His help through Psalm 27

Good Morning! "Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ"!

I'm slowly but surely coming back and able to type more again but too much to do in a day and not enough hours since I have only partial use as a helper in my left hand and being slowed down for 4+ months has slowed me down even more. Will surely be working to get my strength back as the weather cools down for us down here in Florida. Only 68 degrees this morning, Hallelujah! 

I do have something to share with you this morning as someone on Facebook sparked my memory. My favorite Psalm is the one that firstly, God helped me to face prison by reading it numerous times and then every time it comes to mind since. As I've read it over and over again I realized that it used the be the first couple of verses that got to me the most but it changed to the 8th verse (large print) which just makes my heart leap and brings tears to my eyes! That was my turning point! Hallelujah!

*Psalm 27
New King James Version (NKJV)
An Exuberant Declaration of Faith

27 The Lord is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked came against me
To eat up my flesh,
My enemies and foes,
They stumbled and fell.
3 Though an army may encamp against me,
My heart shall not fear;
Though war may rise against me,
In this I will be confident.

4 One thing I have desired of the Lord,
That will I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
All the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the Lord,
And to inquire in His temple.
5 For in the time of trouble
He shall hide me in His pavilion;
In the secret place of His tabernacle
He shall hide me;
He shall set me high upon a rock.

6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me;
Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.

7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice!
Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
8 When You said, “Seek My face,”
My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”

9 Do not hide Your face from me;
Do not turn Your servant away in anger;
You have been my help;
Do not leave me nor forsake me,
O God of my salvation.
10 When my father and my mother forsake me,
Then the Lord will take care of me.

11 Teach me Your way, O Lord,
And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.
12 Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries;
For false witnesses have risen against me,
And such as breathe out violence.
13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.

14 Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!

Please keep praying! I'm on my way back!
