FRIDAY, May 21                  [Lydia of Thyatira]

Hebrews 8:10 This is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws in their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

These words from God make me feel as though I am wrapped in a heavy blanket with just my face and toes sticking out, the perfect balance of protected and warm. To me this verse reads like a song. This is the comfort of implications: if you listen closely, you can hear all of the promises God makes. Bursting through the lines of this passage is the glorious promise of love and the infinite ways it is manifested in God.

This verse sits in the center of my chest and ripples out, filling my whole being with the comfort of being held in the loving arms of God.
