Upheld Even If You Fall

“Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholds him with his hand.”

“But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in the time of trouble.”      ~Excerpts from Psalm 37

Watching the news is always an alarming thing these days.  Suffering, scary weather, scarier people, hurting people.  One passage of the Bible has been really ringing true for me lately…..Psalm 37.  I encourage you to read the whole thing when you have some time.  Praying for you, for me, for all of us to cling on to Jesus with all we have, because He is what will last in the end.  And the most excellent thing?  As much as we try to cling, He’s got us with his mighty hand and we can’t fall too far.  🙂  Blessings, Lisa

The Perfect Fortress

This morning I awoke to the news of the meteor crashing near the Ural Mountains in Russia…around 1000 people injured from shattering glass and explosions.  We have been to Russia several times and her people hold a special place in our hearts, so I have been praying for them this morning.  Praying and thinking….when things out of our control happen, where do I turn?  Where is my hope?  Jesus is my hope, my strong and mighty fortress that will never, ever change or fall; my future that is steady and predictable and good.

“My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from Him.  He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.”  – Psalm 62:1-2
Whatever comes your way today, run fast and hide in his fortress; He will protect you and never leave you.  Blessings, Lisa
