‘For you are my rock and my fortress; and for your name's sake you lead me and guide me... ‘
Today I need to hold on to this truth in a special way. Because yesterday I got some bad news about my job, due to my long and severe illness.
I feel sad, or even numb, but this I know:
God was my rock and my fortress when I lost my health and most of my normal life years ago, and He still is. He leads me and guides me every single day; to find Him in a deeper way, to find peace, and to find gratitude in the midst of my pain and suffering.
And I believe this will continue to be true.
God will be my rock and my fortress whatever happens with my job.
He will lead me and guide me, always to something new and better.
I choose to see and trust that I am held and protected and led, by God’s Love.
I don’t have to be afraid.
And for me, that alone is a miracle. [ Psalms 31:1-5 ] ”In you, O Lord, do I take refuge; let me never be put to shame; in your righteousness deliver me!
Incline your ear to me; rescue me speedily!
Be a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me!
For you are my rock and my fortress; and for your name's sake you lead me and guide me; you take me out of the net they have hidden for me, for you are my refuge.
Into your hand I commit my spirit; you have redeemed me, O Lord, faithful God.”
