Word Filled Wednesday

Word Filled Wednesday is an opportunity to share God's Word. It has been such a blessing to me joining the other bloggers who are sharing in Word Filled Wednesday over at 160 Acre Woods.


This verse is very special to me. Years ago as a newlywed, my husband got a job which entailed him working shift work. He would have to work night shift sometimes and as a young wife, I would promptly go to my mother's house to sleep! For a few years following, day shift was the normal - YEAH! Then a great opportunity came for a different job with an increase in salary - but it was all night shift. By then we had children and it was not so easy to run to Mama's house. I made the decision to stick it out and stay home. This was a biggie as I was a huge chicken - scared of everything. Only a day or two before his new job began, as I was reading the Bible - this verse jumped out at me. I realized that safety comes only from God. There was no need for me to fret, worry or stay awake, God was in control and I could lie down and sleep for He alone would keep me. Nothing I could do could keep me safe, only God. So, I printed this verse out, kept it under my pillow, repeated it out loud each night before bed and guess what... God saw us through! It was a big faith increase for me in my Christian walk - God is able!

  3. That's a great verse! For a time, my older son had fears at night and we would read Scriptures about fear and safety before bed. It's wonderful to know our safety comes from the Lord. Who is more powerful than He?
