So, this house stuff is overwhelming....so many questions...what direction to go in now....frustrating, unsettling, faith-shaking, etc. But when you ask for direction...He'll give it to you. I hope if you are going through something similar...if you are feeling uncertain - if you are feeling bullied...not sure what direction to take next...that this will speak to you, too.

Psalm 25

O LORD, I give my life to you.
I trust in you, my God!
Do not let me be disgraced,
or let my enemies rejoice in my defeat.
No one who trusts in you will ever be disgraced,
but disgrace comes to those who try to deceive others.

Show me the right path, O LORD;
point out the road for me to follow.
Lead me by your truth and teach me,
for you are the God who saves me.
All day long I put my hope in you.
Remember, O LORD, your compassion and unfailing love,
which you have shown from long ages past.
Do not remember the rebellious sins of my youth.
Remember me in the light of your unfailing love,
for you are merciful, O LORD.

The LORD is good and does what is right;
he shows the proper path to those who go astray.
He leads the humble in doing right,
teaching them in his way.
The LORD leads with unfailing love and faithfulness
all who keep his covenant and obey his demands.

For the honor of your name, O LORD,
forgive my many, many sins.
Who are those who fear the LORD?
He will show them the path they should choose.
They will live in prosperity,
and their children will inherit the land.
The LORD is a friend to those who fear him.
He teaches them his covenant.
My eyes are always on the LORD,
for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies.

Turn to me and have mercy,
for I am alone and in deep distress.
My problems go from bad to worse.
Oh, save me from them all!
Feel my pain and see my trouble.
Forgive all my sins.
See how many enemies I have
and how viciously they hate me!
Protect me! Rescue my life from them!
Do not let me be disgraced, for in you I take refuge.
May integrity and honesty protect me,
for I put my hope in you.

O God, ransom Israel
from all its troubles.

from the Husband of the Mom of 'Em:

Psalm 37:17-19
The power of the wicked will be broken,
but the LORD supports those who do right.

The LORD watches over the lives of the innocent,
and their reward will last forever.

They will not be ashamed when trouble comes,
They will be full in times of hunger.


John 16:23-24
I tell you the truth, my Father will give you anything you ask for in my name. Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy will be the fullest possible joy.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust the LORD with all your heart,
and don't depend on your own understanding.

Remember the LORD in all you do,
and he will give you success.


Luke 6:27-28
Do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who are cruel to you.

Hebrews 10:35-36
Do not lose the courage you had in the past, which has a great reward. You must hold on, so you can do what God wants and receive what he has promised.

Isaiah 55:8,9,12
The LORD says," My thoughts are not like your thoughts.
Your ways are not like my ways.

Just as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways.
and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.

So you will go out with joy
and be led out in peace.


amen...
