    I want to be kept by the power of God and to be the apple of His eye. I also want to be hid under the shadow of His wing. My life is hid with Christ in God .

    It's amazing how God speaks to us through His holy word. I am going through something right now that I didn't forsee happening, but this Psalm assures me that God already knows about it and He will deliver me from them that rise up against me. Praise His holy name.
