The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:17-18
These words from King David remind me how I cry out to you, My Lord. Why has the enemy attacked me, persecuted me over and over, no matter how I try to walk with you Lord each and every day, I can hear the hurtful words behind me, and so many things seem to go wrong. All that my soul longs to do, is to serve you my Lord, for when I do serve it brings me such great joy deep within my soul. I am not perfect, just a simple woman who longs to please you, who fears you Oh God and notman, but it is the sharp tongue of a human that does so much harm to another. The more that I want to share with others how much you love your children, the more I seem to be under attack, in one way or another, anywhere I turn the attacks continue. In the stillness of the night my heart cries out to you Lord, I just long to walk so closely with you on the path of righteousness.
I hear your voice gently and quietly in my heart, that you are my God and that you are with me. You will uphold me with your righteous right hand. Let your words enfold me like a warm blanket, sheltering me from the coldness of fear and dismay. When trouble seems to be stalking me, Iwill grip your hand ever so tightly and stay in communication with you through my prayers. I will trust and not be afraid, for you Lord are my strength and my shield. Your powerful presence is with me at all times, and I will remember I do not face anything alone. I know somehow you will give me the strength that I need to get through the day, and your love for me as your child will bring me such wonderful joy and peace. Your righteous hand holds me up in both good and bad times in my life. When things are going well in my life I am unaware of your sustaining presence. When I walk through the valley I shall cling to you, my Lord and my Redeemer, the “Great I Am” Your right hand sustains me during these times of affliction, enabling me to keep one foot in front of the other. As I endure different trials in my life, help me to continue to trust you and only you My Lord. Shall you bless me in the midst of a hardship, and I know that you can make all things new again. You shall reach down into the valley of my affliction and you will remind me ever so gentle that “Joy Will Come In the Morning.

Psalm 34 blesses believers with encouragement to sustain each for another day. His grace and peace will deliver joy.
Amen to that
