“For with Thee is the fountain of life: in Thy light shall we see light.” (Psalm 36:9, KJV)
THE PAST MONTH has brought to Louisiana what old-timers call “frog-stranglin” weather. It seems we’re experiencing one long, torrential rainstorm after another. On days like these, as I make my morning drive to work under dark, foreboding skies , I succumb a little too quickly to feeling gloomy― and I have trouble really “living.” Instead, I find myself merely “existing” from one day to the next until the warm sunny days return.
What helps lighten my heart is remembering that the Lord is my “fountain of Life.” After all, He has breathed more than just everlasting existence into my soul. Real living, like prayer and worship, requires active participation on my part― not a passive surrender to whatever the day holds.
