I have been reading from Mom's Bible today. It has been, like most things today, bittersweet. Here are some of the passages I've been meditating on today, with the notes/italics/emphases from Mom:
Cast your burden upon the Lord, and He will sustain you;
He will never allow the righteous to be shaken . . .
But I will trust in Thee
- Ps 55:22-23
When I am afraid,
I will put my trust in Thee.
In God, whose word I praise,
In God I have put my trust;
I shall not be afraid. (fighting to get eyes off circumstances & deliberately putting trust in God)
Thou has taken account of my wanderings; (God sees all!)
Put my tears in Thy bottle;
Are they not in Thy book?
- Ps 56:3-4, 8
Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me,
For my soul takes refuge in Thee (God is the only sure refuge!)
And in the shadow of Thy wings I will take refuge,
Until destruction passes by.
- Ps. 57: 1-2
