"Make Me A Bird" "Say I'm A Bird"

Hope everyone had a good week. So ready for a nice weekend!
This week was great mostly. Just that one day I got really
upset. Wasn't really sure why. I just started crying and
was kind of sad too. I know other people have had
days like this. I just wanted to get away from everything
and everyone... reminds me of two movie quotes... One is
from Forrest Gump where Jenny says, "Make me a bird, so
I can fly far, far far away from here." The other is from the
Notebook (the book & movie - love all of Nicholas Sparks
books!) Where Allie says, " Say I'm A Bird!"

The next day I read the daily devotional by Joseph Prince.
It really helped me. Hope ya like it....

The Lord Is Your Refuge
Psalm 91:1–2 
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” 

Every day, we are bombarded with news of conflicts, natural disasters, diseases and new strains of drug-resistant viruses. We also hear of people losing their loved ones in freak accidents. And we ask ourselves, “Is there a place where I can take refuge from a world gone mad?”

Yes, there is! God foresaw all these things and He has promised in His Word protection from every evil known to man. There is no trap set by the devil that our Father cannot deliver us from, if we trust in Him and take Him as our refuge. That is His promise in Psalm 91.

Whether it is an earthquake at midnight, a crazy sniper, an unknown virus or a terrorist attack, God says, “You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.” (Psalm 91:5–6)

Because you have made Him your dwelling place, angels are watching over you right now. (Psalm 91:9–11) They give heed to the voice of God’s Word, so you should give voice to God’s Word. This means that you should agree with and speak what God’s Word says about His preserving and protecting you. Then, angels are sent to minister for you. (Hebrews 1:14)

My friend, don’t say, “If it can happen to them, it can also happen to me!” Say, “A thousand may fall at my side and 10,000 at my right hand, but it will not come near me!” (Psalm 91:7) The world says that you cannot but expect danger all around. God says, “You are in this world but not of this world. You have My protection because you are of Me and in Me.” (John 17:14–23)

You have access by faith into the secret place of the Most High where no evil can touch you. There is no need to fear living in the end times because the Lord is your refuge and fortress. His Word says so. And those who trust His Word completely find His Word completely true!

Thank you to all my family & friends for
the nice Valentine's Day wishes. Love you all.

Everyone have an awesome weekend!
