The Secret Place Revisited

San Juan Day 1 - 21It has been 9 years since writing “The Secret Place”.  My life has changed in so many ways and I am so grateful to my family and friends who helped me get through the loss of my husband.  God has shown me His love and His mercy.  In January of 2007 when “The Secret Place” was written, I could only get through Psalm 91:1-2, but as the years went by I was able to get through the entire Psalm.  I have learned that when you call on God, He will answer.

My heart is so full because God has been with me through it all.  I have learned to dream again.  I have learn to breathe again.  I have learn to trust again.

God has given me new friends who love me for who I am and that is saying a lot.

Psalm 91:14-15 (NASB)

Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.
He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.

If there has ever been a time in your life when you felt abandoned, alone or afraid then I encourage you to read Psalm 91.

Through the years God has taught me He will be with me.  I trust Him with my life.  As I write this, tears are flowing because I love my Savior so much.  These are tears of joy and not sadness.

Psalm 91:14-15 (NASB)

Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.
He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.

Finally, my Lord and Savior has been with me through it all.  I can’t breathe without Him.  I just know that if you have not accepted Jesus into your life what are you waiting for?  When friends leave you He is there.  When you do not conform to the way of the world, He is there.  When family do not understand you, He is there.

My son Mike (MJ) has been with me through it all.  I am so grateful to have a son who loves unconditionally.  He has been hurt and suffered betrayal in his life but I have seen him rise up and become stronger because God said I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him.  I love you my son.

Thank you Lord for everything!  You are my life.  You are everything to me!

John 3:16 (NASB)

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
