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.

  1. I love this post...It is just what I need to hear right now!
    Thank You

  2. Thanks for linking this to Mustard Seeds....You and your family are in my prayers!

  3. You always put things into perspective for me. You are one strong lady. I admire you and will keep your family in my prayers.

  4. My favorite verse is Psalms 4:8 "I will both lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone Oh Lord, have made me to dwell in safety."

    I made it into a little song and sing it to my children at night...and to myself when I can't sleep when hubby is gone.

  5. I love that verse too---actually the whole chapter! I am saying a prayer for you and your family now.

    I am given to worry and fear too. It's something I struggle with in my Christian walk. Thank you for being real and transparent here.


  6. I can't imagine how hard that must be. My husband is away on a mission trip this week, and in an area where it would cost a fortune to call me, so I'm going crazy having a whole week I can't talk to him. Blessings to you and your husband for all that you do.

  7. I can't even begin to imagine how hard that would be...

    Having that verse, even for me, has helped me through a lot!! That is one of my favorites, even had it in my post today!

  8. I can't even think about watching my husband leave me to work and parent and decide things while he is gone.

    You are one strong woman, thanks for sharing with all of us.
