Psalm 31:8

Never doubt that God is watching over you. He said he will always watch over us, but God is a gentleman and he will not interviene in our lives unless we allow him to.

8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you. -Psalm  31:8

Psalm 19 1-6

Glory of God

God reveals himself through creation everyday. Some people think God is silent and in the background but that’s not at all true, in fact it’s more like he’s right in our faces everyday and we just don’t know how to listen and see. We have become accustomed to the little things and have taken for granted the glory of God that presents itself daily through the sun, the air, water.. without realizing that God is the one that creates it. He has not given up on us and he has promised that he never will. If he had the world would be so much worse than it is now.

1 The heavens declare the glory of God; 
    the skies proclaim the work of his hands. 
Day after day they pour forth speech;
    night after night they reveal knowledge. 
They have no speech, they use no words;
    no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
    their words to the ends of the world. 
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun. 
    It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, 
    like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens 
    and makes its circuit to the other; 
    nothing is deprived of its warmth.

-Psalm 19:1-6

Psalm 91:1-2

  1 He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.  – Psalms 91:1-2

Repeating this verse every day and night makes me feel protected.

A few years ago I had trouble sleeping in the dark ; no I was not a little kid but teenagers could have fears also. I wasn’t afraid of the darkness but I was afraid of all the things my imagination came up with. I’d see shadows on the walls and feel like someone was watching me, I  wouldn’t be able to sleep next to anyone because if I saw their face in the dark It would freak me out. I’d see things that weren’t there, like someone moving or the person staring at me or smiling at me. No I’m not hallucinating, at least I don’t think so, I just have a really big imagination. I love my imagination because it make me creative, I could even make my own movie in my head; hear it, see it and smell it.

Until I started saying this prayer, nothing helped get passed the fears.

I notice that when I forget to say it I have nightmares and they’re vivid. They’re also weird, when I fell asleep i don’t notice so my mind is awake and I’m thinking but I’m also dreaming. I can’t move because I’m asleep but I start thinking ” hopefully someone will walk in my room so that I can wake up”. I see people walking around me in the dream and  it jumps to different settings and all this time my mind is acknowledging everything that’s going on, but I can’t wake myself up. Strange, I know.

I chose this verse today because last night I had a moment again where I felt like I wasn’t alone in my room and it made me jump and I said the verse so quick that I don’t even know if I said it right. And I just wanted to let people know that God is always looking out for us but as much as I believe in God I believe in the other side. They’re always around trying to make us fall and when I say this verse they have no choice but to go away because I just gave God all my trust and I believe with all my heart he protects me.
