Mercy for Monday! We need some!

So, I missed my first devotional post last week! My sincerest apologies! I honestly did not know if I was coming or going. I haven't been that busy in a long time, and I was exhausted!

There have been lots of prayer needs around here! Maybe the spiritual battle is what is wearing on me! But, if you are praying, please remember the following:

  • Gerald, continued healing from his stroke. His family for peace and rest

  • Dorothy, in the hospital after a fall. A faithful prayer warrior

  • Loren, my "daughter" in the spiritual realm, a young diabetic battling the flu and in the hospital trying to get better

  • Zach & Melissa, fighting hard to help their unborn child. . .surgery tomorrow

  • Linda, salvation

Psalm 121:1-8(NASB)
"I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; From where shall my help come? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is your keeper; The LORD is your shade on your right hand. The sun will not smite you by day, Nor the moon by night. The LORD will protect you from all evil; He will keep your soul. The LORD will guard your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forever."

Look up! He is there! We serve a personal God. . .not a statue that is unmoving nor a multitude of gods not powerful enough to do it all! He did it all, He does it all! He created all we see. Jehovah God, the Covenant God (YHWH) who is our keeper, who gives us shade when we are overheated, who is able to keep our souls (without our help!), our protector, our watch tower! Praise You Jesus! You are in all things!

Thank you that your mercies are new every morning!
