Where Strength Comes From....

   We are heading to the hospital in a few minutes. I was reading in Psalms this and God led me to this:

O LORD, hear my prayer,

listen to my cry for mercy;

in your faithfulness and righteousness

come to my relief.

 Do not bring your servant into judgment,

for no one living is righteous before you.



The enemy pursues me,

he crushes me to the ground;

he makes me dwell in darkness

like those long dead.



So my spirit grows faint within me;

my heart within me is dismayed.



 I remember the days of long ago;

I meditate on all your works

and consider what your hands have done.



I spread out my hands to you;

my soul thirsts for you like a parched land.

Selah



Answer me quickly, O LORD;

my spirit fails.

Do not hide your face from me

or I will be like those who go down to the pit.



Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,

for I have put my trust in you.

Show me the way I should go,

for to you I lift up my soul.



Rescue me from my enemies, O LORD,

for I hide myself in you.



Teach me to do your will,

for you are my God;

may your good Spirit

lead me on level ground.



For your name's sake, O LORD, preserve my life;

in your righteousness, bring me out of trouble.



In your unfailing love, silence my enemies;

destroy all my foes,

for I am your servant.

My 'foe' or 'enemy' today is fear and worry. Friends, it is not about having it all together but about in our weakness laying our needs and our trust before the Lord! He can walk with strength today where I only cower.
