“The heavens delcare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge.
There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun, which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion, like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one ened of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is hidden from its heat.
The law of the Lord is PERFECT, REVIVING THE SOUL.
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are right, giving JOY to the HEART.
The commands of the Lord are RADIANT, giving LIGHT to the EYES.
The fear of the Lord is PURE, enduring forever.
The ordinances of the Lord are sure and altogether RIGHTEOUS.
They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb.
By them your servant is warned; in keeping them there is great reward.
Who can discern his errors? Forgive my hidden faults.
Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me,
Then will I be blameless, innocent of great transgression.
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight,
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.”
It feels SO great to be healthy. Clean, pure water, a stronger antibiotic, consistent vitamins, God’s Word, and lots of prayer have REVIVED my soul and brought JOY to my heart, and LIGHT to my eyes. The second antibiotic kicked that month long sickness and we are praying consistently together as a family for the Lord to protect each of us here from any more sickness. The kids have been constantly sick too ever since we got here 18 months ago. My husband has been kept free from sickness pretty much the entire time, and we are so thankful for his constant help and support. He has carried us through our time here 🙂 Sickness always helps me understand my weakness and HIS strength. I’m thankful to have learned more how to depend on others.
I’m so glad to not be numb anymore. To not be in a fog. And to be delivered from any attacks from the Enemy on my mind. Constant prayer was the only way to have victory over that one. And to be constantly in the Word. The Lord always told me, “Is your mind Stayed on me?” “Are you developing a spiritually focused mind?” “Are you cultivating a disciplined mind?” “Are you taking each thought captive to me?” “Are you rejecting the thoughts from the Enemy and recognizing them as from him and not me?” The Lord was my ready help, full of compassion, MY REFUGE, and quick to save me. I have never before in my life learned as much about God’s ability to be our refuge than I have here. There are SO many verses on it! Perhaps I shall collect some of the most helpful “REFUGE” verses to me and post them here soon. I can remember another time in my life praying for victory from the Enemy on my mind consistently. He delivered me then and He has delivered me now. I’m so thankful.
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer!
Thank-you, Lord, for your healing physically and spiritually. This is the day you have made, let us rejoice and be glad in it! Let the heavens declare your glory and majesty as we all look up to them today. Let all the earth praise your holy name!
