I waited for the LORD. (Let’s be honest, I am still waiting and not always as patiently as I should.)
Yet still He turns and hears my cry.
He brings me up out of the pit of destruction,
out of the miry clay,
and sets my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
I cannot see the way but this I KNOW:
The LORD is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the defense of my life; Whom shall I dread?
When evildoers came upon me to devour my flesh,
My adversaries and my enemies, they stumbled and fell.
Though a host encamp against me, My heart will not fear;
Though war arise against me,
In spite of this I shall be confident.
Psalm 27: 1-3
Therefore, no matter what circumstances seem to suggest, I will hold onto the Truth:
“Blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord.”
(Yes, Tootsie — I AM stealing your favorite verse!! LOL!)
Blessed be the LORD, because He has heard the voice of my supplication.
The LORD is my strength and my shield;
My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped;
Therefore my heart exults and with my song I shall thank Him!
Be strong and courageous for the LORD your GOD will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9
I am not ashamed for I know in Whom I have believed and am convinced that He is able to keep that which I have entrusted to Him until that day. 2 Timothy 1:12
