Chapter-a-Day Psalm 41

Super_glue "You know me inside and out, you hold me together…" Psalm 41:12a (TM)

For those looking at it from the outside, travelling for business seems fun and exciting. Perhaps it is for others, but weeks on the road are long and hard for me. The hours are long. The stress of travel wears on you as a million circumstances beyond your control can completely ruin your schedule and leave you stranded. I don’t sleep well in hotels, tend not to eat well in restaurants, and I miss my family.

When I get weary and heavy laden, that’s when I begin to unravel emotionally. I can feel it come on me like a slow rising tide. But, I’ve learned to recognize it, and I’ve learned to consciously choose to take it to God and let Him be my super glue. God helps me "hold it together." A verse I memorized kept coming to me this week as God reminded me of His presence in my stress…

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 (NASB)

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Psalm 41”

  1. 10 God, give grace, get me up on my feet.
    I’ll show them a thing or two.
    The theme of this chapter is summarized above for me. When everyone and everything is going against us, we can lean on God. He is the only one who can lift us up and keep us strong. We need to remember that and remind each other.
