Perspective

Find rest, O my soul, in God alone;
my hope comes from him.

He alone is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.

My salvation and my honor depend on God;
he is my mighty rock, my refuge.

Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge.

Lowborn men are but a breath,
the highborn are but a lie;
if weighed on a balance, they are nothing;
together they are only a breath.

Do not trust in extortion
or take pride in stolen goods;
though your riches increase,
do not set your heart on them.

One thing God has spoken,
two things have I heard:

that you, O God, are strong,
and that you, O Lord, are loving.
Surely you will reward each person
according to what he has done.

– Psalm 62:5-12

  1. Amen. I’m finding much comfort in the Psalms right now.
    I really appreciated your comments on my post yesterday. Being persecuted for your Christian faith on political issues, as well as for your patriotism, can get a little wearing. But it helps ya grow a thicker skin. So thank you. : )
    If I ever run for president, you can be my running mate. ; )

    Our true hope comes from Him. Great perspective.
