Scripture memorization

I just posted my comment on the LPM blog. It's a scripture memory thing They're doing and when I typed mine on there I couldn't help but notice, right underneath were the words will protect, will protect, will protect. You think God wanted to get it through our heads that He WILL protect us?! I think so. And I don't know about you, but in today's world I NEED to know that He IS going to protect me. My husband is a wonderful protector from a human standpoint, but he can't do anything about the economy or the ugliness I face from other people on a daily basis. I have to be able to deal with those things that I can't control as I go about my life. By the way the verses I'm memorizing are verses 8&9 of Psalm 121. I've already memorized the first 6 verses. In fact, I'm going to type out the whole chapter for you.

I raise my eyes toward the mountains. Where will my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to slip; your Protector will not slumber. Indeed, the Protector of Israel does not slumber or sleep. The LORD protects you; the LORD is a shelter right by your side. The sun will not strike you by day, or the moon by night. The LORD will protect you from all harm; He will protect your life. The LORD will protect your coming and going both now and forever.

Psalm 121, HCSB

Isn't that a beautiful Psalm? And an even more beautiful promise. He WILL protect us.
