I’ve had so many people ask me “how are you doing”? And it blesses my heart to know people care. They don’t realize how powerful that one little question can be. It expresses a sympathy, even if the person has no idea what you’re going through.
Most of the time I was able to say “I’m going to be okay.” And I meant it.
What I didn’t tell them was how I knew this.
My little secret is in the photo. On my first day “out in real life”, I carried this promise in my pocket. And when I felt the tears coming or the ache knocking at the door of my heart again, I could pat my pocket and know that, yes . . . . . I was going to be okay. I had His promise.
“The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.” ~ Psalm 121:6
I have thought so much on this verse and there is one place I know this can take place. It is in one of the most sheltered places a person can rest.
And that is under the shadow of His wing. Neither the sun nor the moon can smite me there.
It is there that my soul is safe and it is there that I have been hiding.
