Because He Loves Me
One of the hardest things I have had to do as a military spouse was to watch my husband walk out the door, knowing he will not be back for a year. I know he can be in harms way, and there are days where we cannot talk to each other to have that reassurance that all is well. Moments of sadness and "what ifs" can enter your mind, and you have to quickly push those away, otherwise it can consume you. You have to put your faith in God.
Days can be a struggle when I cannot hear my husband's voice or there is no email in my inbox. One begins to worry. I am not going to lie, it is tough, very tough. However, what helps me get through the day and my sad times is Psalm 91:14 "Because he loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him, I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name."
Ahhh what peace washes over me when I read and re-read this scripture throughout the day (and sometimes during the night). He is our protector in any situation that we are in. He wraps His arms around us, protecting us, loving us. This scripture can help in any situation that arises in our life. We just need to put our trust and faith in Him.
Because He loves us.
