Cling to This!

Just a passage or two that I wanted to share today.

(Isaiah 38:14) 
Like a crane or a swallow, so did I chatter: I did mourn as a dove: mine eyes fail with looking upward: O LORD, I am oppressed; undertake for me.

(Psalms 71:19-24
 Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee! Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth. Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side. I will also praise thee with the psaltery, even thy truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel.  My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed. My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.

(Isaiah 38:17)
  Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption: for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back.

Psalms 34 and New Design...!

This morning during my time with Jesus, I came across this verse and it was a blessing to me and I wanted to share it with you all!

“The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.”
(Psalms 34:22)

This verse tells us that even though sometimes we feel “desolate and afflicted(Psalms 25:16), God never has and never will “leave us nor forsake” us (Hebrews 13:5). This verse in Psalms 34 cross-references with 1st Kings 1: 29. In this verse, a dying King David looks back over his adventurous but very hard and trial filled life and realizes that even though it may not have felt like it at the time (for remember, he was also the one who penned the words of Psalms 34:22 at another time in his life) the LORD his GOD redeemed and delivered his soul out of ALL of its/his troubles and distresses! ALL of them! So take a moment to “greatly rejoice” and “sing” unto the LORD with all your soul, which HE has redeemed! (Psalms 71:23)  And for those of you dear sisters who are struggling in some way—“trust in Him!” He shall NOT leave you desolate! He’s holding you in the palm of His mighty hand! Trust in the One who redeemeth the souls of all His servants out of ALL their distresses! I am praying for you dear sisters! Stand strong in the battle!

Also, you may have noticed that my blog has recently undergone a makeover! A sweet sister in Christ and fellow blogger from Ladies of Virtue so generously gave of her time and extreme talent to make it the way it is now!!! J She added several new features to it as well! His Princess Warrior now has a button!! There's also a handy feature she added that I'm excited about-- I tend to list alot of Scripture that I don't quote, so now, if you rest your mouse/cursor over the Scripture it will come up and enable you to read it! I am SO thrilled with the new design, and I hope you all enjoy it as well!! I'd love to hear what ya'll think about! But I'd like to say "thankyou SO MUCH" to Ruth from Ladies of Virtue!! I greatly appreciate the awesome work you did!
