    Psalms 37 has seen me through the good and the bad. Currently I'm going through difficult times. Nothing seems to be going right with my life. People are taking advantage of my goodness. Psalms 37 has uplifted my spirit down through the years. I read and meditate on it daily. I began and end my day with it. I used to read only a few verses now I read every verse. It gives me such peace.

    I am going through a terrible phase in my life, work,marriage and I felt totally surrounded by enemies. The morning before my important meeting I came across this psalms, read it over and over and I went to my meeting like a LION. The meeting turned how great with many individuals apologising to me. I was amazed at how events had turned so much with everyone commending me for my work.

    The lord lead me to psalms 37 before in my walk with him for encouragment and strength that he will fight my battles. A few weeks ago he lead me to psalms 37 again. This time I knew that he was some how protecting me in advance from something to come. I began mediating on it day and night. As I did what the holy spirit was leading me to do. He showed my what others were plotting against me.
