So I was sitting down tonight to write a few encouraging letters to a(nother!) friend that is moving much too far away, but following God's direct plan for her family. In one letter, I included only verses that have stuck with me over the years. God's Word is ALL powerful and as I continue to learn and hide more in my heart, I continue to love Him even more! Cara is also doing great in Awanas, and it's nice to be memorizing with her. So, I thought I could start a short post on my blog once a week or so of a favorite verse and a memory associated with it. This one's for you Aimee, I didn't include it in your letter:
Psalm 32:7 (ESV)
"You are a hiding place for me;
you preserve me from trouble;
you surround me with shouts of deliverance.
I memorized this verse in the very first women's bible study I went through at Kingsland in the spring of 2008. It was a great study written by a counselor at our church, and it really helped me delve into some burdens I was holding onto in my life, as well as what generational sin is, and what I'd been claiming instead of releasing and asking forgiveness for! I can't help but be amazed that the Creator of the universe is MY hiding place. That I can always turn to Him when I'm in trouble and he will be (and always is) my rescue. Praise you Jesus for that!
