When I was searching through Matt's archives, I came accross many posts that spoke to me. I went poking around because the boy doesn't post much new stuff, and I recalled that he often had some very though provoking blogs that he has written over the years. I hope that he doesn't mind me resurrecting some of his old posts. I am thinking that he wrote this himself, he can correct me if I am wrong. When I read this, I was again convicted of how much time I spend trying to find relief and peace in the words and comfort of other people. Daily I am learning that true peace can only come from one source. Faithful friends are great, but must should always come second to spending quality time directly at the throne of grace. God puts people in our lives to help us out, and give us support, but He ultimately wants us to cling to Him. Thanks Matt, for letting me steal your old posts. This poem really touched me.
My Heart Returns To You, O Lord!
My heart returns to you, O Lord, When those fail who are around me.
