Bill and I have been through a bit of upheaval in our lives just lately. We are looking for a new church due to disagreements with our Pastor. We have taken in our oldest son and his family due to financial pressures in their lives. We, thank the Lord, have found a 3-bedroom house to rent starting in October. Let alone all of the little trials that come our way just by walking out the front door of our home.
But, I say all that to say that GOD IS SO GOOD!!!! Even with all the trials and woes we go through, Jesus is with us each step of the way! What an amazing thought!
One of my favorite books of the Bible is Psalms. My Bible reading covers a Proverbs a day and then Psalms. I read that day's date, then continue just adding the number 30 to the day's date. It is an amazing book. So many of the Psalms just hit close to home. David teaches us that we can question God and cry out to Him when we need to do so. So many verses come to mind. Psalm 23 was a huge comfort to me when my Mom passed away last year. I am so glad I had that committed to my heart. In fact, Psalm 119:11 says we should commit the Word of God in our hearts. Psalm 1 shows us that He will bless us if we keep from the worldly things in this life. I could go on and on.
What I am saying is that Jesus is our refuge and strength and a very present help in trouble!
All glory to God!
God bless to all!!
