I had just returned from a family reunion in Fargo, North Dakota, and was in such a deep depression that I could only cry out to the Lord, and He led me to Psalm 73.
23 Yet I am always with you;
you hold me by my right hand.
24 You guide me with your counsel,
and afterward you will take me into glory.
25 Whom have I in heaven but you?
And earth has nothing I desire besides you.
I penned these words in my journal:
“Lord God, You are the main character in the play; all the rest of us are the supporting cast. You are the bright shining star. All else in the world – people, places, things, circumstances, events – is the shadowland. Be Thou my one true love, my Lord, my keeper.” And I was comforted.
