“For I know that my Redeemer lives, and He shall stand at last on the earth; And after my skin is destroyed, this I know, that in my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not another. How my heart yearns within me!”  Job 19:25-27

I really like salt. My kids get frustrated with me because I rarely taste my food before I add salt to it. I mean, come on, it always needs salt!! When I read this passage I thought it should be the salt that is added to every situation. How necessary it is for us to really believe this. If all we had to hope for was what this world has to offer it would be, for me, like trying to eat without salt.

And, as I thought more about it I thought “This is what I should be remembering to cry out during the day when things get rough”…”I know that my Redeemer lives and He shall stand at last on earth!”…like a battle cry!  I need to know that Jesus is by my side. And in knowing this I feel His strength, His joy, and His support. So I’m going to try to remember to recite these words at the beginning of the day! Hopefully my days will begin with a little more positive flavor!
