Thanks, everybody for praying! The Lord is giving me the grace, strength, and peace that I need, a moment at a time, a day at a time. Today is Day 1 of Plan B and beyond. I am in His Hands and that is a very good place to be.
Here are some Scriptures and thoughts that have been a special blessing to me lately that I have tacked up on the back of my front door. I’ve been going over them this morning and thought I’d share them with you. Feel free to share any others here that you’d like to too. :0)
So glad to be His daughter,
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 9
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.
10 But he knows the way that I take;
when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.
28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.” 3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
1 The Lord is my shepherd;
I have everything that I need.
2 He lets me rest in green meadows;
he leads me beside peaceful streams.
3 He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
bringing honor to his name.
4 Even when I walk
through the dark valley of death,[a]
I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
protect and comfort me.
5 You prepare a feast for me
in the presence of my enemies.
You welcome me as a guest, anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings.
6 Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me
all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord
He is God and I am not.
This battle is the Lord’s.
“Prayers are instantly noticed in heaven. Wherever there’s a heart big with sorrow. Or a lip quivering with agony. Or a deep groan of sadness, the heart of God is open.” Charles Spurgeon
