Weekly Truth

from the Psalm 119 reading plan

Psalm 119:114

BY She Reads Truth

Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the good news of Jesus with us wherever we go.

As we read Psalm 119, we will memorize the key verse for this reading plan.

You are my shelter and my shield;
I put my hope in your word.
—Psalm 119:114

To aid in your memorization, copy Psalm 119:114 a few times below.

    Jesus, the Word made flesh, is our hope in all of life’s situations.

    Whether we need shelter from a storm in our life or whether we need a shield when doing battle, we can put our hope in Him.

  2. Sherri says:

    Praying you lean in to the Father, ask Him to refresh you spiritually & physically, He will. His word says He will give rest to all who are weary & burdened.

    May God give you peace that surpasses all understanding as you await your results. I will be praying for you & your coworker.

    Blessings today & always SRT sisters in Christ

    I rarely comment here. I do read a few comments and pray each day but this morning I am just really struggling. I have been in full time vocational ministry roles since 2011. In January of this year I became the lead pastor of our church. It has been a roller coaster ride. The past month has just been emotionally, mentally, and spiritually exhausting. This morning as I sit with my coffee and spend time in the word I am just really feeling the tired and weariness. I just want to crawl back into bed. But it’s Sunday. When you’re the pastor that’s not an option lol I am sure that God has me and has called me but I am just so tired-as I am sure many in ministry, let’s face it, I think we all know this-are. This verse for the week is perfect for my heart and mind this week!

      Stacey, I’ve felt that way too. I know we all have. I am not a pastor, I am a college coach, but it’s similar, some days the leader is too tired to lead.
      I’ve found sharing my struggle with my team is useful, and it allows them to support me, I’m sure it would be the same with your congregation. They love you and what an awesome gift to see you be vulnerable with them about your struggles and allow them to pray for you and love you and to know they aren’t alone.

      I am not sure you didn’t come here for advice necessarily, you being a tired leader touched my heart. I’ll be praying for you to feel renewed.

        Thank you, Ashley! I appreciate your kindness and encouragement!

      Praying for you, Stacey!! I was also in ministry for years and I so deeply resonate with your weariness. There are no days off. There is no break from your work because it’s so encompassing. Thank you for saying “yes” to Jesus and serving him in this way. May you feel his deep love for you, may you be filled up from his well, may you receive rest for your soul, body and mind. “You are doing well, my good and faithful servant.”

    . Praying for Lehua and all the cares and needs for the SRT family

  5. Blessed Beth says:

    Lehua, I Too am an asthmatic, so please allow each breath to be from God slow and deep. As the last thing you need is stress, lean on Him, allow His joy into your lungs, satan wants you to stress, God wants you to rest in Him. He has great plans for you and all our SRT sisters.

  6. Churchmouse says:

    I take all of our concerns before the Lord today for He is our shelter and shield. Trust and hope in His Word gives me the comfort and encouragement I need. I can be still, resting in His grace and truth, because I know He is God. And He loves me.

  7. Lisa Metz says:

    Praying for you all.

  8. Lehua says:

    Ladies, I humbly ask for your prayers. I’ve been out from work for physical complications with my asthma, and my doctor (as a precaution) recommended that I get tested. That same day, my coworker told me she has a family member who tested positive and has been exposed to her, and I have worked with this coworker closely. She was also tested recently (both of us awaiting results) and she is in quarantine for two weeks.

    I have faith that everything will work out but I am trying not to worry as I am also in self-isolation until I get the results and feel better. Thank you for your prayers and for your many wonderful reflections on the reading! I have been a few days behind with all that is going on, but I am using this newfound time to spend more quality time in His Word and to catch up on these devotionals. Blessings sisters.
