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!
