“The Lord preserves the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me. Return to your rest, O my soul, for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you. For You have rescued my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling.” (Psalm 116:6-8)

The Lord preserves those whom He has made. What is the point of a short lifespan and then more of the same? The Lord is producing something greater through the grace and mercy He gives. Look at it all simply. You were created by the Lord to live in His praise with thanksgiving. Come unto the Lord and know His goodness. Taste and see that the Lord is good, for He has rescued your soul.

Lord lead me through the fog of self to see that I am a part of all that You have created. Guide me in the goodness of Your mercy that I would forever live in praise of You. You are God and there is no other. You lead me to where I need to be and You provide for my every need. Keep my feet from stumbling that I would live into the promise You have given me through grace.

Merciful Savior, You have kept me from walking into destruction. Guide me according to Your goodness to live into the life to which I have been called. Help me now and always to live the promise You give through grace. May I daily remember that it is simple: trust You and walk with You. Amen
