Psalm 18: 1-2
      "I Love You, Lord; You are my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior;
my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the strength of my salvation, and stronghold."

This is such a awesome and humbling prayer. God reminds me how limited I am in facing all the stuff life throws at me. But He is not limited. He is limitless! There is absolutely nothing in my life or your life that God can't handle. Psalm 18 is written by David at a time when he was being attacked by enemies. David was confident in God's protection. We can be confident in God's protection. Even as I write this satan, the enemy is attacking in a very vulnerable area in my life. I cling to God! He is my lifeline! Yet I struggle with what I believe and the emotions that intercept that belief. It feels like tug of war in my heart.  These two verses are a continuous  prayer and a constant reminder of just how great is my God. Daily these verses remind me that God is truth and is and will forever be in control. I acknowledge God as my strength, He is mighty, powerful and able. God is my rock. He can not and will not be moved. He is steadfast! He is my fortress! He is my place of safety. I love that! He holds me in the palm of His mighty hand. He is my shield. He stands between me and the enemy. I shudder to think what it looks like from God's perspective as He sees both sides of the shield. Even during the times I think are real tough I wonder what God is holding back from attacking me, what I can't see or even comprehend. He is my Stronghold! He is my Salvation! He is my Savior! No, life is not easy, God never says it will be but take heart He is the one through whom we can rely on, trust, survive and grow deeper and closer to in our spiritual relationship with Him. My God has given me an awesome husband who God works through to encourage, guide and pray for me. I am blessed!
 He was, He is and He is coming! He Is!

My latest book that I read is "Born Of Persuasion"
by Jessica Dotta. This is the first book that I have read
by her.  I am a forever fan after reading book one in
her series "The Price of Privelege".
First let me say "WOW"! From the first word you read you will
be drawn into Julia's life. Beautiful, trusting, innocent orphan who is willing to trust everyone but soon learns the hard way that not everyone is trustworthy. Jessica engages her readers into a magnificently written book and keeps you reading long past bedtime. It is packed full of secrets and the suspense will have you holding your breath. The characters are witty and fascinating. Hold on as you twist and turn throughout the book. Jessica definitely has her own style in her writing and it is refreshing.
Excellent Book!

Here is a sneak peek of Book One:

LATER, when I allowed myself to confront the memories, to dwell on the particulars, I realized my arrival at Am Meer marked the beginning.
Not the mysterious letters that drained the life from Mama.
Not her suicide.
And not the two men arriving at dusk, stomping mud from their boots in the foyer, bearing ill tidings.
Nay—not even the disconcerting news that I had a guardian, one who intended to keep me sequestered. For those happenings were not my story. I was sinless there.
They were the end result of events set in motion long before I arrived at the cottage. I could no more have stopped their unfolding than I could have prevented my own birth.

See, makes you want to read the book!
