The prayer requests from just our church family brought together through disability continue to come – hospitalizations, surgeries, changes in medications, changes in diet, changes in diagnoses.
I’m grateful that my readings from the Bible are so full of terms about God that are associated with strength and power and stability.
From Psalm 62:
1 For God alone my soul waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
2 He only is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.
5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
for my hope is from him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
7 On God rests my salvation and my glory;
my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us. Selah
From Psalm 63:
1 O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
2 So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
beholding your power and glory.
3 Because your steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.
From Isaiah 12:
2 “Behold, God is my salvation;
I will trust, and will not be afraid;
for the Lord God  is my strength and my song,
and he has become my salvation.”
From James 5:
10 As an example of suffering and patience, brothers, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. 11 Behold, we consider those blessed who remained steadfast. You have heard of the steadfastness of Job, and you have seen the purpose of the Lord, how the Lord is compassionate and merciful.
This is my second time through the One Year Tract Bible Reading Plan. God has frequently used these readings to provide comfort for my soul or a word for my family. Even though it is the middle of the year, if you have never read through the Bible in the year, why not start now?
