Psalms 34:4-8

"I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him."
Psalms 34:4-8

I like this poetic selection of verses.  It's easy to get darkened going through life, and to forget where we came from and to lose hope, in other people, in the world, and in ourselves.  But it doesn't have to be that way... there is still hope, if we open our eyes to see it.  And as the second verse relates... we can be lightened just as easily as we became darkened.  We can seek the Lord.  We can look to him for deliverance.  And I like the idea that we can taste and see... that there is evidence all around us that the Lord is good.  As we trust in him, blessings will come.  Today, let's reach out to the Lord, and trust that he will lighten us, and help us through whatever we face. :)
