"For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness. Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron; Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High: Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down , and there was none to help. Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder. Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!" -- Psalm 107:9-15.
I mentioned in my last post that I have been having a hard time, being really anxious about my lost loved one, and that God had been faithful in giving me raindrops to help me. The above psalm is one of the raindrops, a VERY POWERFUL raindrop, especially the verses I quoted. Most of that psalm spoke to me, and you may want to read the whole thing to see which part speaks to you the most.
This verse basically told me to hang on and give praise. Even if my loved one is in the very shadow of death, God is still able!!! He is ABLE!!! I will "praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!"
