Wow, thanks for sharing! What an amazing and encouraging verse!
It is so true in what I have been studying and writing about….9/11. Tough subject, yet the more I study and write the more I see of the light and truth in the midst of tragic circumstances!

@eden-anderson, Thank you so much for sharing this! Waiting is something I’m not very good at, being an extrovert and social butterfly. XP But I’m learning (very slowly, I will admit). So this is very encouraging. 🙂

And what you heard in church-so true!
You are very welcome! I was blessed to be able to do this.
Yes, 9/11 was a heartbreaking time…so much hate and pain. But light shines through even the darkest of times. I hope your story contiues to go well!
I am glad you found it encouraging!
Awww, thanks! It touches my heart to know that others were encouraged by this! ❤
Isn’t amazing though, how often we miss the little gems of truth throughout the Bible because we are too busy to stop and realize what God is actually trying to tell us?! I find myself with this problem far to often…so I am really glad that @h-jones started this!
Yeah, me too. I am exactly the same way. But God is teaching me the importance of slowing down and learning to trust in him! Glad this encouraged you! ❤❤

Alright everyone, I guess it’s my turn to do this. 🙂
This verse really stuck out to me when I was battling fear. I’m talking irrational, keep-me-awake-at-night fear. It was bad. I was especially struggling one night, and just felt like I was just being attacked by my fears, when I remembered this verse:
You are a hiding-place for me,
you will keep me from distress;
you will surround me
with songs of deliverance. (Selah)
It gave and still gives me so much peace to realize that God is a hiding-place for me. And all of us. Our Defender. He doesn’t leave us alone to battle the enemy, but delivers us and surrounds us with songs.
Hope that encourages you. 🙂

Thank you so much for sharing this, Chalice! What a beautiful verse! And such powerful meaning.
I too have struggled with irrational fear and anxiety and it is important that I remember verses like this.
Fear is SO strong, but God is stronger.
Thank you! This was a blessing to me. ❤

Wow, thanks for sharing that, Chalice!
When I was young (6-9ish) I kept a diary that I would write verses down in at night to keep me from being afraid in the dark of my room. 🙂 Verses from Psalms like this were the ones that I loved esp. Such wisdom, comfort, and truth!
Great verses, Chalice. Thanks and Merry Christmas to you all!
