God; Thank You for Your Protection

It is the beginning of the year, 2023. Everyone steps into a new year with resolutions or changes that they wish to make within their lives. Many people do this because they yearn to make their lives better. However, I am a bit different, as we all know. I love my life. I love the way my life is, right now. I am content. And this past Sunday proved just how content I am.

This past Sunday, which was January 1; I had the pleasure of opening the service with prayer. You see, at my church, they have about 20 or 30 minutes before the service where there is just prayer. If someone needs to be prayed over or if they have prayer requests; then it is taken care of and brought to God then. This is usually done by the pastor. However, as with the new year comes changes. She asked if I could lead the prayer, and I jumped on it! I was honored.

I am generally extremely nervous or anxious; but not then. I was excited and I was honored. I felt as though I was there for everyone else, not myself. I was having a conversation with God, no one else. That is when this verse; Psalm 32:7 came into my mind. It is explained perfectly: "You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance". There could not have been a more perfect verse given to me at this very moment.

As I paced back and forth before the congregation praying, I just kept thinking to myself how blessed I am to have such a wonderful God that protects me. God protects me from anything that wishes to cause me harm. Because I knew this already I was able to pray over my friends with no problem. It takes a lot for me to be proud of myself, but I really was.

Now that the holidays are over and we are in the swing of day-to-day living; I have to continuously remind myself of this verse. I have to continually thank God for being my hiding place. I have to continually thank God for protecting me from trouble. I have to continually thank God for surrounding me with songs of deliverance. I don't deserve any of it, but I am so grateful for all of it!

Love Y'all, Until Next Time!
