I’ve been stressed, and thus going through a rough patch, but praise God and His awesome Providence, I was led to start re-reading through my Bible in a year program and lo and behold it took me to the Book of Ecclesiastes……Solomon TRULY was the wisest man who ever lived! I wish I could memorize the entire book.
Another passage which seems to have Providentially been on my day’s reading just when I needed it most was Ps. 73:21-26. I memorized it in minutes! Mind you, I have trouble memorizing even ONE verse in days, much less 7 verses in mere minutes! I’d like to share it here (below in NASB):
21 When my heart was embittered
And I was pierced within,
22 Then I was senseless and ignorant;
I was like a beast before You.
23 Nevertheless I am continually with You;
You have taken hold of my right hand.
24 With Your counsel You will guide me,
And afterward receive me to glory.
25 Whom have I in heaven but You?
And besides You, I desire nothing on earth.
26 My flesh and my heart may fail,
But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
