    Pharaoh's daughter came down to bathe at the river. Her maidens walked along by the riverside. She saw the basket among the reeds, and sent her handmaid to get it. She opened it, and saw the child, and, behold, the baby cried. She had compassion on him, and said, 'This is one of the Hebrews' childre...

In God We Trust

  • I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his children begging for bread. Psalm 37:25 WEB

    David had been through a lot when he wrote this verse. He had been anointed by Samuel as a young boy and went on to kill lions, bears, and giants. As he grew, David became an experienced shepherd, an accomplished musician, and an excellent soldier.

    He had to run and hide from Saul, his own father-in-law, who had become so jealous of David that he sought to kill him. For years, David had to hide in caves, live with Philistines, and the lowest of the low. Those who were outcast from society and in trouble began to gather around him and soon became an army of mighty men.

    In time, Saul died and David became king, reigning for forty years. When King David passed away, he left his son Solomon 3,000 talents of gold, and 7,000 talents of silver from his personal treasury to help build the new temple. One talent of gold (75 pounds) in 2016 would be worth around 1.25 million USD.

    David began life as a poor shepherd boy, the least in his family, but God took care of him all the way through and he ended well. During that time David wrote that not once did he ever see the righteous forsaken, or their children begging for bread. Though at times things looked bad, there would always be enough to eat when it became needed.

    If you serve God, He will take care of you. The things that you suffer will be for your own development. Every child needs discipline and we are no different, but God will provide for His people. So many times in my life, tomorrow looked terrifying, but when it arrived, so did an unexpected blessing that countered the bad. I have put my trust in God. What can man do to me?

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for remembering me today and I choose to put my trust in You. Please lead me into all that You have for me and teach me what I need to know. Fulfill Your will in my life, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Happy Monday! The highlighted group of the week is Ladies in Distress, a private women's fellowship group (all women are welcome, but only group members see the posts). We are here for fun, emotional support, household tips, an ear to listen and a friend to pray with you, when life gets to be overwhelming. Even the best of us may sometimes have a 'lady in distress' day, so please feel free to join us! ALSO, the Creation Photographers fun theme, "An Attitude of Gratitude", based on 1 Thessalonians 5:15-18! As always, you are free to post anything else that inspires you, too! For links to all of these areas and more, please see the Announcements at the top of our home page here: Announcements}

Hi Stacie! I just checked and it looks like everything is still a-ok here as far as your subscription. Possibly it landed in your junk folder? That can occasionally happen and they would then need to be marked as "not junk" :)
