All this week I have had my bible laid open to these precious words. God is so wonderfully good. It is good to wait on Him and cry out to Him, expecting Him to meet our needs. He is so ready to love on us and be all that we need him to be. Truly, He gives us rest as we learn to abide in Him.
Psalms 31 (various verses)
Redeem me, O Lord, the God of truth.
I hate those who cling to worthless idols; I trust in the Lord. I will be glad and rejoice in your love, for you saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul. You have not handed me over to the enemy but have set my feet in a spacious place.
I trust in you, O Lord; I say, "You are my God." My times are in your hands.....
How great is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you, which you bestow in the sight of men on those who take refuge in you.......in your dwelling you keep them safe from accusing tongues.
Praise be to the Lord, for he showed his wonderful love to me....
Love the Lord, all his saints! The Lord perserves the faithful......Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord.
