Psalm 16:7-9, 11 – I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. I keep the LORD always before me; because he is my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; my body also rests secure. You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of joy; in your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
I wanted to end the week with this passage because it highlights for us one more time how our faith and our health are intimately connected. While we are getting our rest, we are being instructed. When our souls rejoice, our bodies rest secure.
Almighty God, illuminate your path toward life so that we can experience true joy. Amen.
