Thankful Thursday – Protection

Today I am so very thankful for protection and providence in the midst of fear and trembling.

I’d like to share a portion of my favorite scripture passage, Psalm 18. It’s always hard for me to take an excerpt, because I love the whole thing. But the whole thing is rather long.

Enjoy this excerpt and then read the whole thing here. GOD IS GOOD!

Psalm 18: 1-6

I love you, O LORD, my strength.

The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised,
and I am saved from my enemies

The cords of death encompassed me;
the torrents of destruction assailed me;
the cords of Sheol entangled me;
the snares of death confronted me.

In my distress I called upon the LORD;
to my God I cried for help.
From his temple he heard my voice,
and my cry to him reached his ears.

Amen to that Amber. I love reading the Psalm. They are wonderful for comfort and encouragement. David had a way to praise the Lord in the midst of his storms. I am glad that we have the Scripture passages to even encourage us today…

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this past week.

Blessings to you and your precious family.
