How do people make it in this world without HIM?

"I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait on the Lord." Psalm 27:13-14

This is my verse for the week. I came across it as I was reading last night. It was our anniversary. We had gone out to dinner and received a call that a student had been seriously injured in an accident. So, Rich left after dinner to head to Scottish Rite hospital. Even though I missed him, this is what he does best: minister to others in time of extreme need. And this was extreme need ... someone's son was seriously injured and the parents needed all the help they could get. I am so proud of the ministry that Rich does for our school system and our community and I was more than glad to share him.
In a quiet moment before the dogs and I went to bed, I opened my Bible to Psalm 112 and then to Psalm 27. I realized then that I would have, indeed, despaired if I had not seen the Lord in this land of the living. This is a land of living that is hard and sometimes discouraging, but I will wait on the Lord and I will give Him thanks in the meantime for His blessing of everyday. I am so blessed to work with wonderful people, love a wonderful family and be loved, and I am blessed with fabulous friends. I really cannot wait to see what happens next. I am waiting.
