Totally Wigging Out Here.

My stress level is through the roof. Overwhelmed. Anxious. Exhausted.

So I did what I am supposed to do. What I have to do each morning. I got down and looked up.

Psalm 107:13-15 became my own this morning.

13 Then I cried to the LORD in my trouble,
and he saved me from my distress.
14 He brought me out of my darkness and the deepest pit
and broke away all my chains.
15 I give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for me!

I have felt such a change in my prayer life since I started making scripture my own. Praying it in the first person. The Susan person. Inserting my own name, my own darkness and my deepest pits. I encourage you to do the same. He is so very good. He WILL answer. He WILL bless you.

He has me.


Continue Praying for Heather…

Blogger Friend, Heather, is having brain surgery on Thursday. Kelli has started a prayer chain. I’m sharing a Psalm I cling to…it’s also My Girl’s favorite Psalm.

Psalm 91

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

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.

5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,

6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.

8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.

9 If you make the Most High your dwelling—even the LORD, who is my refuge-

10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.

11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;

12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
