Psalm Saturday

It's time for Psalm Saturday again and that means joining my friend Collette over at Jesus Loves Mums to share a Psalm or portion of that has spoken to us this week.

I'm in Psalm 27 this week.

If you've been keeping up with my posts this week, you know that I've been fighting a great battle and, while the wounds were not fatal, they almost were. I've been angry and hurt at so many people but the worst of all was the anger and hurt I shot towards my Father.....

"The Lord is my Light and my Salvation-so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my Fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? When evil people come to devour me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will not be afraid. Even if I am attacked, I will remain confident." (verses 1-3, NLT)

How I wish that when I was attacked, I would have picked up the Word and fought back!! Lesson learned...I hope..

"Teach me how to live, O Lord."
(verse 11a, NLT)

My prayer...teach me how to live Father so I don't find myself in the place I was earlier this week, ever again.

"Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord."
(verse 14, NLT)

This is what I must do, be patient, waiting on God because He is my Fortress, my Protector.

I must remember.....

Great verses Deb to think about. Especially in the situations you have faced recently! How has that all been?
Love Collette xxxx

Hi Deb, I apologize for being such a bad bloggy friend lately. I can't remember the last time I visited you. I'm not aware of what happened this week, but I can relate to running to God's Word AFTER reacting. Yep, sure can. I pray we all learn that lesson -- to allow Him to be our Shield, Defender, Shelter, and Fortress. ((((((hugs)))))))

Amen, sister! I love Psalms.. I even have a couple of pocket-sized books that have a selection of them. It's one of those things that you really should never be without... MUCH better than American Express! or Mastercard..or VISA.. or .. oh, you get what I'm sayin'. When we "charge" our cares on Him, He'll foot the bill...
