Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. He has given me a wonderful husband and two children. He also allowed me work at a Christian-run bookstore for 8 years, before giving me the privilege and challenge of being a stay at home mom.
This is the scripture that the Lord has given me for this period in my life. I have it posted on the wall of my closet. I don't read it everyday, but it is always there reminding me...
Whatever it is we are seeking or asking for, big or small, He is all we need! I am learning that even if the answer does not come quickly, Jesus is there. He is all I need. I don't need answers to my requests, I don't need to be afraid of what may or may not happen. I do need to seek Him, follow Him, love Him, and live for Him everyday. If I do that, all the stuff that I am worried about, will fade into the reality of the Eternal Hope that I have in Him. Don't get me wrong, there are things that I will continue to pray for, important things that I am counting on God to take care of; but like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, I choose to say even if I am thrown into a blazing fire, the God I serve is able to deliver me from it, but if He does not, He is still God and He is still Good!
The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.
One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tentand set me high upon a rock.
Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord.
Hear my voice when I call, Lord; be merciful to me and answer me. My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, Lord, I will seek. Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, God my Savior. Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me. Teach me your way, Lord; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors. Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, spouting malicious accusations.
I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
