. To know that He is real. In Psalm 109, David describes himself as being on a dark slope, shaken to the core, and helpless. But he cries out in verse 21 and says “But not, O LORD, make yourself real to me like you promised you would. Because of your constant love and your heart-melting kindness, come be my hero and deliver me!” Dear Papa, my friend and I are so thankful that you are with us. Always. Especially when we are going through those rough places in life. May you be more real than ever, coming to our rescue. Being our hero. Amen and amen.
