Wednesday in the Word.


“Because of the oppression of the weak
and the groaning of the needy,
I will now arise, ” says the Lord.
“I will protect them from those who malign them.”
And the words of the Lord are flawless,
like silver refined in a furnace of clay,
purified seven times.
O Lord, you will keep us safe
and protect us from such people forever.

Psalm 12:5-7

Feeling raw and exposed lately. So many changes...good things happening...prayers being answered. And in the middle of it all I just keep trying to catch my breath.

Life is moving fast...I know I say it like every other day. But...it is. And I am just doing my best to keep up.

My boys head back to school tomorrow. And I head off to the first day at my new job. Everyone will be heading in their own direction. That is life, I suppose. But it still can make for some anxious feelings.

So...I remind myself to look to the Lord...to trust in Him...to believe that He will keep us safe and protect us...always. Thank you Lord.

I'm thinking of you in this season of change and am right along with you, trying to keep up. A friend pointed me to this article today- encouragement in a strange sort of way:-)...http://www.relevantmagazine.com/god/practical-faith/will-you-follow-jesus-even-if-your-life-doesnt-get-any-better
