Words of Encouragement

"The Lord looks on those who fear him,
on those who hope in his love,
to rescue their souls from death,
to keep them alive in famine.
Our soul is waiting for the Lord.
The Lord is our help and shield.
Our hearts find joy in the Lord.
We trust in God's holy name.
May your love be upon us, O Lord,
As we place all our hope in you."
Psalm 33:18-22

"They call and the Lord hears
and rescues them in all their distress.
The Lord is close to the broken-hearted;
those whose spirit is crushed God will save."
Psalm 34:18,19

As I was praying last night, I came upon these verses of hope in the Lord. I am sure there are others who will be blessed to hear these words, so I decided to post them. Where ever you are in life, take peace in knowing that God is close to you, He will rescue you when you call out to Him, He will never let you down and His great love is all over you!
