Just Something I Need To Remind Myself

Adventure before dementia
Yes - there is always something at the back of my mind - so silly I can't even begin to write about it ... Maybe one year!!

So just wanted to remind myself of a verse I read this morning -

"The Lord is good. When trouble comes he is a strong refuge. He knows everyone who trusts in Him"
Nahum 1 v 7

Like I said last week - God's timing is perfect!  

I just need to keep telling myself that - Keep reminding me of it, please!!

Whatever has upset you I hope it gets sorted out soon ((hugs))


As you know I'm not of your faith but I always liked

" God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in times of trouble"

Thanks Deb - and Thanks again ... That means a lot!

Don't know if you know but that Psalm (which is one of my favourites - so thanks for the reminder) has been turned into a song in modern hymn books to the tune Dambusters ... one of my favourite Film themes.

And now I'm trying to imagine a church full of people singing The Dam Buster's March :)

I once almost got into trouble for giggling in church , it was a very modern servive in York Minster, the type where they sing choruses , One of which had the line " He is high and exalted and his train fills the temple" which gave me the mental image of an Inter City 125 charging round The Minster :)

Yes - I know that song and I have always had the same thought!! Hard to be "Holy" when you are being run over by British Rail!!

I fail at holiness at the best of times , without the need for added rolling stock :)

*hugs* That is such a good verse, and something that I tend to forget on a regular basis, too.

Thanks - we all need these reminders, don't we.

Sorry to hear that you're going through a rough patch. I hope it resolves itself soon. (((hugs)))

It must be very comforting to have a faith to fall back on during times of trouble.

Thanks - yes my Faith really does help me ... when I remember to let it ... LOL!!

Hugs back
