What time I am afraid...

I take great comfort in the fact that God fully and clearly knows and understands me.  I see it in a thousand little ways in my daily life, in the little blessings and surprises He leaves along my path.  These little things are often things that only He would know that I have been desiring, things that only He would understand the way they fill me with joy and delight.

I also see the way God "gets me" through the little words He includes in His Word.  Take, for instance, the words "what time" in Psalm 56:3.  I take comfort in these two little words, for though I know that God's Word is full of admonitions to fear not, in these two little words I see that God knows and understands that there will come times when I am afraid. (Join me for the rest of this post on Sunday, August 7th, at Woman to Woman Ministries where each Sunday I share a bit of Sunday Soul Food!)

Scripture and Snapshot

Also happily linking up with the lovely


  1. Yes!! I am also quite taken with the *little words* of Scripture. I think of Jeremiah in Lamentations: "...yet I still dare..." And Habakkuk: "...even though...yet I will..." Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the book of Daniel: "...But even if he doesn't..." Job: "Though he slay me..." And Esther: "And if I perish..."

    And Jesus: "It is I."

    Good words today for me, Elizabeth. I've had some "what times" lately, and it's such a comfort to know that God understands.


    1. I love all of the powerful little words you shared in your comment!
