My source of Strength

When my heart was embittered And I was pierced within, Then I was senseless and ignorant; I was {like} a beast before You. Nevertheless I am continually with You; You have taken hold of my right hand. With Your counsel You will guide me, And afterward receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven {but You?} And besides You, I desire nothing on earth. My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. For, behold, those who are far from You will perish; You have destroyed all those who are unfaithful to You. But as for me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, That I may tell of all Your works.

Wow.  I so needed to read this this morning.  I’ve had so much stress the last couple of days, I just couldn’t handle it.  When will I learn?  Finally I asked the Father for some help.  Suddenly a switch turned on in my brain.  The shadows fled before the light.  All the doubts and stress just melted away and ideas poured forth.

Anyway, I need to get back to my lesson plans, but I leave you with this song by the Newsboys:
