The Lord will take me in

Psalm 27
A Song of Trust in God
Of David.
1 The Lord is my light and the one who saves me. So why should I fear anyone? The Lord protects my life. So why should I be afraid?
2 Evil people may try to destroy my body. My enemies and those who hate me attack me, but they are overwhelmed and defeated.
3 If an army surrounds me, I will not be afraid. If war breaks out, I will trust the Lord.
4 I ask only one thing from the Lord. This is what I want: Let me live in the Lord’s house all my life. Let me see the Lord’s beauty and look with my own eyes at his Temple.
5 During danger he will keep me safe in his shelter. He will hide me in his Holy Tent, or he will keep me safe on a high mountain.
6 My head is higher than my enemies around me. I will offer joyful sacrifices in his Holy Tent. I will sing and praise the Lord.
7 Lord, hear me when I call; have mercy and answer me.
8 My heart said of you, “Go, worship him.” So I come to worship you, Lord.
9 Do not turn away from me. Do not turn your servant away in anger; you have helped me. Do not push me away or leave me alone, God, my Savior.
10 If my father and mother leave me, the Lord will take me in.
11 Lord, teach me your ways, and guide me to do what is right because I have enemies.
12 Do not hand me over to my enemies, because they tell lies about me and say they will hurt me.
13 I truly believe I will live to see the Lord’s goodness.
14 Wait for the Lord’s help. Be strong and brave, and wait for the Lord’s help.

When do you consider yourself forsaken?
When you are left in infancy in the care of others?
When you lie on a hospital bed dying of malnutrition?
Or when you are struggling as a single parent and sending funds to help others in more need?

When is enough… enough?

True freedom is totaling letting go of all wrongs committed against you in the name of “love” and understand that true “love” is the one given by God.

I needed both Mother and Father to forsake me to realize that God has been with me all along.

In infancy.. while in the care of others; while lying in that hospital bed for lack of food; while struggling as a single parent to make ends meet- and still getting an advanced degree.
No matter what I’ve done… No matter who I have become… Through the Grace of God….. I am forgiven. And that is true freedom.

Since the bizarre chaos of the last few days—My children have never smiled as much. My DH looks at me with pride in his eyes, and my headache is completely gone because I’ve finally reached enough

And I know that I know that I know

God is the Father of the fatherless.
God is the Mother to the motherless.

So……… It’s all good.

Because God is Good.

Live stress free,
