Today's Text: Psalm 32:7

you protect me from trouble.
You surround me with joyful shouts of deliverance.

    At this moment I’m sitting in a rehabilitation facility with my dad. He’s had stage 4 lung cancer for a year and a half and 4 weeks ago he was taken to ICU due to not being able to breathe. He’s lost 23 lbs of pure muscle and his muscles have atrophied. He’s learning how to walk again. We’ve come from telling him he won’t be able to breathe without a ventilator again to almost going home, but hardest part is him overcoming pneumonia right now and intolerable pain he has in his back that keeps him from building strength to walk. The last 5 weeks have been unbearable and it’s hard to see the joyous shouts through all the pain.

  • Tanyah Hope

    I’m praying for this country that God leads us in the right direction. There are so many lost souls and craziness happening that needs God’s touch. We are also as a nation so desensitized to it all that we need a wake up.

  • Stephanie Lahm

    Praying for you Sara! Keep digging into the word. Praying God sends you the right people to answer questions and walk life with.

  • Praying for your son and God’s protection.

  • Dawn Goddard

    This scripture spoke to me this morning. My son is at basic training and my faith has been challenged in so many ways but every morning the Lord has led me to a verse that reminds me that he’s protecting him and helping him. This verse brought this mama’s heart some peace today and I’m so grateful and thankful. I’m rejoicing that my son knows the Lord as his personal saviour! Please pray for him and for our family as he completes this journey. Thank you!!

    • Marta

      I will be praying for him & claiming verses 3, 4 & 7 of Psalm 34 for your famiy. Verse 3 for his Christian witness in the military, verse 4 for you & him & 7 for God’s protection. As always, we are so thankful for those who keep us save & are willing to serve.

    • Heidi V

      Praying for you too. My son is also at Basic. Two weeks till graduation. So thankful to have the Lord and his Word with me as this journey will take him through many dangerous seasons.

  • So need His protection and peace. This weekend I just want to rest and know in my heart He has everything worked out.

  • Love this truth–surrounded by songs of deliverance. Today, help me to know You more, not of You. To keep myself at Your feet and my eyes on You.

    • Sara

      I am a Christian but can’t find my peace in Him. I sometimes want to spend the entire day reading his wit, watching Christian media. I’m constantly distracted by my husband who turns on the tv. Says he’s a Christian but I feel like when I try to share intense revealations when I’m high on Lord. I wish I had someone to share with AND someone to ask biblical questions to. As I read I have questions. My church is high but I’m not finding individuals who provide this. Please pray. I’m 64 and life is getting very short and I have to begin getting it and feeling His peace and be freed from depression and other things in my life. I want to make progress I want to feel change. Thanks for listening.

      • Sara

        I meant to say “his Word” and my church is “huge”.

      • Hilary

        Prayers for you. That you will receive His peace that surpasses all understanding and that you begrim
        To feel at home at church. Also, praying for your husband.

      • DebbieinAZ

        I pray God brings you a godly mentor. It’s never too late to gain a friendship that feels like mother and daughter. Someone to talk to, who may be a bit further along in their Christian walk. I pray God gives you someone like this. May He give you the peace you long for and may your hubby begin to desire the Lord as much as you, so that you can talk freely with him. Try and find a small group bible study. These are great places to meet others who are seeking and not quite as intimidating as trying to meet people in a large church.

      • Nicole Childress

        Sara, it’s going to be okay. Meditation has helped me in this greatly. I’ve found peace and answers when I am still that I didn’t find though a lot of other paths. Keep reading, keep praying. You will be in my thoughts.

  • One of the reasons I love doing the SRT studies, is the community shared with others. Exactly what Churchmouse said, it is a journey that we share together, and pray together and hold each other up and doesn’t matter the distance, the details, but that we serve the One True God who hears ALL our hurts, joys, sorrows and praises all at the same time. I do pray for peace for all of us in this hurting world and strength to endure! Love to all my sisters in Christ!

  • Churchmouse

    No greater protector. No better place to be than surrounded by You. Grateful for this Grace Day. Will go back and reread the comments posted this past week – so much raw vulnerability and wisdom and perseverance by sisters in Christ Jesus. Thank you for gathering in this place. It’s a privilege to meet you here, to pray with you and for you, to share in your journey, and to lean heavy on our Lord with you all. May this weekend be a restful one.

    • Searching for peace

      Amen

      Amen

      Love grace day!!! I too will go back and reread through the study and the comments. I am so much enjoying the study. I’m exhausted though. I wanted to sleep more, but I have a car appointment. I went to bed too late after my son’s last football game! It was probably the best game they played and they won. Very intense! I’m thankful that the football season is over for them. As silly as it sounds please pray because when I get very little sleep depression sets in. Love you all here SRT and I can’t wait to meet you someday when we’re all living in our heavenly home together praising our Jesus.

      • Julia

        That’s not silly at all, I understand! Praying for you!

      • Julie

        I understand completely, good stress is still stress, and it can wear us down too. I’m praying that today you find rest in God, our hiding place!
