Scripture References;

Psalm 16 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

Psalm 16

Confidence in the LORD

1 Protect me, God, for I take refuge in You. (A)

2 I [a] said to the LORD, “You are my Lord;
I have no good besides You.” (B) [b]

3 As for the holy people who are in the land, (C)
they are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.

4 The sorrows of those who take another [god]
for themselves multiply;
I will not pour out their drink offerings of blood,
and I will not speak their names with my lips. (D)

5 LORD, You are my portion [c]
and my cup [of blessing];
You hold my future. (E)

6 The boundary lines have fallen for me
in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. (F)

7 I will praise the LORD who counsels me (G)
even at night my conscience instructs me. (H)

8 I keep the LORD in mind [d] always.
Because He is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken. (I)

9 Therefore my heart is glad,
and my spirit rejoices;
my body also rests securely. (J)

10 For You will not abandon me to Sheol; (K)
You will not allow Your Faithful One to see the Pit. (L) [e]

11 You reveal the path of life to me;
in Your presence is abundant joy; (M)
in Your right hand are eternal pleasures.

Today is a happy day.  It is my 23rd wedding anniversary!  My husband is home today, because He hurt his back, but he is on the mend. I have been having a little bit of physical/emotional trouble. I had some lab work done, and need to go back for a little more, but the doctor said it probably wasn’t serious. I wish I could say that I have been resting in  the promises found in the word better, but sometimes we don’t. I know the Lord is good, and I have so much for which to be thankful. I am just one of those types of people who is prone to fret and have anxiety attacks. I take spells. I might go for months without having one; in fact, up until 2 years ago I didn’t have them at all, except for a spell when my 22 year old son was a little infant. There are so many things that I just don’t understand.

Today is a good day so far and I am thankful for this opportunity to think about the Lord and His word.
