“I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.” Psalm 116:1-2


We sometimes sing a chorus in church, “If it had not been the Lord who was on my side, tell me where would I be?”

Sometimes as we look back over our lives, we realize that life would have been a lot different if we had not come to know the Lord when we were younger.  We see others that walked a different path and where their lives are today.  It makes me thankful that I heard about Jesus when I was just a child, and that He has kept me though the years.

Though I may not have always walked as close to Him as I should, yet He kept me from a lot of things that could have destroyed my life.  His mercy and His love have been extended to me over the years, He has always been there when I called on Him and He has never failed me.  Now I can look back at all those times, and realize that He is able to keep me until He calls me home.

Prayer:  Lord Jesus, I love you, and thank you for always being there for me every step of the way.  My hope and trust is in you alone.
