Monthly Vlog, Overcoming and Psalm 46

It has been more than a month since I last Vloged .  Today I felt led to share a word which has been on my heart lately about the trials and potential celebrations for victory when we are battling hurt, depression and standing up for Truth...

Psalm 46 

1 God is our refuge and strength, 
a very present help in trouble.  
2 Therefore we will not fear,
 though the earth should change, 
though the mountains shake 
in the heart of the sea; 
  3 though its waters roar and foam, 
though the mountains tremble with its tumult. 

4 There is a river whose streams 
make glad the city of God, 
the holy habitation of the Most High.  
5 God is in the midst of the city; 
it shall not be moved;
 God will help it when the morning dawns.  
6 The nations are in an uproar, 
the kingdoms totter; 
he utters his voice, the earth melts. 
  7 The Lord of hosts is with us
the God of Jacob is our refuge

  8 Come, behold the works of the Lord; 
see what desolations he has brought on the earth.  
9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; 
he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear;
 he burns the shields with fire.  
10 "Be still, and know that I am God!
 I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth." 
  11 The Lord of hosts is with us; 
the God of Jacob is our refuge.  

 (copied from the NRSV, emphasis added)

I could write and speak for hours on Psalm 46... such power in this passage.  I pray you will find refuge in this Psalm and in the Lord of hosts when the world is too heavy on your shoulders.
