Standing on Solid Ground

05162014.mmitm.mjb

If the fruit of your relationship with Jesus means that you are—
Loving more deeply,
Living more holy,
Obeying more quickly,
Trusting more fully,
Giving more freely,
Choosing more wisely,
Walking more closely—
If peace abides and joys abound,
If love remains and hope is found—
Then be assured, your faith is sound,
And your life stands on solid ground.

BUT [as for] you, teach what is fitting and becoming to sound (wholesome) doctrine [the character and right living that identify true Christians]. Titus 2:1 AMP

    And your life stands on solid ground.

    These four lines are everything. We questions whether or not we are walking in the way that is truly pleasing to Him always questioning ourselves and fretting that if we are feeling this that maybe it is too good to last or be true. But peace and joy ARE the things that do last in the midst of anything. Our lives are His and the ground of faith is not of this world but of His love. Thank you for this reflection!
