A must read post!

Jasmine has been posting truthful and encouraging words ever since she started her blog and this post in particular was so encouraging to me today. Thank you, Jasmine, for all your encouraging and convicting words!
I confess: I woke up this morning dreading what I would hear on the radio. However, my mood changed after I read and prayed through my readings for today. Here's just a couple of passages in Psalm 2 and 5 that put away the doubt and uncertainty I felt,

" But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;
let them ever sing for joy,
and spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may exult in you.
For you bless the righteous, O LORD;
you cover him with favor as with a shield."


" Why do the nations rage
and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
and the rulers take counsel together,
against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying,
"Let us burst their bonds apart
and cast away their cords from us."

He who sits in the heavens laughs;
the Lord holds them in derision.
Then he will speak to them in his wrath,
and terrify them in his fury, saying,
"As for me, I have set my King
on Zion, my holy hill."

I will tell of the decree:The LORD said to me, "You are my Son;
today I have begotten you.
Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage,
and the ends of the earth your possession.
You shall break them with a rod of iron
and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel."

Now therefore, O kings, be wise;
be warned, O rulers of the earth.
Serve the LORD with fear,
and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son,
lest he be angry, and you perish in the way,
for his wrath is quickly kindled.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him."

So, hop on over to "Joyfully home " to read this wonderful post.

In Christ,
