July 17 Rescued

Last year’s reflection in light of this week’s national news seems appropriate to repost. God is faithful.

What's The Good Word?

1 Chronicles 24:1-26:11;  Romans 4:1-12;  Psalm 13:1-6;  Proverbs 19:15-16

“How long, O Lord?  Will you forget me forever?  How long will you hide your face from me?  How long must I take counsel in my soul and have sorrow in my heart all the day?  How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?  Consider and answer me, O Lord, my God;  light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death, lest my enemies say, “I have prevailed over him,” lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken.  But I have trusted in your steadfast love;  my heart shall rejoice in your Salvation.  I will sing to the Lord for he has dealt bountifully with me.” Psalm 13: 1-6

There are days when the sun

shines brightly,

but my eyes dimly see

for the anguish

which clouds my vision.

Dark times

deep inside me
