As we draw nearer and nearer to the trial of the Innocent Man,
we all have mixed emotions.

For years I've sung the song
It was an encouraging song,
I get it.
When facing an insurmountable trial, you must face it
moment by moment,
step by step.
Looking at a whole day,
a whole week,
a whole month,
or a year is overwhelming.
Since Feb. 14th, we've been living
moment by moment.
All of us are taking our thoughts and making them captive to Christ
so we don't despair and fear.
We remind ourselves over and over
the Lord is in control.
I've started a spiritual countdown to give me courage
as we trudge the final steps of this time of testing.
Please join me.
Where do we go when we're in soul distress?
1 Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
You have relieved me in my distress;
Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.
2 How long, O you sons of men,
Will you turn my glory to shame?
How long will you love worthlessness
And seek falsehood? Selah
3 But know that the LORD has set apart for Himself him who is godly;
The LORD will hear when I call to Him.
4 Be angry, and do not sin.
Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still. Selah
5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,
And put your trust in the LORD.
6 There are many who say,
“Who will show us any good?”
LORD, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us.
7 You have put gladness in my heart,
More than in the season that their grain and wine increased.
8 I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;
For You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
I also use YoutTube videos to encourage myself in the Lord.
How do you encourage yourself when you're feeling the heat of the
Is there someone you call?
A favorite verse you read?
Songs you love?
I'd love to hear how you bring your heart to the Lord
when circumstances could easily cause you to stray.
