"When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?" Psalm 56: 3-4

This piece is entitled GOD IS LOVE because that is the music I chose from the collection of antique music from Great Granddaddy Haskell.

It often seems in days filled with so much outside stress that much fear builds within each of us. It starts small and begins gnawing away at our confidence and our hope. Eventually it takes over in our every day life and actions. Psalm 56 was written when David was sized by the Philistines. His writings through the Psalms to me are so inspiring because he bears his heart to God. He literally cries out in his pain and his passion as well as in his celebration of his life, his love for God and his praise to the Father. There is always a Psalm that David has written to tie in to my day where ever I am in my journey.

Trusting in God to care for us when we are buried in the midst of fear will bring the light we seek to go forward in life. God wants us to entrust Him with our problems, but most of us hold on tight to them and battled through, draining ourselves of energy and life. This verse in the Psalms is David's simple thought that mortal man cannot touch his soul. Mortal man can inflict pain, suffering and death, but no other person can rob your soul of the love of God.

When all is dark around you, one truth will continue to shine, His truth. God is there for you.

Joy and Abundance,


"Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul." Matthew 10:28

Hey Laurie, Great words today. I so enjoy reading your messages every day. They help me, and others, understand how His word applies in our daily lives. -- This painting, God is Love, reminds me of my days at the piano. That girl could be me. Have a wonderful day. Blessings, Susan
