  1. Thank you for sharing God’s word to calm my fears, give ease to a troubling mind, and find comfort in his arms.

  2. I do needed to hear this today. I’m feeling so discouraged & anxious about my family’s brokenness, I need to be still & let God be God. He’s bigger then this brokeness.

  3. My husband and I just moved south from Maine. Our hearts are heavy for our family still in Maine after the mass shooting this past week. Please pray as the long road to healing begins physically, mentally and emotionally. May God have mercy.

  4. Thank you for valuable insight my heart needed to be reminded of. I love how you italicized first & second words in Psalm 37:1-9, NLT. I added rest of verse after —

    Don’t worry– about the wicked
    Trust– in the Lord
    Commit– everything you do to the Lord
    Trust Him– & He will help you
    Be still– in the presence of the Lord
    Don’t worry– about evil people who prosper
    Stop — being angry
    Turn — from your rage
    Do not lose– your temper

    What a great way to intentionally focus our thoughts on the Lord. Thank You Jesus that as we read Your Living Word, our body, soul & mind is transformed.

  5. In Courage,

    We must remember God is in control of this world & our lives. Our job is to simply trust Him with our whole hearts, minds & souls. He alone will handle the situations of the world-especially the war in Israel.

    My work ethic is summed up in Colossians 3:23-24 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. I don’t work for the applause of man, but God. Greater Vision’s “Start with Well Done” is my anthem for life. Here is the chorus: Only two words will fulfill me When I see his face For there’s eternal meaning In this one little phrase
    When this life is over And the next ones begun I want it to start with Well Done!

    Everyone simply take your cares & worries to God. He alone can & will handle all of them big or small.

    Have a blessed week!!

    Blessings 🙂

    • Beth, Thank you, thank you! Isn’t this Colossians 3:23-24 verse such a gem!

      I find I can spin a downward spiral right side up when I read this.

      Keeping Working for God!

  6. It’s not easy to think of adjectives that really express how I feel since I have observed a lot of T.V. News segments regarding excursions in Gaza and Israel.

    I’m a mother but I don’t have any sons but in Israel daughters participate in learning about combat for three mandatory military volunteer years. Education is always valuable but we all learn in different ways. I want to Pray effectively for Israel. Because my ways and God’s Ways are so far apart and so different, I will not be able to truly understand how these “war” scrimmages are explained.

    I love children and I am concerned about the widows and orphans. Love and compassion is what will help some. Food, water, clothes, medicine and personal hygiene products will help also.

    We mothers are cut from different cloths than fathers. Both are needed and loved by God.

    One day we will talk about the year 2023 (Israel Attacked by Hamas) and
    2020 – 2022 (Covid-19 Losses).

    Let’s keep Praying !


  7. Today as I wait with my daughter to get a breast biopsy for a moderately suspicious lump, I read this. It brought such comfort to be reminded that He is as close as the very breath we breathe. I shared this with her for comfort as she was going through the procedure. Thanks for the encouragement.
