A Devotional Thought

In the previous post, I mentioned a book I just started reading. I found an interesting Bible verse mentioned, Hebrews 10:31 - "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God" quoted from pg 18 in Arthur's Just book. That verse had never stuck out in my mind before but I see that as fearful but also comforting at the same time. Yes, we should be fearful of the true God, the one who holds the power to lift up or destroy, who allows us to keep breathing day after day but I also find comfort there. Comfort in knowing that the same God can calm the "storms" that are thrown at us, who can hold us in the palm of his hand and carry us on his shoulders- the gentle Shepherd of our souls.
