“The LORD is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear?

Maybe you have spent much of yesterday anxious and feeling out of sorts, where a multitude of emotions ranging from intense pain and anger to complete happiness and joy. Where it’s been a challenging day to say the least. Sadly, in the midst of this challenging day maybe you lost sight a little of how God has been working in your life. You got so consumed with the hurt that you lost sight of the Kingdom and the King. I hope this message helps you focus your gaze upward instead of inward by reminding you that our Father in Heaven is for you and is looking out for you. 

 “The LORD is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1

 

Psalm 27 should really be a life verse for us. It should be where we run in times of turmoil and meet the truth and love of our God. It reminds me that there is always a place to go in times of need. It reminds me that there is never a reason to feel alone because even in the darkest places in our minds and the deepest places in our hearts God is able to shelter us in His love.

 

Life is not without adversity and following Jesus is not without its share of trials and tribulations. Jesus promised that it would be this way; that in following Him the earthly result would not always seem all that rewarding; that the people we care about and serve will sometimes hurt us.

 

So what’s the application? I think for me Psalm 27 reminds me that my relationship with God is one of pure dependence.  He is my rock and He is my shelter. My job is to seek Him, do what He tells me to do, and know that in all my activities He is there looking out for me.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!

  1. While I harbor grave concerns about the coming Election, I have NOT the faintest doubt that God is CHARGE……

    Still it is a mystery that God tolerates what He does. And TRULY He is our Light and OUR salvation if we but have faith until the end.

    Thank you

    God Bless,
    Patrick
