God Holds The Right Hand Of The Needy

“O God, whom I praise, do not remain silent.” (Psalm 109:1)

For the last three years life as I have known it has been turned upside down. My husband took a job transfer to Iowa and moved on ahead while I stayed behind in Alabama with the kids to finish out the school year. 

Every natural disaster you can think of occurred while he was gone. First, we were snowed and iced in. And then once the weather turned warm we were hit with the deadliest string of tornadoes to hit the area in history.

We survived the tornadoes, finished the school year and joined my husband in Iowa. After a little over a year there we made another move, this time to Texas.

Can I just say? I think some people are born to thrive in climates of constant change; but I for one am not one of those people. I like routine and the same old thing. If I need a change I’ll go on a vacation thank you very much.

To say I was needy would be an understatement…I was flat out desperate. My body went into survival mode and has refused to come out even though life is pretty normal now.

This has been my life for the last three years and I have never been more needy or desperate for God to stand by my side and feel like he is holding my hand and walking me through each day.

I'm honored to be joining Katie Reid for her Psalm Series, will you join me over there for the rest of my story of  how God has held my hand?


Your Turn...
