Everlasting Arms







"God, you're my refuge. I trust in you and I'm safe!" Psalm 91:2 NLT

My God You are my refuge. I trust in you and I am safe. You rescue me from hidden traps, shielding me from deadly hazards. Your huge outstretched arms protect me - under them I am perfectly safe; your arms fend off all harm. I fear nothing because God you are my refuge, the High God my very own home, Evil can't get close to me, harm can't get through the door. You Lord have ordered your angels to guard me wherever I go. If I stumble, they will catch me; their job is to keep me from falling. "If you'll hold on to me for dear life," says God, "I'll get you out of any trouble. I'll give you the best of care if you'll only get to know and trust me. Call me and I'll answer, be at your side in bad times; I'll rescue you. Psalm 91

Lord You heard my call and you rescued me when I felt hopeless and all alone, despair surrounding me. When I felt unloved, drowning in my sorrows, walking in doubt and confusion Your arms held me close. You drew me into Your arms when my confidence was failing unable to fine peace. Alone I lacked strength and You picked me up and held me in Your strong arms, Your everlasting arms. Oh my Lord in Your arms I feel safe and loved. You are my everlasting help.

I am speaking these very words to HIM daily in light of the captivity He has recently freed me from.

Thanks for sharing.

Blessings God Chaser~Wilnette...I love your artwork you use and Psalm 91 is my favorite for guarding me & people in wars such as our soldiers!

Praise the Lord, my Rock & my Refuge! In Him, alone, I trust! I'm so thankful that when I stumble, He never fails to catch me or send in His angels as guardians. Since I am out of my "home country", I depend on My Lord constantly to defend. He is my rescue at all times as He keeps me safe & out of trouble.

Thank you for your visit last WFW!
I'm catching up as I can!
