'We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.' Romans 5:3 NLT
Living in the Valley of Shadows
We have the first rain of fall
There is no shadow today
We can't see the sun
Students want to dance in the rain instead of doing school work
My quilt has been aired out for the winter and covers the daybed
I am thankful that my windshield wipers worked
We will get at least 25 inches of rain before summer
The time to curl up and read a book
I am instead waiting for the storm to clear and head to Redding
Still looking for work
Still waiting for the open door
My van is sitting under a fall tree
Stand up straight
God has a purpose and a plan
The shadow only mean that God has my back
JOY DARE ~ Day 22 - 1 Gift Silent, 1 Gift Still, 1 Gift Strong
1) Silent of the clouds
2) The Stillness that my heart desires
3) The strength of the Lord
Praise the LORD!
Blessed is the man who fears the LORD,
who greatly delights in his commandments!
His offspring will be mighty in the land;
the generation of the upright will be blessed.
Wealth and riches are in his house,
and his righteousness endures forever.
Light dawns in the darkness for the upright;
he is gracious, merciful, and righteous.
It is well with the man who deals generously and lends;
who conducts his affairs with justice.
For the righteous will never be moved;
he will be remembered forever.
He is not afraid of bad news;
his heart is firm, trusting in the LORD.
His heart is steady; he will not be afraid,
until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.
He has distributed freely; he has given to the poor;
his righteousness endures forever;
his horn is exalted in honor.
The wicked man sees it and is angry;
he gnashes his teeth and melts away;
the desire of the wicked will perish!
(Psalm 112 ESV)
