His Encouragement: week #34

Welcome to His Encouragement. I have joined with some blogging friends to bring you a new Bible verse every Thursday, and a little discussion of hope and encouragement. We welcome you to join the conversation by adding your daily verse of encouragement as well.

I pray that these Thursday posts become an encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless!

 

Today’s Thursday Encouragement:

I have set the Lord always before me;
Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.
Psalms 16:8

Another version of this same text from the NIV says:
“I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With Him at my right hand, I shall not be shaken”

I’ll admit it, I was shaken early this week. I was looking at the new school year, and the super busy, super crazy schedule, and I was overwhelmed, thinking how in the world will I get all this done?!

Then that small voice whispered to my heart, and I realized that I had taken my eyes off of what really matters. I wasn’t giving it to God, I was trying to do it all myself.

May you remember that in His presence is fullness of joy! Give your burdens to God, keep your eyes on Him.

 

Now it is your turn!

What Bible verse is blessing you today?
