Sunday Word - Insert Name Here

Loving this passage today.

Deuteronomy 32:10-11 (NIV)

 10 In a desert land he found him,
       in a barren and howling waste.
       He shielded him and cared for him;
       he guarded him as the apple of his eye,
 11 like an eagle that stirs up its nest
       and hovers over its young,
       that spreads its wings to catch them
       and carries them on its pinions. 
 I journal a lot about what is going on in my life.  Not only here.  I have a  journal, with actual paper in it, where I record some more intimate stuff.   Often I will look back on that journal and reflect on an entry that I wrote during an intense or painful time.   I love to read what scriptures I was led to read during that time.   Yesterday,  I was looking back at what I wrote about year ago and found the scripture above recorded.  I thought at the time it applied to someone else in my life.  Looking back now, I realize that the scripture also applied to me.   It always does.  

 I pulled some words from above and filled in my name.  Now, you try  - fill in your name where mine is. 

He found Janel.
He shielded Janel.
He cared for Janel.
He guarded Janel.
Janel is the apple of his eye. - love that
He hovers over Janel.
He catches Janel.
He carries Janel.

Comforting, eh?

I love the Word and how He speaks to me (us). great passage. The day I went for my breast biopsy my devo that morning was talking about fear primarily in this unstable financial world. The passage was Psalms 112:7 "He will have no fear of bad news;his heart is steadfast,trusting in the LORD."
Didnt say we wouldnt have bad news but that we wouldnt fear it and you know I didnt. I didnt even call to get my results. I waited until my follow up visit b/c I just didnt fear what they were. Turned out that everything was fine but that verse gave me great comfort in the waiting. :)
