Psalm 34

Sunday in church, our worship pastor had us turn to the book of Psalms and read for a moment. This is the Psalm that my Bible fell open to. I thought it was very good for anyone going through a tough time or dealing with a disability. This is what I am meditating on this week.
Hope it blesses you.

Psalm 34

1
I will extol the LORD at all times;
his praise will always be on my lips.

2 My soul will boast in the LORD;
let the afflicted hear and rejoice.

3 Glorify the LORD with me;
let us exalt his name together.

4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.

5 Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.

6 This poor man called, and the LORD heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles.

7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them.

8 Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.

9 Fear the LORD, you his saints,
for those who fear him lack nothing.

10 The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.

11 Come, my children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the LORD.

12 Whoever of you loves life
and desires to see many good days,

13 keep your tongue from evil
and your lips from speaking lies.

14 Turn from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous
and his ears are attentive to their cry;

16 the face of the LORD is against those who do evil,
to cut off the memory of them from the earth.

17 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them;
he delivers them from all their troubles.

18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

19 A righteous man may have many troubles,
but the LORD delivers him from them all;

20 he protects all his bones,
not one of them will be broken.

21 Evil will slay the wicked;
the foes of the righteous will be condemned.

22 The LORD redeems his servants;
no one will be condemned who takes refuge in him.


Ruthie went to work with Daddy on Monday and the girls got carried away. They emailed these to me. Thanks Malinda and Jaime. Trent's words- "she went from being Chinese to being Polynesian"

What an awesome scripture with so many comforting promises- and a great song of triumph! Thank you! I also love the expression on your little one's face. Like she's a little stunned to be wearing that hot pink grass skirt. She is so cute- in any outfit!

Thanks for the reminder Ginny! As the time approaches to travel for Evan my fears are becoming overwhelming with "what if's".

Love Ruthie's outfit! :)
