Scripture Saturday...

Saturday, June 6, 2009

Michael called last night around 8:30, not sounding too happy.  I asked if he was okay, 
and he said, "No, it's too dark."  
I so badly wanted to get in my car and drive over to the camping grounds where they were, but of course I didn't.  
I told him get out his lantern and hold it and go stand near the fire and that he'll adjust.  

Later when thinking of a verse to use for today, all that kept coming to me was the following...as if I was praying and quoting the scriptures for my boy...

Psalms 91

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High 
       will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 

  I will say  of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, 
       my God, in whom I trust."

  Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare 
       and from the deadly pestilence.

  He will cover you with his feathers, 
       and under his wings you will find refuge; 
       his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

 You will not fear the terror of night, 
       nor the arrow that flies by day,

  nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, 
       nor the plague that destroys at midday.

  A thousand may fall at your side, 
       ten thousand at your right hand, 
       but it will not come near you.

  You will only observe with your eyes 
       and see the punishment of the wicked.

  If you make the Most High your dwelling— 
       even the LORD, who is my refuge then no harm will befall you, 

       No disaster will come near your tent.

  For he will command his angels concerning you 
       to guard you in all your ways.

Enjoy your Saturday!

  2. We all have our own darkness, though hopefully not for long. Perhaps, finding the light is how we grow. Or maybe my little burst of profound thinking is simply a lack of sleep. :)

  3. I love this Psalm! Like many I have memorized it and quoted it at various times of trial in my life. I'll be praying for you boy-that he has a fun time and peace.

  4. One of my favorites - how fitting for Michael during his camping trip and for all of us when we are afraid.

  5. Awww that is so sweet. That is the reason that is my favorite flower. The big old house we lived in when I was growing up had them lining the front of the house. these bring back so many memories.
    You maybe trying to hard. I planted this one in the edge of the woods. They take care of them selves really. I have a small one out front and it never does any thing.
    I also wonder if it is your climate.
    Happy Weekend

  7. WHAT A GOOD MOM YOU ARE TO LET YOUR CHILD GROW. IT'S HARD ISN'T IT.
    JESUS IS HIS COMFORTER, AND HE WILL FIND HIM IN THAT WAY FOR HIMSELF BECAUSE YOU ARE LETTING IT HAPPEN.

    SO GREAT TO KNOW THAT GOD WILL BE FAITHFUL.

  9. How perfect for your son! And I am sure it is a comfort to you too--It's so hard to let them learn their own way--much easier to scoop them up and take care of things. I hope you both found comfort in this Psalm. Thanks for sharing this!

  10. Hi Sunshine,
    I was thinking I could give those
    verses to my 31 yr. old son for his
    trek on the appalachian trail as he will definitely be in a desolate
    dark place in a tent where there are bears and who knows what else.
    I have always loved that psalm myself. Thanks for reminding me!!
    Hope you are having a nice weekend,
    I will pray your son has a good time at camp.
    You are a good Mom.
    Blessings, Nellie

  12. Hopefully you were able to quote this Scripture to Michael...it's tough being young and fearful or old and fearful or just plain fearful!

    God knows how to supply all our needs.

    blessings and prayers,
