Work can be rough.
People can be difficult.
For about 30 seconds I had a pity party with myself, and thought about how I was SO tired of fighting for myself, all by myself. Sometimes I just want someone to stick up for me. Sometimes being single doesn't help with this battle...
But then God pretty much instantly reminded me that He was my protector.
"You are my hiding place;
you will protect me from trouble
and surround me with songs of deliverance.
"for he guards the course of the just
and protects the way of his faithful ones."
It's easy to worry about the future... what could be. It's easy to try and control things with your own two hands, and your own set of lips. It's easy to become discouraged because you feel as if the powers at be may be against you.
But today, today I felt like God really had my back. In one moment so vulnerable, and the next - covered by the shield of the Lord.
Thank you, Lord.
