The Lord is My Strength

Psalms 28:7 (KJV)
7 “The Lord is my strength, and my shield, my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly reioyceth, and with my song will I praise him.”
Testimony: It was our Saturday afternoon event in the park during a ten-year class reunion. I watched a friend of mine as he ran across the yard playing catch-football with his son, unaware of the testimony that he was about to share with me that day.
He said that he had been in a terrible accident that had left him crippled. He could not walk without crutches, let alone run and play catch with his son.
He was at a gas station one night filling up when an accident happened just out on the street. He ran to the car pulling everyone out to safety not realizing that he was not using any crutches. Then he collapsed to the ground as the car burst into flames.
He went up into the mountains and spent six months alone with the Lord looking for answers. The closer that he got to the Lord, the better he could walk. He got to where he didn’t need the assistance of crutches any more. He said, "I noticed that when I would drift away from the Lord I start having trouble walking. I would again draw closer to Him and I could walk and run once again."
Father, I have noticed that when I get caught up in trying to make a better living for myself and walk away from You, I start having trouble as well. But when I come back into that close relationship once again, I can move around with little or no difficulty. Help me to stay close enough to You so that I can discern Your voice quickly and stay out of trouble. In Jesus's name I pray, Amen.
Blessing on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
