    I have found myself thinking on this psalm in times when I am tempted to fear or be anxious. Also when I am unsure what to do. I trust and wait for wisdom and light.

    I am coming up on a year of being out of work. Time has flown by so quickly and yet the Lord is silent as to what I will do, and where I will go. It is a struggle, for I think I should be doing something at this time and all that I have been given is to wait and trust. I never thought it be so hard. Today's verse does speak to me. I must keep focus on the LORD, who else could a go to?
