    Psalms 34 is one of my favorite, I will bless the Lord at ALL times. My bones will not been broken. I did not apply that part of the verse until 12/19/15 when I was rear ended on the freeway by someone going 65 miles an hour. Traffic was stopped and my car flew up in the air and spun around going in the opposite direction. I could have walked away but they wouldn't let me. To God be the Glory
