    It was refreshing and just what I needed to read On This Day...
    I have been enduring a on going issue at my job from my supervisor, that has caused me lost sleep, lost hours, lost productivity, and just draining.
    However after reading Psalm 37, I see a light, I have hope, I have a expectation.
    That was offered by the most High, and since he is not man he word I can count on.
    Psalm 55 also helped.
