“LORD Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.” Psalm 84:12
The day started out early and held so many sweet moments. The youngest one curled up in my lap when I was reading and fell back to sleep. I do not remember the last time I was given this gift. Later on we turned the music up and got busy cleaning our screened in porch to host an upcoming prom. There were a few unhappy minutes, but overall it was fun working together as a family.
And then out of nowhere fear came at my heart like an arrow. So many unknowns and I am tired. Joy seemed to fly away and questions filled my mind. Writing helps me process so I sat down to type. What to write, Lord, I prayed. Nothing seemed right until I read this verse, “LORD Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.” (Psalm 84:12). The question I must answer again is whether or not I am going to trust Him or what I can see?
Before I could even form an answer in my mind, that same little girl walks up holding a small box in her hand. She asked me what it was and I had to smile. For it was my grandfather’s victory medal from World War II. I told her about it and read the inscription, “Freedom from Fear and Want”. There is no need to fear and I will be blessed by trusting in the Lord. Peace settles over me and I know the blessing has arrived. He is true to His word and I am so thankful. I am once again free from fear.
