Well, my week is flying by - how about yours? Thank you for your prayers for our busy schedule. Things have gone well so far; the big stuff on my plate are yet to come. I have every confidence that all will go smoothly because of all the prayers. So, thanks again.
My verse today is from Psalm 119, verse 114: You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word. I really like this one. It sums up how I feel. Refuge is defined as a place providing protection or shelter, as from danger or hardship; haven; something to which one may turn for help, relief or escape. The definition of shield is a means of defense as in protective armor. I love the picture of resting in the covering of his mighty right hand while he is shielding me with his left. I know I am safe and secure there.
Hope means to desire something with confident expectation of its fulfillment. Putting my hope in His Word is the only true thing. Not in market analysis, forecasts, horoscopes, lucky charms, the Mayan calendar, or even people, including ourselves. The very Word of God is the only sure thing. I'm so glad He left it for us.
Where do you turn when the road gets bumpy? When the news has story after story of bad news and humanity seems bankrupt? Do you believe that He is who He says He is and that He can do what He says He can do? He is the one true God; great, glorious, mighty and He loves you as a bridegroom loves his bride. Put your hope in Him alone.
Thanks friends, for going on this journey with me. Keep up the good work on your verses.
