He is not afraid of bad news. His heart remains secure, full of confidence in the LORD. Ps 112:7 (GW)

My pastor came up with a new proverb:

“He who lives in the Land Of Performance finds himself in the swamp of insecurity.”

It is so tempting and easy to look for acceptability in doing. The problem is, we can’t “do it right” all of the time; we all miss the mark. Even if we do things right for one person, there is bound to be someone who doesn’t like what we did or who can do it better.

The secret: Trust in the Lord. He already knows each of us fully and loves us completely.

so here’s a new verse for a psalm:
“Because papa God loves and accepts me, my heart is secure.”
Okay, not quite original, but I bet King David won’t mind!

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
