I lost my job last year. It was horrible, my world was turned upside down. But I got a new one. And I strongly feel I belong here. With these people and these tasks. There is a meaning. I am supposed to be right here, right now. I don't know why or for how long, but here and now this is right. And that word of today fit so perfectly:-)

The VOTD is up for today, a short one, Matthew 16.15—a question, actually:

I would say here is a state of mind. Or state of heart maybe.

That would be partly true. In the context of Paul's letter to the Colossians, he's probably referring to the renewal in knowledge that being in Christ brings to his followers. Here's the whole chapter:

It's a beautiful letter that talks about how God put everything in Christ.

"Every word of God is purified;
he is like a shield for those who take refuge in him.
Do not add to his words,
lest he reprove you, and prove you to be a liar" (NET).

Beautiful, encouraging verse, Isaiah 41.10 NLT:

"Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand."
