My friend Becky, told me to read this Psalm 91 daily. I wanted to share it with you. Life has a way of changing us. As we hold onto hope of a new day, I can see some prayers are answered and why some prayers didn't get answered. Dwelling in the shelter of God and resting in his plan is important.
Psalm 91 New International Version
1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
Keep our thoughts healthy is important. Somethings in life will never make sense to our human brain. I witness many things in my life. Somethings that brings joy to my soul and other things that bring back tears to my eyes. Life has a way of changing us from the inside out. I hold onto God and learn to rest in his plan, yet I'm human. A person with feelings, emotions and works hard at doing the right thing. I am finding as I get older, the importance of taking care of you. We can take care of everyone else and often forget ourselves. This is why I want you to read Psalm 91 over again. God is there for you daily and will never leave you. It is sometimes best to stop asking why and trust him through it all.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
