Yo, God this morning as I reach for my Bible and weights my emotional and spiritual heart seemed to fall on the same thought about protective custody. Looking up Psalm 34:7 I read, "The angel of The Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them."
At the lifting of each weight it felt good to think about such a promise in the Bible. The more I meditated on it the more it seemed to lift the burdens that were weighing down my heart. Suddenly in the midst of lifting each arm high above my head I realized I was fearing the wrong thing.
The promise I just read was for those who fear God not for those afraid of others. The thought that God was willing to take the time to encamp around me made me realize I needed to do my part and stay still and accept that protection.
Getting all upset over my burdens or the weights on my heart from life and throwing them around didn't make sense. I needed to treat them as I did the dumbbell weights in my hands and slowly move them up to The Lord to release them into His care. His protective custody.
The place of comfort. The environment of peace. Yo, God you're the best. Thank you for all you do.
