    LaTonya what a powerful scripture Psalms 91
    When my mom was in the hospital and nursing home I wrote Psalms 91 on a big white poster board in bold letters so my mom could read it. I truly believe that it protected her also when i was away. Also, my mom before she got sick told me that she couldn't go to sleep until she read psalms 91 so i believe God was building up her faith and preparing her.

    I chose to become a CNA at the age of 28 because I wanted to learn how to care for my loved ones in their sickness and old age. One of my patients had psalms 91 posted on the wall in her room. Her daughter noted that it was to protect her mother when she was away from the nursing home. I am 40 now working in case management for people with I/DD. I meditate on Psalm 91 daily for assurance.

    Verse 5 and 6 reassures us (children/congregration) of God's security during the night when we are not aware of what is going on or the day time when we are moving around. God is always there to protect us from all dangers and situations. when i read it it relaxes m6 mind and i enjoy the experience.

    I love this Psalmist! It was used at my father's funeral. I have been reading it off and on for over 20 years.
    I find comfort in reading it know that if I stay/ dwell with Jesus, he will protect me from all hurt, harm and danger! He has promised to be our refuge and strength. Not only that, but as I near my 65th bday, I love he promises us that he will satisfy us with Long life!
    Thank you Jesus
