July 9 Life Journal Reading Plan: Mic.1-4; Heb.6
Unbreakable Spiritual Lifeline
S~ We who have run for our very lives to God have every reason to grab the promised hope with both hands and never let go. It’s an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God where Jesus, running on ahead of us, has taken up his permanent post as high priest for us, in the order of Melchizadek. Hebrews 6:18-20
O~ The readings for today could cause a person to wonder if this God of ours is schizophrenic, if they were read without context. How often in my life is it impossible to discern what God is doing – or allowing to be done? I get fearful and panicked when I forget that He is completely trustworthy and unchanging. He is above the fray of this everyday life, beyond the fickleness of people whose opinions and actions change like the wind. I can trust Him even when everything around me seems to be changing.
Unbreakable spiritual lifeline
You stretch strong and tight
A three-strand rope to the light

I become a grain of sand
Drawn in, then pulled back out to sea
Lost in the undertow of roiling waves
So I refuse!
I hold fast to my anchor of truth.
Your Word sets me free.
YOU set me free.
You are my
