“For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.” Psalms 91:3-4 Have you ever felt vulnerable? I am the type of person who hates to be seen as weak,struggling or…vulnerable. But at the end of the day, I am still human. Being a Christian doesn’t elevate me beyond my human flaws, I will still make mistakes, and I will always be in need of a Savior. I will be faced with whatever life…
ul>“If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them wanders away, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others on the hills and go out to search for the one that is lost?” (Matthew 18:12 Holy Bible, New Living Translation). If anyone has ever gone missing from your community, especially a child, you remember the dedicated efforts to locate that person. Panic turned to organization, involvement and support. Volunteers forgot daily routine and plunged into the search, often leaving other family at home. Jesus told the story of the missing sheep as a reminder where the shepherd cares so much for a missing sheep, he leaves the flock safely behind to rescue one lost sheep. If you’ve gone missing, or wandered away, hang on. Rescue is on the way.
Prayer : Thanks for bringing me home, Lord. Amen.

“I give you all the credit, God – you got me out of that mess, you didn’t let my foes gloat” Psalm 30:1 (The Message version of the Holy Bible).
Messes are a part of life. I clean my house and within a matter of hours – sometimes just a few minutes, someone makes a mess. The Psalmist David was in a mess, but God got him out. The truth of the matter is we were all in a mess. But God, saw something in us that He could remake to be useful for His Kingdom. If that doesn’t make you feel good today, I don’t know what will! Take a few minutes to thank God for bringing you out!
Prayer: Thank You, Lord, for reaching down and lifting me out of the deep miry clay and setting me on the Rock, Christ Jesus!
