Psalm 27 has always been a familiar Psalm for both Nick and I. But it has not ministered to me in such a way as it did this morning.
It was kind of coincidental actually, to be reading this Psalm. But our loving God has His ways of reaching out to us in our despondency and sadness.
It was actually my beloved son that inspired me to turn to this Psalm as we had our morning routine of Sunday school songs and Bible stories together, our special mother and son bonding time everyday. Since it was the 27th of the month, I decided to read to him the 27th Psalm. As I read, I felt tears falling freely from my eyes. Every verse just seemed to jump out from the Bible and I felt the loving and assuring hug of God through His promises.
When I first started this blog, it was mainly for me to chronicle my journey through heartbreak and illness, and to remind myself of God’s faithfulness and grace through the difficult seasons in my life.
But over the years, even as my blog has gained steady followers and readers from near and far, I’ve found it harder to write from my heart as I was afraid to be ‘venting’ instead of expressing, and complaining instead of inspiring.
But I am reminded today that this is no smooth and perfect journey, I am just a sojourner in this life.
I pray that as you read this blog, you will not only catch or see the struggles and challenges I go through, but see the hand of God and His grace in my life.
