I’m sorry it has been a long time since I have made a post. There are numerous reasons why. The main reason is that sometimes I just get in a ‘funk’ and retreat into my ‘hole of isolation.’ I guess it’s a coping mechanism of sorts…a comforting, safe place when the troubles of life get to be too much to bear, and more than I can handle. I just shut down. I do believe there is a reason for it, though. Most of the time, there always ends up being something the Lord and I are working through.
You know what? I always find that Jesus is the answer for everything! I just forget to keep my eyes on Him. When I get my eyes back on the right thing, everything else seems to fall into place.
Sometimes I just lose interest in blogging, or I’m not taking any pictures. I like to post pictures when I make a blog post. Sometimes I just get busy, and other times…I just let life and circumstance get in the way and I forget to notice and be thankful for all of the little things I’m blessed with. I think that’s the first step in having something to share with someone else.
I’ve mentioned before how much I love reading out of the “Living Bible”. I read a Psalm this morning that I thought I would share with you today. I hope it blesses you as much as it did me!
Hopefully, I will be back to blogging about the happenings around here soon!
To You, O Lord, I pray. Don’t fail me, Lord, for I am trusting you. Don’t let my enemies succeed. Don’t give them victory over me. None who have faith in God will ever be disgraced for trusting Him. But all who harm the innocent shall be defeated.
Show me the path where I should go, O Lord; point out the right road for me to walk. Lead me; teach me; for you are the God who gives me salvation. I have no hope except in you. Overlook my youthful sins. O Lord! Look at me instead through eyes of mercy and forgiveness, through eyes of everlasting love and kindness.
The Lord is good and glad to teach the proper path to all who go astray; He will teach the ways that are right and best to those who humbly turn to Him. And when we obey Him, every path He guides us on is fragrant with His loving kindness and His truth.
But Lord, my sins! How many they are. Oh, pardon them for the honor of Your name.
Where is the man who fears the Lord? God will teach him how to choose the best.
He shall live within God’s circle of blessing, and his children shall inherit the earth.
Friendship with God is reserved for those who reverence Him. With them, alone, He shares the secrets of His promises.
My eyes are ever looking to the Lord for help, for He alone can rescue me. Come, Lord, and show me your mercy, for I am helpless, overwhelmed, in deep distress; my problems go from bad to worse. Oh, save me from them all! See my sorrows; feel my pain forgive my sins. See how many enemies I have and how viciously they hate me! Save me from them! Deliver my life from their power! Oh, let it never be said that I trusted you in vain!
Assign to me Godliness and Integrity as my bodyguards, for I expect you to protect me and to ransom Israel from all her troubles.
