Lord, when doubts fill my mind, when my heart is in turmoil, quiet me and give me renewed hope and cheer.
~Psalm 94:19, TLB
Stay calm, trust Jesus with everything and remember, there is no panic in heaven.
I was reading Psalm 94 in the MESSAGE yesterday and this passage really spoke to me. This Psalm describes in detail what’s going on right now in these disunited states…
God, put an end to evil;
avenging God, show your colors!
Judge of the earth, take your stand;
throw the book at the arrogant.
3-4 God, the wicked get away with murder—
how long will you let this go on?
They brag and boast
and crow about their crimes!
5-7 They walk all over your people, God,
exploit and abuse your precious people.
They take out anyone who gets in their way;
if they can’t use them, they kill them.
They think, “God isn’t looking,
Jacob’s God is out to lunch.”
Sounds like he is describing the Clintons and the democratic party but I also like verses 16-19 because they speak to my need.
Who stood up for me against the wicked?
Who took my side against evil workers?
If God hadn’t been there for me,
I never would have made it.
The minute I said, “I’m slipping, I’m falling,”
your love, God, took hold and held me fast.
When I was upset and beside myself,
you calmed me down and cheered me up.
I am sure this was God’s word to me yesterday, CALM DOWN AND CHEER UP.
June and I are very sorry about Johnny Burnett’s promotion. We were so it hopes he could pull through. Betty is at Pecks today making arrangements. Our deepest sympathy to Betty and Ben.
Covid is like a roller coaster; as sure as I get to feeling better, here is comes again with a vengeance. I do think the medicine has helped. I didn’t have any at first but I am taking a Z-pack and antibiotic but nothing stops the cough. This is not working out the way I had planned. I have not been able to do anything and I had hoped to get a lot done at the farm during my quarantine. If you can avoid covid, do so. Of course it does affect different people different ways and I am 71 with a lung condition. I know one thing: if I do a shake it, I do not want to get it again.
