"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?... 14Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord."
Psalm 27: 1, 14 King James Version (KJV)
IF NOT FOR THE LORD
Looking back over my life, I know it was the Lord that brought me through. Making it through adversities from a very young age until today, I know I would not be here today had it not been for the Lord on my side. When there are trials and tribulations, I fall on my knees and when I arise I know all will be well because I have given it to the Lord. When I don't know where to go or what to do, I look to the Lord who will show me the way and give me strength and courage to just hold on. Today, I am anxious for nothing. Thank you Lord for your wisdom, guidance, mercy and grace and thank you for your son, Jesus.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the strength and courage which allows me to hold on in good and bad times. Amen. Submitted by Mother Deacon Lueretha Murphy
