Looking up and around, makes a difference!
Higher than the mountains, are the stars. A bright light that is seen from far away. Even in the darkest skies, there is a brightness that comes awake. Shining stars and brighter than we can imagine. If we could only take a moment to see, God has created each new day for purpose.
THE ROCK ~ GOD
Psalm 27 New International Version
1 The Lord is my light and my salvation--
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life--
of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked advance against me
to devour me,
it is my enemies and my foes
who will stumble and fall.
3 Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then I will be confident.
4 One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.
5 For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.
6 Then my head will be exalted
above the enemies who surround me;
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make music to the Lord.
7 Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
be merciful to me and answer me.
8 My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
Your face, Lord, I will seek.
9 Do not hide your face from me,
do not turn your servant away in anger;
you have been my helper.
Do not reject me or forsake me,
God my Savior.
10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
the Lord will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, Lord;
lead me in a straight path
because of my oppressors.
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
for false witnesses rise up against me,
spouting malicious accusations.
13 I remain confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
THE ROCK ~ REMAIN CONFIDENT in God
His plan is perfect and is in action today for you, your families and friends. Things happen suddenly and takes our thought somewhere far away from here. Things just hit us out of nowhere and yet God remains the same. In all times of life, God is faithful to those who are faithful back to him. There are really bad people in a real world. So guard your heart, your life and stay strong in God.
My prayers continue for you this very day and I'm thankful that you read this. I feel strongly to say that we must encourage ourselves at times of life. People can not see inside our hearts and may think all is well. When actually, we could use a smile, a hug or even one message of hope. Today, this is your message of hope. God is greater than what you face and know that he is your ROCK! Solid in all times and we need not always to figure things out. Resting in God and allow him freedom to help us.
