Psalm16: 8-9 The Lord is with Me

cleome bloom

I know the Lord is always with me.
    I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice.[b]
    My body rests in safety.

Psalm 16: 8-9

Yes, the Lord with us always. He is beside us so we need not fear. All we need to do is call to Him for help. We need to let go and let God be in control.

I want to share with you the lyrics and the video of the song “Let Go” by, DeWayne Woods, he says it beautifully…

I couldn’t seem to fall asleep
There was so much on my mind
Searching for that peace
But the peace I could not find
So then I knelt down to pray
Praying help me please
Then He said you don’t have to cry
‘Cause I’ll supply all your needs
As soon as I stop worrying (soon as I stopped worrying)
Worrying how the story ends (When I let go)
I let go (And I let) and I let God (let Him have)
(Let Him Have) Let God have His way
(That’s when things) That’s when things start happening
I’ll stop looking at back then
I let go and I’ll let God have His way…

What do you need to release, to let go and let God have?

Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for always being with us. Just as the long stamens of the cleome bloom reach outward. Let us, in turn, reach out in prayer to You. As the cleome blossoms circle round the inner center encircle us with Your love. Jesus, we will not be shaken, for you are beside us. Our hearts rejoice in You! Amen

Light: 2 Corinthians 4:6-7

obedient plant


God said, “Let light shine out of darkness.” He made his light shine in our hearts. His light gives us the light to know God’s glory. His glory is shown in the face of Christ.

2 Corinthians 4:6-7  (NIRV)

 God said, “Let there be light.” And there was light.

Genesis 1:3

Yes, the name of this plant is obedient plant. It is now in bloom in my front yard. In the photo, sunlight illuminates the flower petals, so they almost glow. God, in turn, made his light to shine to glow in our hearts. This light of love and the sharing of love spreads God’s glory. Let there be light and let it shine!

Where is your heart light shining to push back the darkness?

Prayer: Dear Lord, Let our hearts be inner lit with light and know God’s glory. Help us to be obedient like the name of this plant and follow your path. Lead us toward the glory of Christ’s face. As a strong stem supports the plant and blossoms, help us to be strong and steady during life storms. In Jesus holy name. Amen
